No matter how one looks at the latest poll from The Wall Street Journal, there is simply no good news for Democrats.
That poll, conducted last week by two pollsters, one from each political party, reveals the biggest shift of all: a 26-point turnaround among white suburban women - 20 percent of the electorate nationwide - from Democrat to Republican just since August.
Exclaimed political writer Joshua Jamerson for the Journal:
The GOP has seen a shift in its favor among several voter groups, including Latino voters and women, and particularly white suburban women. That group, which the pollsters said makes up 20% of the electorate, shifted 26 percentage points away from Democrats since the Journal's August poll and now favors the GOP by 15 percentage points.
It's difficult to overstate the importance of that shift. That voting bloc, along with blacks and Latinos, has long been the Democrat Party's most dependable demographic. But the news from the Journal gets even worse for Democrats.
A majority of voters lack confidence in Biden, whether it's his disastrous economic policies that are wreaking havoc with the family budget, or his anti-fossil fuel agenda that's raising gas prices.
And among Independents, more than a third of the electorate, trust in the resident of the White House is in the toilet. The turnaround is setting records for the Journal's polling:
Some 48% of voters said they thought congressional Republicans were best able to get inflation under control - the largest share in Journal polling this year. By comparison, 27% said congressional Democrats were best able to rein in inflation.
This huge reversal is reflected in the generic congressional polling, too: There's been a five-percentage-point jump favoring Republicans just since August.
In other signs of concern about the economy, 64% of poll respondents said that inflation is rising and straining their finances, including 36% who described those strains as major. Both figures are the highest in The Journal's polling this year.
Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott, who also serves as the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, sees the same thing happening in the Senate. In speaking with Fox News in New Hampshire on Monday, Scott predicted Republicans will regain control of the Senate next Tuesday with a gain of at least two and perhaps as many as four seats flipped in their favor.
"It's real simple. People are fed up with open borders, high inflation, high crime. They're just fed up with this stuff, and the Democrats did it."
The shift to Republicans is also showing up in races for governor. Republicans currently control 28 state houses and expect to add to their column governorships in Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, and Wisconsin. Even in deep-blue New York Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul is in the fight for her political life as her Republican opponent, Representative Lee Zeldin, has dramatically narrowed her advantage.
The shift should be more than enough to overcome Democrats' voter-fraud machinations that many believe gave the 2020 presidential election to the present bumbler-in-chief.
The Democrats are just going to have to cheat harder to turn back the tide.
It is good that Americans are waking up enough to fight the insanity.
It is not an easy path to use the Republicans to change our trajectory, but it's all we've got.
We need to focus on reforming the party, BIG TIME, in the party reorganization elections which happen all over across the country, this fall and winter.
A QUARTER of Americans say they are ready to take up arms against the government: Poll also finds that more than a third of those currently own guns. If they steal this election like 2020, they WON'T GET AWAY WITH IT!
I think it's more than a quarter,
and RISING. We have a community of ranchers out our way that have built stone walls around their places, and one fellow has a working CANNON.
A LOT of fed-up working class out there quietly waiting for the other shoe to drop.
America MUST BE saved from the Drooling Moron and his Globalist puppet masters.
