More voters switched to the Republican Party than to the Democratic Party

| June 27, 2022

Among the voters that changed their party affiliation in the past year, approximately two thirds changed to the Republican Party while the balance changed to the Democratic Party. Many in the suburbs are breaking from the Democratic Party in response to daily issues aggravated by inflation. Some among the Democratic Party believe that Joe Biden is too passive about this challenge.

From Fox News:

While not the final nail in the coffin for Democrats, the voter trend is yet another indicator that Republicans stand to make large gains in Congress and state governments across the country in November.

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel attributed the big gains for her party to “Biden’s gas hike, the open border crisis, baby formula shortage and rising crime.”

“Biden and Democrats are woefully out of touch with the American people, and that’s why voters are flocking to the Republican Party in droves,” McDaniel told Fox News Digital in a statement. “American suburbs will trend red for cycles to come.”

Biden’s administration has scrambled to address skyrocketing gas prices, as well as inflation that sits at a 40-year high and shows no signs of slowing down.

Members of Biden’s own party have criticized the White House response to the economic crises, saying he is being too passive.

More voters choose the red pill.


From your keyboard to God’s ears.


How much of that is crossover by D’Rats in order to vote for the weakest R in primaries and then promptly vote for the Communist in the General is not known.


Not many at all, I wager.

The Democrats have never been organized. To think such an effort could happen on a large scale is laughable. I imagine it’s more likely some are just switching back after the Trump era, and more are just feeling the pain of the economy, and witnessing how utterly out of touch Democratic leadership is. Biden is about as inspiring as salmonella, and the focus on shit that doesn’t matter to most people, like transexuals in sports or racial equity matter far less than the ‘old’ Democratic ways – say, tax breaks for the middle class, small business programs, fundamental education for kids, etc.

Until they get the vocal but absurd portion of their base under control, they’ll likely lose people, especially given the economic downturn.

I’m considered the most liberal of libs that ever lib’d here, yet if you put Biden up against, say, a Romney or a Huntsman, there’d be no fucking question that I’d vote R.

The Stranger

Yeah, like either of those two cocksuckers or anyone like them would get the nod. If that’s what it would take to have you vote R, you can stay on your side of the fence.


Amen to that.

Seriously, a vote for some RINOs over pedo Joe? Stevie Wonder saw that coming. 🙄


Ten short years ago, Romney did get the nod. That ain’t that far back, and indicates to me how far the Republicans have shifted in recent years, sadly.


LC, IMHO, Mittens is nothing more than a sleazy, grifting career politician that looks after what’s good for Mittens and no one else. Always has been, always will be. He is the epitome of what a slimy politician is. YMMV


LC, the party didn’t drift, it just saw what a lying POS mittens is


Now do Liz Cheney.

The Stranger

No! Not even with your dick and The SARC pushing!


Gonna have to disagree with ya there LC, at least here in Colorado. Since we now have open primaries, where independents can vote (i know, not exactly apples to apples, but pretty damn close), many democrats have registered as independent, just so they can do exactly as CDR describes.. and they are organized, as one I know of is an antifa / blm organizer who has done just that.


And I’ll disagree with ya right back, Fyr. Sure, there may be a few, but you’re the first person I’ve heard of who knows someone doing that. And I’ve got a fair number of friends who are Democrats.

The vast majority of people want to ensure they can vote for someone they like in the general, so they pick a good candidate they like. Hell, hasn’t that been the problem in the past few years? The candidates are the ones nobody likes?

I mean, let’s think about it – if what you’re saying was an effective strategy, then the R’s would do it to the D’s, too, and if there were a lot of people on each side doing it, what we’re effectively saying is that the R’s are actually D’s in disguise, and the D’s are actually R’s in disguise, all trying to fuck with each other. That’s … not likely.

USMC Steve

Your socialist democrat buddies don’t know anything until the hivemind tells them what to think. And in Missouri, Claire McCuntskill openly admitted to having her social democrat minions sabotage the primaries so we would have a weak candidate to go against her.


Any way to corrupt and work the system is the D-rat way.


Hell, hasn’t that been the problem in the past few years? The candidates are the ones nobody likes?” .. Ok, on that we can agree

“My guess is that where you live LC, anyone with an (R) after their name wouldn’t have a chance to get elected, so it doesn’t really matter who runs on that side.

Seems that it’d be a waste of effort in your neighborhood. But in an area that leans red, or is a toss-up, would be much more effective. Boulder is a far cry from Douglas County.. Jefferson used to be red as an be, but it turned blue in recent years too.

Granted, much of that is due to massive influx of people running from stupidity in California without realizing that the crap they voted for is the reason that state is so jacked..

But as others have pointed out a number of politicians (including Liz Cheney, have quietly, or openly encouraged such action. Would these politicians be calling for such if they didn’t think it would happen?


Ok, I’ll grant you that I may have been wrong about the numbers, though I would argue CDR D was wrong in the approach, at least in the one example I looked at – the Georgia primaries.

This AP story talks about how 37K people who voted in the prior Democratic primary switched and voted in the Republican one this year, and it likely avoided a runoff which might have gone against him. So, clearly, a real effect. But at the same time, that’s 37K out of over 1.1M people — so, around 3.2%.  It didn’t seem like much. But the population of Georgia is ~10.5M, out of ~329M in the US, so if you scale the ~1M people who switched parties by that to get an approximation of how many might be in Georgia, you get … ~32K or so. So yeah, mea culpa, maybe there’s a lot more of that going on than I think.

At the same time, in those Georgia elections, they voted for Raffensperger… who won by a large margin against the runner up, and thus wasn’t the weakest candidate.


I still do think some percentage of people are just sick of the Democrats – I registered as one once, to vote for Obama over Clinton in the primaries, and then switched back to an independent. So it’d be interesting to know where most of these registration changes happen – if, as you said above, they happen in a place that’s already a shoe-in for one party or the other, I’d be inclined to think it was more to do with annoyance with the party vs gaming the system. For example, if you switched from D to R in Boulder, what would it do? Not bloody much, that’s for sure. The R is going to lose no matter what. For state-wide races, it’s a different story in some places, like Georgia.

But most states aren’t competitive like that, so taking a percentage of population like I did above isn’t terribly accurate. At the end of the day, I think the number if higher than I thought… but also lower than you and others think.


That’s how we got Trump.


I’ll believe it when they vote GOP in Nov.

Why did these democrat peeps make the switch because after all, the supreme ruler (biden) told all his peeps what he was going to do when he got in and his peeps voted him in so why are they unhappy. I don’t understand because if someone told me what he/she was going to due when elected in office and I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t vote for the person so the peeps that voted the supreme ruler must have liked what he was going to do or just didn’t listen to what he was going to do. Where are you Scooby doo to clear up this mystery.


I believe many of them either thought these changes would only affect other people, or else they were sheep crying about “mean tweets.”

Hack Stone

Back on the day that Joe Biden was declared the “winner”, Hack Stone and his lovely bride picked up her friend and the friend’s daughter, a college aged know it all.

College Girl: I am so happy, there is no longer a rapist in the White House!

Hack Stone: What are you talking about? I thought Joe Biden was the winner.

College Girl: I’m talking about Donald Trump.

Hack Stone: I wasn’t aware that he raped anyone. Could you provide me a link to a reputable news site that can confirm that?

College Girl: You can look it up.

Hack Stone: That’s okay, I hope that you are looking forward to spending $4 for a gallon of gas.

College Girl: He is only going to raise taxes on those making $400,000 a year.

Hack Stone: That’s so sweet. You keep thinking that.

Kids say the darnedest things. Hack really misses the days when gas was only $4 a gallon. Maybe Hack should check in with her to see how she is doing under Build Back Better.

The Stranger

You’re far nicer than I. I would have left her ass on the side of the road.

So, do these party switchers elect conservative Republican politicians or RINOs?


It’s cute that some people think their votes will actually count when they vote against the “Chosen Ones”.
