There are many signs that the midterms in November will be a major red wave for Republicans. From the November gubernatorial win in Virginia to the historical victory last week by the first Republican county official in years in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, many things seem to be moving in the Republicans’ direction.
The majority of Americans are fed up with Joe Biden and the Democrats, according to almost every poll. These figures fall below the trough. Polls indicate that Americans tend to favor Republicans ahead of Democrats in their choices for Congress.
More bad information regarding Democrats is a significant signal. Former Democrats living in Pennsylvania are signing up as Republicans at more than four times the rate Democrats are undergoing a similar transition. One of the main factors driving this change? Voters are infuriated with Biden’s inflation and his allowing violent criminality.
“I just got fed up and just felt like there has to be a better way,” said Beth Jones, 48, an ex- Philadelphia Police officer, who this month enrolled as a Republican and ended her long-running affiliation with the Democratic Party.
It's not only limited to Pennsylvania. Reuters looked at registration numbers in six states with the potential for influencing the competitive U.S. Senate races in November and that generally require voters to belong to a particular party to vote in nomination contests. Each state tracks voter registrations in a different way and has different requirements–the study showed Republican increases in four states but no significant differences in two.
In the state of North Carolina, where a competitive Senate race is predicted due to the departure of Republican Senator Richard Burr, Republicans so far this year have nabbed three Democratic voters for every voter Democrats have won, according to elections board records. In 2021, the Republican advantage in the state was around 50 percent. The same is true for Florida and Nevada. The numbers of registered Republicans increased in the first couple of months, whereas the numbers of Democrats fell somewhat.
However, the most significant increase is happening in Pennsylvania. It could be the biggest in a decade, with the GOP performing much better than it did in 2016 when Republicans took over the White House as well as the House and Senate. Republicans are also gaining voters in cities such as Philadelphia, one of the major Democratic popular spots–1,315 Democrats from Philadelphia have made applications for a change of registration to Republican, more than four times the number of Republicans who have switched to Democrat. Calvin Tucker, deputy chair of the Pennsylvania Republican Party, said the gains indicate an impressive performance for the party.
In a recent interview from the party's newly inaugurated office in the northwest of Philadelphia, Tucker estimated that petition drives and other initiatives to reach out to Blacks as well as other historically “underserved communities” in the city have resulted in more than 100 conversions or new registered Republicans to date this year. “It is a citywide outreach,” Tucker explained. “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 about the economy. It’s also about the radical leftist character that is the Democratic party, too–and the embrace of issues such as Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Critical Race Theory (CRT) as well as the “woke” agenda. Americans take a look and decide that this wasn't the kind of party they signed up to join. They recognize the fact that there are Democrats who are determined to change every norm. This is one reason why Glenn Youngkin won the race for Governor in Virginia in November and Samantha Kerkman won Kenosha County Executive in Wisconsin this week. Americans are poised to make an adjustment to the radical left, and the registrations are a good indicator of the wave expected to come.
Democrats will experience chaos in the event that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is booted from the Speakership. If Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) loses his chair on the Intel Committee, the Republicans will be in charge, stopping the Biden agenda and restoring some justice to the Russian-collusion smear against former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden’s own brewing scandal involving Russia and other foreign countries. It's going to be a great time.
