Voters switch lopsidedly to GOP, in warning for Dems

A political shift is beginning to take hold across the U.S. as tens of thousands of suburban voters who helped fuel the Democratic Party’s gains in recent years are becoming Republicans.

Across 31 states, about two-thirds of voters who have switched their official party registrations in the past year have switched to the Republican Party, according to voter registration data analyzed by The Associated Press. The phenomenon 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.

Nowhere is the shift more pronounced — and dangerous for Democrats — than in the suburbs. Over the last year, far more people are switching to the GOP across suburban counties from Denver to Pittsburgh. Republicans also gained ground in counties around medium-size cities such as Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Des Moines, Iowa.


  1. There is always a problem in determining the public mood when your bias tells you to ignore that part of the public that opposes you so you can delude yourself into believing you have widespread support. Both sides do it but the liberals have turned it into their specialty. By assuming that the only voters who count are the voters who support them, they are consistently shocked when they lose elections.

  2. Wow everyone does it but liberals are worse!

  3. Yes, because liberals preen about how honest and upright they are.
