Many indicators point to the fact that Republicans will be in big trouble at the midterms.
Many things point towards the Republicans, from the victories in Virginia and the win in Kenosha, Wisconsin this week, of the first Republican county executive for decades, many are trending in that direction.
According to almost every poll with low numbers, Americans are fed up of Joe Biden’s and Democrats. According to polls, Americans tend toward Republicans as the leading choice in Congress.
Now there’s some more bad news for Democrats and it’s a very big sign.
Pennsylvania Republicans are now registering ex-Democrats at a rate four times higher than Democrats. What is driving this switch? Biden’s inflation and the rise of violent crime are two major factors that have influenced this switch.
“I just got fed up and just felt like there has to be a better way,” said Beth Jones, 48, a retired Philadelphia police officer who last month registered as a Republican, ending her three-decade affiliation with the Democratic Party.
It isn’t only in Pennsylvania.
Reuters reviewed six states with tight U.S. Senate race races. This requires voters to be registered in a party for participation in the nominating contests. Each state has a unique way of tracking voter registration. However, the analysis showed significant Republican gains in four of these states and little difference in two others. [….]
According to data from state elections boards, Republicans have so far in North Carolina gotten three Democratic converts to their ranks for each voter they have poached. This is despite a tight Senate race expected to result due to the resignation of Republican Senator Richard Burr. In 2021, it was half as much.
Florida and Nevada saw a rise in registered Republicans, while Nevada’s numbers of Democrats fell.
Pennsylvania is the place that saw the greatest jump. The GOP may have the biggest jump in ten years. This is despite the fact that the GOP did far better in 2016 than 2016, when Republicans took control of the Senate and White House. Republicans are even picking up voters in places like Philadephia — a Democratic bastion — 1,315 Democrats in the city have applied to change their registration to Republican, more than four times the number of Republicans flipping to Democrat.
Calvin Tucker, the deputy chairman of the Pennsylvania Republican Party said that the gains pointed to a strong showing by the party.
Speaking from the party’s recently opened office in northwest Philadelphia, Tucker estimated that petition drives and other efforts to engage with Black and other traditionally “underserved communities” in the city had yielded more than 100 converts or newly registered Republicans so far this year.
“It is a citywide outreach,” Tucker said. “We will do canvassing, knocking on doors, standing on corners, and talking to citizens and neighbors about who we are and what we are trying to achieve.”
But it’s not just the economy. It’s the radical leftist nature of the Democratic party as well — it’s the embrace of things like BLM, CRT, and the woke agenda. Americans look at all this and say this just isn’t the party I thought I signed up for. Americans see that it’s Democrats who want to up-end all the norms. It’s one of the things that helped Glenn Youngkin win the race for Governor in Virginia in November and Samantha Kerkman win Kenosha County Executive this week. Americans are poised to make a turn against radicalism, and the surge in registrations is a sign of that.
Democrats will have an uproar when Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker, is removed from her position. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, loses his chair in the Intel Committee. The Republicans then take control, stop the Biden agenda, and restore some justice to the Russia collusion scandal as well as the Biden one. It’s going to be glorious.
