Democrats continue to see dark warning signs on the political horizon, even as party leaders attempt to frame November’s midterm elections solely around abortion. Those warnings are increasingly clear both in the growing Hispanic electorate and in American suburbs.
For Hispanic voters, there’s a pair of recent shining examples out of Texas. Democrats went all out in supporting a fresh new face against longtime stalwart Rep. Henry Cuellar, but border area voters chose him anyway. Cuellar is an outlier, the one pro-life party member left in the House.
This is such an issue for his colleagues that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took to Instagram to suggest a purge of the party’s lone abortion foe. Democrats should “reassess if it’s appropriate” for him to continue in the party, the radical firebrand declared.
Every knee shall bow.
Cuellar digs in to support border control, a position that rings true in South Texas — even among Hispanics — but not to the party’s limousine liberals.
Then there’s Mayra Flores, a Republican who won a special election to represent a South Texas district that for decades was a Democratic stronghold. She is a bright young legislator who symbolizes the inroads the GOP has made into the Hispanic community.
This pivotal state is fertile ground for Republicans who are frankly more in tune with many of the core values of its border residents. The community is overwhelmingly Catholic and rooted in family and tradition. And who knows better the perils of open borders than those who reside nearby.
Another piece of evidence that Democrats would like to ignore came from an Axios-Ipsos poll just released Thursday. A majority of Hispanic voters, 51%, support former President Donald Trump’s Title 42 protocol that President Joe Biden so desperately tried to overturn.
The protocol that makes it easier to control illegal migration.
Furthermore, the Associated Press recently analyzed voter registration data and found a seismic shift among suburban voters to the GOP. Over a million voters across 43 states in the last year have shifted party affiliation, and it’s primarily in U.S. suburbs.
Over two-thirds of party migration favors Republicans, a sharp reversal of previous trends.
The fact remains, the people screaming outside the Supreme Court and vandalizing pro-life centers were never ever going to vote Republican. The voters who will decide the country’s leadership are not on the cable news, but they are watching.
