Earlier this month we learned that if elections for Congress were held today, 47% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican candidate, and 41% would vote for the Democratic candidate, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
The GOP is set to take back at least the House due to Biden’s and the Democrats’ destruction of the country. The Democratic Party is not only losing support from Hispanics in massive numbers but from blacks and Asians as well.
Because Democrats know they will be on the losing end and perhaps never come to power again in the Lower House, they are voting in Republican primaries to get the squishiest, RINO candidates on the ballot.
A recent AP analysis of data from the L2 company found that more than 37,000 people who voted in Georgia’s Democratic primary two years ago cast ballots in the GOP primary last month, an unusually large number of crossover voters. Even with a limited sample of early votes, the data show crossover voters narrowly defeated Trump’s selections for secretary of state and, to a lesser degree, governor.
Governor Kemp was not dependent on Democrats during his blowout victory against his Trump-backed opponent, but Raffensperger was. According to the latest AP tallies, the Republican secretary of state crossed the 50% threshold to avoid a runoff by roughly 27,000 votes.
According to early voting data, 37,144 former Democratic voters voted in the Republican primary.
This primary season, crossover voting, also known as strategic voting, is common across the country, as voters work to keep state and federal governments from being controlled by Trump supporters.
Voting in primaries of either party is legal and easy in dozens of states. Over the years, both parties have used strategic voting on a few occasions.
One place Democrats may start using the practice more is Florida because it officially just became a red state.
Conservative Brief reported:
The Republican Party has now taken the edge and made Florida officially a red state, which could have devastating consequences for Democrats, Tampa Bay Times reported.
“This is a milestone moment in Florida’s history,” said Helen Aguirre Ferré, executive director of the Republican Party of Florida.
The state of Florida has long been considered to be a battleground state for elections.
But in recent years, the state has not only gotten more conservative, but it also appears that Republicans are growing stronger in the Sunshine State.
Voter registration data shows that there are 5,142,002 registered Republicans in the state of Florida in 2022.
By comparison, there are 5,007,590 Democrats registered in the state.
Accordingly, there are now 134,412 more Republicans registered in the state than there are Democrats.
Democratic strategist Steve Schale predicts that Democrats could face a lot of difficulties going forward.
“Without a full-frontal, professional and accountable partisan effort to turn it around, sometime before the end of this year, there will be more Republicans registered in Florida than Democrats,” Schale predicted on his blog page.
“That has NEVER happened before. And, given their voters have higher turnout scores — this isn’t a great place to start,” he exclaimed.
Republican leaders are also cognizant of the substantial gains they’ve made, and they have no intention of losing the momentum they’ve built.
“In a state like Florida, when you consider that you get 1,000 new residents a day, you really can’t stop. You have to keep going and you have to keep engaging,” explained Helen Aguirre Ferré, the executive director of Florida’s GOP.
One of the party leaders went even further in his candor.
“We are going to flip Florida and we’re going to make Florida red permanently,” Republican state party chair Sen. Joe Gruters promised.
Conservative Brief continued:
Democrats in Florida are a minority and that minority is liable to grow once the GOP-controlled legislature begins its redistricting process later this year, leaving them further behind and making it even more difficult for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to keep her iron grip on the lower chamber.
Democrats fear that Republicans will use the state’s massive population growth as a means of eliminating some of their congressional seats.
That enormous growth, however, makes it much more likely that Republicans, who control 16 of the state legislature’s 27 seats, are going to be looking hard and fast at paring that down during redistricting in a way that will help lock in a GOP majority for years to come.
The Tallahassee Democrat published an op-ed encouraging liberals to “play the long game,” pointing out that Florida has been shifting to the Republican party.
“Democrats are at a distinct disadvantage in Florida. Republicans have been in control of the executive and legislative branches since 1998. They have redrawn district lines to their favor. The number of registered Republicans is now greater than the number of registered Democrats and the Cuban-American population is trending even more Republican,” according to Cliff Staten, the author of the op-ed.
Given the drubbing the Democrats will surely see in the midterms, this year is turning out very badly for them. This is good for everyone else because the last thing we need is more radical socialists pushing an insane green agenda like they are now which has led to historically high inflation, and gas and food prices.
