The 2022 midterms could be historic for showing a scientific marvel: For the first time in history, Black and brown are going to make red.
And it’s bad news for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her political allies.
The Democratic Party, which prides itself as the official party of diversity, is bleeding away the support of black and Hispanic voters — a sign observers say points to a coming Big Red Wave in the election, which takes place one week from today.
The big shift is making big headlines in the mainstream media.
USA Today laid out the latest numbers. “Now 40% of Hispanics and 21% of Blacks are backing the Republican” Party, the paper reported.
For everyday readers who don’t follow polls, these statistics might not be huge news. But for the experts, that’s a huge change that threatens to tear a majority-sized hole in the Democratic Party’s coalition.
If that poll holds true, the GOP will take almost three times as many black votes as in 2020 — and win landslide victories all over the country.
“Apart from the small shift among Hispanic voters, Joe Biden’s electoral coalition looked much like Hillary Clinton’s, with (b)lack, Hispanic and Asian voters and those of other races casting about four-in-ten of his votes. Black voters remained overwhelmingly loyal to the Democratic Party, voting 92%-8% for Biden,” reported the Pew Research Center.
The Republican Party going from eight percent to 21 percent in that key democratic in less than two years is a massive increase.
“Even if the GOP gains 15 to 18 percent of the black vote, it’s a game-changer,” wrote John Nolte of Breitbart News.
To try to hold off the “Blexit” movement of African American voters away from the Democratic Party, the media targeted black conservatives.
A column in the Los Angeles Times branded commentator and Republican California candidate for governor Larry Elder “the black face of white supremacy.”
Polls seem to show this tactic blew up in their face.
Hispanic voters, too, are moving toward the GOP. Trump won 38 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2020, more than the 25 percent Republicans scored during the 2018 midterm blowout.
That number has crept up a few percentage points, fueled mostly by the weak economy under Joe Biden. While third-quarter GDP numbers showed minor growth, the first half of the year showed a country mired in recession — with the poorest Americans taking the brunt of his inflation-fueled economic downturn.
It also didn’t help that First Lady Jill Biden compared Hispanic Americans to breakfast tacos.
Nolte believes the tectonic plates beneath the political surface are moving historically Democratic voting constituencies into the Republican column.
Aside from economics, Democrats have decided to double down on a far-Left social agenda on issues like abortion.
“Then there’s the Democrat party’s open embrace of this demonic transsexual agenda. A largely Christian black population does not want the horrors Democrats are pushing, which is gay porn in schools and the permanent mutilation of their children through puberty blockers, chemical castration, and sex change operations,” Nolte wrote.
Hispanics, who are more religious than the average American, also do not buy into that agenda.
Democrats’ decision to claim Republicans will abolish Social Security also seems to be going nowhere with voters, especially those overwhelmed with crime-ridden neighborhoods, failing schools, and closed stores.
Candidates on the Left are paying the price in what once seemed extremely safe states.
Take New York state, which hasn’t had a Republican governor in 20 years, as an example. In the latest poll, Republican candidate Lee Zeldin leads incumbent (and unelected) Governor Kathy Hochul, albeit by less than one percentage point.
On the Left Coast, Washington Senator Patty Murray has been forced to pour $17 million into her reelection bid against Republican Tiffany Smiley. Still, the latest Trafalgar poll has Murray down to just a one-point lead.
Races in swing states are starting to slip away, too. Starting on October 27, Republican candidate for Senate in Georgia Herschel Walker has pulled ahead of Senator Raphael Warnock.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden has largely been forced to the sidelines, as more and more Democrats avoid campaigning with him.
Black and Hispanic voters share the same concerns as most Americans: a prosperous economy, safe streets, and low prices that help them care for their families. They don’t want to pay a Biden premium to transition to “clean” energy, defund the police, or let purple-haired Millennials tell their kids about 50 different genders (and how to have a surgery to become one).
If the polls hold up for another week, Republicans could have the most diverse electorate in their party’s history—and control of both houses of Congress.
