(Republican Insider) – The Democratic Party has lost yet another voter to the GOP thanks to the utter failures of the Biden administration and the disaster their policies have left in their wake, such as a crisis at the southern border, massive inflation rates and increased prices for goods and gas, not to mention the horrendous debacle in Afghanistan.
According to a report from the Western Journal, Erica Ingram, who has been a Democrat for her whole life and whose 24-year-old son was murdered, shot to death outside of their Cleveland home in 2019, stated that she is strongly leaning toward voting Republican for the upcoming election cycle.
Ingram went on to single out J.D. Vance, the Ohio Republican candidate for the United States Senate, going on to tell NBC News that he best reflects the values and views she has about the current state of affairs in our nation.
“I can see him having compassion as to where the Democrats don’t have no compassion,” she explained. “They’re, like, weak. They don’t fight hard enough as to where the Republicans get up there and they pull out all stops.”
NBC: After her son was murdered in Cleveland, this lifelong Democrat has decided to vote Republican for the first time.

In other words, Democrats don’t have the intestinal fortitude to take a bold stand for the things Ingram believes in, too terrified of offending people and not walking that politically correct line, whereas Republicans will get the job done and not care about who gets offended in the process.
“Citing Cleveland Police Department figures, NBC News reported the city had 179 murders in 2020, its most ever, followed by its second-most in 2021, at 165,” the report said. “A Gallup poll taken in April found concern over crime and violence at its highest level since 2016, with 53 percent saying that they have a ‘great deal’ of concern.”
When you combine those with individuals who have a “fair amount” of concern, the number skyrockets to 80 percent.
Americans' concern about crime and violence in the U.S. has edged up in the past year, and for the first time since 2016, a majority (53%) say they personally worry a "great deal" about crime.

“Not surprisingly Republicans hold a strong advantage in the handling of crime in Americans’ minds, especially after the left’s whole defund the police thing in 2020, during which Biden stayed pretty much silent. An ABC/Washington Post poll conducted in April found Republicans have a 12 percentage point lead over Democrats,” the Western Journal reported.
“That’s a marked shift from last summer, when Americans were about evenly divided on which party is better positioned to contend with crime,” the Washington Post went on to state in a report.
The frustration voters are experiencing with the progressive approach to dealing with crime can best be seen in the recall of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin just last month.
“Further south in Los Angeles, over 700,000 residents signed documents seeking to have their county’s district attorney, George Gascón recalled as well, citing his weak-on-crime policies,” the report continued.
The Associated Press put out a report last month that revealed Democrats are actually doing a whole lot more than saying they will vote for the GOP in this election. Many of them have stated they are switching up their entire political affiliation.
“More than 1 million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year,” voter registration data analyzed by the news organization went on to say.
“The previously unreported number reflects a phenomenon that is playing out in virtually every region of the country — Democratic and Republican states along with cities and small towns — in the period since President Joe Biden replaced former President Donald Trump,” the AP reported.
The switch from Democrat to GOP is most easily seen in suburban counties that lie outside of major cities like Denver, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland.
“For example, in Lorain County, Ohio, just outside Cleveland, nearly every party switcher over the last year has gone Republican. That’s even as Democrats captured three-quarters of those changing parties in the same county during the end of the Trump era,” according to the report put out by the AP.
On Monday of this week, Fox News released its power rankings which forecasted massive victories for the Republican Party that will culminate in the taking of the House this November.
“With redistricting completed and the bulk of the primaries behind us, the Power Rankings model now reveals a clear advantage for the GOP in the House. With 218 seats required to take control, the GOP is forecast to take 225 seats to the Democrats’ 180 seats,” Fox News stated.
Even if Democrats were to somehow win every single toss-up race, they’d still remain the minority which would be struggling to stay alive.
“On the Senate side, the outcome is still much more up in the air, but favors a Republican takeover. The upper chamber is currently divided 50-50 between the parties,” the report continued.
Out of 34 seats that are up for grabs, 20 of them are located in solid red states, likely red or lean red categories.
“The GOP has to win only two of the five toss-up races to take control of the Senate, whereas the Democrats need to win four of those races just to reach a 50-seat ‘majority’ with the aid of Vice President Kamala Harris,” according to Fox News reports.
The Democratic Party is now damaged goods, which is excellent news for the future of America.
