Walk Away: One Million Voters Flip From D to R Nationally

Some suburban Karens are getting a little freaked out by how freaky-deaky the Democrat Party has become, reports AP:


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. Over the last year, far more people are switching to the GOP across suburban counties from Denver to Atlanta and Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Republicans also gained ground in counties around medium-size cities such as Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Raleigh, North Carolina; Augusta, Georgia; and Des Moines, Iowa.

Ben Smith, who lives in suburban Larimer County, Colorado, north of Denver, said he reluctantly registered as a Republican earlier in the year after becoming increasingly concerned about the Democrats' support in some localities for mandatory COVID-19 vaccines, the party's inability to quell violent crime and its frequent focus on racial justice.

"It's more so a rejection of the left than embracing the right," said Smith, a 37-year-old professional counselor whose transition away from the Democratic Party began five or six years ago when he registered as a libertarian.

...

While party switching is not uncommon, the data shows a definite reversal from the period while Trump was in office, when Democrats enjoyed a slight edge in the number of party switchers nationwide.

But over the last year, roughly two-thirds of the 1.7 million voters who changed their party affiliation shifted to the Republican Party. In all, more than 1 million people became Republicans compared to about 630,000 who became Democrats.

...

In Florida, Republicans captured 58 percent of party switchers during those last years of the Trump era. Now, over the last year, they command 70 percent. And in Pennsylvania, the Republicans went from 58 to 63 percent of party changers.

The current advantage for Republicans among party changers is playing out with particular ferocity in the nation's suburbs.

The AP found that the Republican advantage was larger in suburban "fringe" counties, based on classifications from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, compared to smaller towns and counties. Republicans boosted their share of party changers in 168 of 235 suburban counties AP examined -- 72 percent -- over the last year, compared with the last years of the Trump era.

These included suburban counties across Georgia, Iowa, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Ohio, Virginia and Washington state.

Republicans also gained ground in further-out suburban counties, which the CDC lumps in with medium-size cities and calls "medium metro" -- more than 62 percent of such counties, 164 in all, saw Republican growth. They range from the suburban counties north of Denver, like Larimer, to Los Angeles-area ones like Ventura and Santa Barbara in California.


The Republican advantage was nearly universal, but it was stronger in some places than others.

For example, in Lorain County, Ohio, just outside Cleveland, nearly every party switcher over the last year has gone Republican. That's even as Democrats captured three-quarters of those changing parties in the same county during end of the Trump era.


...

Back in Larimer County, Colorado, 39-year-old homemaker Jessica Kroells says she can no longer vote for Democrats, despite being a reliable Democratic voter up until 2016.

There was not a single "aha moment" that convinced her to switch, but by 2020, she said the Democratic Party had "left me behind."

"The party itself is no longer Democrat, it's progressive socialism," she said, specifically condemning Biden's plan to eliminate billions of dollars in student debt.

Biden hit a new low in the CBS poll, though I saw a later report pegging his support at 41%, not 40%:

Screenshot (2420).png

Screenshot (2421).png

It's also a record for his RCP net-negative rating (that is, the difference between his positive rating and negative rating).

I'm very confident that Biden will not be the Democrat candidate for president, but that doesn't help the Democrats all that much: Biden is pushing consensus Democrat policy. He's not coloring outside the Democrat lines.

This is what they want. They are a hyperwoke party. They are the party of Drag Queens in Schools. That's not hyperbole; that's something that actual Democrat politicians support. The Michigan Attorney General declared "A drag queen in every school!"

So who would run in place of Biden, with greater popularity? Bernie Sanders would be a more authentically socialist socialist, but is he going to disown the woke identity politics that are now central to the Democrats' core?

They can't go any further left, and it's politically impossible to move to the center.

So all they could offer is "Bidenism, But Better!"

Time will tell, but I suspect (or maybe it's just that I hope) that the heavy-handed, insane and tyrannical COVID response probably made a lot of people realize the nature of their opponent. I also hope this sticks, and they don't backslide into being communists-by-default in the future.

It's weird, and it just goes to show that you never know what the last straw is going to be. Student loan forgiveness is bad policy but it is also probably not going to happen or it has arguably already happened (continuous moratoria to keep them on the plantation is far stronger). In the grand scheme of things, it's fairly tame as compared to a lot of the other transgressions the Dems routinely perpetrate.

But you never know which thing it will be. It's almost always a surprise when the camel's back breaks.

Yep. Social changes, really big ones, are almost never what people fight to make happen or promote officially. You just cannot ever tell what it will be that flips someone.

Imagine a GOP governor deciding to clean up voting in Philly.

I mean aside from probably being shot, the job is not possible because every single person working under him would be a lefist crank with a great deal of personal graft to lose if things are cleaned up.

If and when the Republicans "own" the violent crime issue, they better damn well do what it takes to actually solve the problem, which requires harsh remedies, and the endurance and focus to see them through many years of implementation. Since I have little hope that they will do that, I think it might be better to leave the crime albatross hanging around the Dems' necks as long as possible.

I vividly remember an incident with my mother. She went from being a squishy Democrat-by-default to casting her first Republican vote (Trump) between 2010 and 2016. I was once sitting in her living room with my brother and I commented that Obama had done the impossible and turned out mom into a Republican.

She called out from the kitchen (I didn't even know she could hear me), "It wasn't Obama. He sucks, but it wasn't him that did it. It was that G-d damn hockey stick."

What pushed her out of her original, default and long-lived position was the climate data hoax. You never know what it's going to be.

156 It is amusing how many people run to twitter to spout things they are completely ignorant of.

I suspect if you asked the twitterati "Do you approve of the recent SC decision to ban abortion in America?" with the answers of

1) Yes
2) No
3) The Decision didn't ban abortion in America, but allowed states to restrict abortion legislatively

that the numbers would be something like 90-0-10.

What if the secret of Q wasn't some super-secret government organization who'd swoop in and save the day. What if it was people learning to research things for themselves, find out the truth and, having learned the truth, share it.

I occasionally watch reaction videos on youtube and one genre which has cropped up a lot lately is black couples reacting to Thomas Sowell, information about the history of the Dem party, folks watching JP Sears.

After a while all the repetition starts to take hold. It's easier for you to accept what you see with your own eyes. TPTB try to stop it but the ink is already in the water.

I wonder what percentage of this...is due to that. Or is this just people pissed about gas prices and trannies?

Based on observation, it takes about 10 years to forget.

I say this because the MS Gulf coast has been wiped out twice by major hurricanes in my lifetime; in both cases beach facing properties could be had for a song initially, but after about 10 years the number of houses and businesses had returned to close to pre-hurricane levels. We're now 17 years out from Katrina, and there aren't many bare slabs now.

However, the demographic shifts to the Sun Belt are much more permanent.

August or September, probably. Revolving credit (credit card) balances are shooting the moon right now. People are handling this inflation by charging it, but that is going to run out of steam by the end of July, then the people doing that will face both a higher monthly mandatory minimum payment *and* have no room to avoid cutting to the bone. That will push consumption even lower, as prices keep rising and capacity to absorb it is structurally diminished as people being ground down exhaust credit lines.

I expect retail activity to decline sharply by the end of Summer as reality sets in and the ability to offload the difference onto credit cards is exhausted.

306 The Black Panthers in CA took to open carrying long guns for intimidation purposes, so gubner Reagan! sought and got a ban on open carry from the legislature.

There's probably a lesson in that. What, I'm not sure at all. There are some armed black 'militias' in TN and GA doing the same thing, and they aren't hassled as long as they are law abiding.

Posted by: GnuBreed at June 27, 2022 04:31 PM (F0YaR)

I believe that was part of the wider shift away from open carry, because, IIRC, that was the genesis of the concealed carry legislation in WA.

312 Remember my post last week? 81.6% of voters making over $200K strongly disapprove of Biden's handling of the economy.

It would be nice if the Republicans, seeing as they are supposedly the opposition party, explained to these people what happened.

Namely, Biden WANTED to take more money from them, for his friends and allies, but taxes would get Democrats in trouble. So instead just inflate the currency, intentionally. That way you still get to hurt them...who are mind you "the rich" ... without having to have a vote on taxes.

I live in Commiefornia and came back from a vacation to find a mail-in ballot in my mailbox. I DID NOT request it. Apparently now they literally just mail unsolicited ballots to every single voter in existence here.

Today if you aren't Chinese you are second class. My best friend lives in Oahu...his wife is a banker. They just accept that being white is part of the package. It is also the reason, in spite of their encouragement, that I won't move there.

But then figured, WTF, I need to stock up at the Class VI store anyway (military liquor store). So I attended the class. Taught by this black Staff Sergeant woman who didn't have a clue. About anything.
A Senior NCO, black guy final gets u p and says "This is Bullshit! How come these classes are always taught by one of the sistas? Where is the Hispanic chick? The Asian chick? Hell, even the white chick?"
