Surprise, surprise, the Dems are in serious trouble ahead of the midterm elections. It’s old news now, and Nancy and Chuck know they’re doomed. But they had no idea things were this bad.
A growing number of Americans are ditching their party affiliation from Democrat to Republican, and they’re leaving in record droves.
In all, over the past year, the Fox News network reported that more than 1.7 million voters have done so. Two-thirds of those have gone to the GOP, while just 630,000 have switched to the Democratic Party, according to the report.
But voters aren’t the only ones bailing, Democrat politicians themselves are calling it quits after Joe Biden has sunk both his and their ratings at a record pace. An astonishing 32 Democrats have announced they will not seek re-election, and those who are seeking another term want nothing to do with the President’s endorsement.
Dorchester County, S.C. council member Harriet Holman and former Cincinnati Sheriff Jim Neil joined “Fox & Friends First” early Tuesday to explain their own reasons for making the switch.
“[The Democratic Party] went wrong when they stopped listening to the people when they continued to give out instead of giving a hand up… and it’s going to cost taxpayers so much money in the future that our children are going to be paying for all this free money that’s being given out right now,” Holman said.
Holman left the Democrat Party in February because she said the Democrats no longer aligned with her values. She won the GOP nomination 4 months later as a Republican on June 14th.
Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel attributed the big gains for her party to “Biden’s gas hike, the open border crisis, baby formula shortage, and rising crime.”
“Biden and Democrats are woefully out of touch with the American people, and that’s why voters are flocking to the Republican Party in droves,” McDaniel told Fox News Digital in a statement. “American suburbs will trend red for cycles to come.”
Interestingly, Republicans are gaining a lot of ground in the suburbs of both large and medium-sized cities, “where voters who supported President Biden in 2020 are struggling with inflation and growing increasingly critical of Democratic social issues,” Fox News reported, citing data compiled by The Associated Press.
