[COMMENTARY] Wake Up, Democrats: Republicans Added ONE MILLION New Voters Last Year

More than one million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year, according to voter registration data analyzed by The Associated Press. The previously unreported number reflects a phenomenon that is playing out in virtually every region of the country in the period since President Joe Biden replaced Donald Trump.

At the same time, Republicans are deeply involved in an effort to block any Democratic victories in the 2022 midterms and beyond, a movement that began in the suburbs as Trump loyalists ran in smaller races for the Board of Education and other local government roles. The AP says it’s the well-educated swing voters who initially turned against Trump’s Republican Party in recent years who are apparently swinging back. Over the last year, far more people are switching to the GOP across suburban counties near larger cities such as  Denver, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland. Republicans also gained ground in counties around medium-size cities such as Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Raleigh, North Carolina; Augusta, Georgia; and Des Moines, Iowa, according to the AP.

In a political environment where President Biden’s many successes are consistently drowned out by the right’s complaints and Trump’s still-looming presence, Democrats have the additional challenge of ensuring election security. Even the shocking testimony from mostly Republican insiders during the January 6th House Select Committee hearings that directly implicate Trump in the effort to overturn the 2020 Presidential election hasn’t dampened his fanbase’s enthusiasm to restore him to power.

Great, but Republicans are getting away with their obvious effort to make sure the people who aren’t like them suffer the most. We all lost a major Constitutional right to privacy on Friday. They don’t want anyone to choose when to start a family, but they also have no plan to feed, house, clothe, or educate all of those unwanted babies. They complain about the baby formula shortage and then vote against the President’s Operation Fly Formula. They want public schools shut down, or at least turned into churches if they’re not going to close. How do more people not see this? How are Democrats not screaming about all of this on every news channel?

I urge you to contact your Democratic Reps and ask them how they intend to make sure our votes are secure this November and in every election from now on. That is, unless you’re stoked about us becoming Gilead.
