There are certain voting blocs on which the two major political parties rely heavily. For Republicans, it’s not only critical that they have the support of Evangelical Christians and non-college-educated white men, but they also need them to be energized and head to the polls. Similarly, the Democrats count on black and Hispanic Americans along with college-educated white women, and failure to secure strong majorities in those demographics can destroy their chances.
But then there are the battleground demographics which are often in battleground states. While Democrats have already seen a devasting and consistent downward trend with Hispanics – one of those aforementioned key constituencies which are currently showing even less Democratic support than that of white folks overall – we’re also seeing a dramatic shift with suburban swing voters, a group that can tilt the direction in favor of either party if polls move dramatically enough. And that’s exactly what appears to be happening right now.
According to a report today by the Associated Press:
“A political shift is beginning to take hold across the U.S. as tens of thousands of suburban swing voters who helped fuel the Democratic Party’s gains in recent years are becoming Republicans.
More than 1 million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year, according to voter registration data analyzed by The Associated Press. The previously unreported number reflects a phenomenon that is playing out in virtually every region of the country — Democratic and Republican states along with cities and small towns — in the period since President Joe Biden replaced former President Donald Trump.
But nowhere is the shift more pronounced — and dangerous for Democrats — than in the suburbs, where well-educated swing voters who turned against Trump’s Republican Party in recent years appear to be swinging back.”
In November’s midterm elections, even if every other demographic were to vote along similar lines as they did two years ago, the dramatic decline in the support of Hispanics that we mentioned would likely be enough to result in a red wave for Republicans. Democrats were already in trouble before this news about the suburbs, and now it’s more than just Hispanics who are jumping ship.
Democrats are hemorrhaging African American support, and Asian Americans seem poised to abandon them as well. Young voters, which is to say Millennials and Gen Z, approve of President Joe Biden at a remarkably low 43%. And now that we see the statistics on the current trend unfolding in suburbia, we’re not merely talking about a one-time, outlier election with temporarily lopsided results. We could be in the midst of a once-in-a-generation seismic shift… away from leftism and the Democratic Party and towards conservatism and the GOP.
While Democrats continue to try and exploit what they think will energize their base and sway independent voters in their direction – including abortion, gun control, and January 6th – Americans of all colors, genders, sexual proclivities, and financial status are saying no to the Democrats. Americans aren’t buying what the Democrats are selling and are instead focused on truly important issues such as our plummeting economy, national security, and the left’s attempts to indoctrinate our children in their twisted values. Democrats are whistling past the graveyard, but the Grim Reaper is swooping down in their direction.
