The gap continues to widen between Republicans and Democrats, especially among voter support. A Gallup poll released on Monday provides a snapshot of what can be expected during the 2022 midterm elections and beyond, as Americans are steadily self-identifying as Republicans than Democrats now more than ever before.
Responses from 12,000 Americans interviewed by phone indicate that the political landscape of U.S. voter registrations shifted five points toward the Republican Party by the end of 2021. The 49 percent of Americans who self-identified as Democrats at the beginning of 2021, dropped drastically to 42 percent at the end of the fourth quarter.
Now, more than 47 percent of those interviewed by Gallup self-identify as Republican. The last time Republicans held this five-point advantage was in the 1990s, when Republicans had gained several House seats under George H. W. Bush.
This discovery proves the Republican Party is amassing an incredible voter advantage that could easily translate into positive results in the 2022 midterm elections.
The Republican Party has made a point over the last four years to shift their platform toward one that highlights not only America First policies, but also increased individual liberties, worker protections, school choice for concerned parents, and election security.
This is especially important to voters as the Biden administration continues to promote policies that strip away liberties, parental roles, and create environments where irregular voting discrepancies are more prone to occur.
Many Americans have seen their personal burdens exasperated by losing their jobs as a consequence of government-implemented shutdowns, as well as mandates.
The Democrat Party insofar has failed to address the concerns of thousands of Americans nationwide that find incremented disparities and increased poverty, especially in states and cities where they are in control.
