Red Wave Incoming: Pollster Indicates Republicans Are More Energized Than Democrats by Leaps and Bounds

The Democrats have succeeded in tripping themselves up repeatedly — to the point where their chances of coming out of the midterms with some dignity intact are probably out of the question now.


According to the New York Post, JMC Analytics and Polling was gathering data during the primaries in various states and found that when it came to being involved in the political process, Republicans were outstripping Democrats in attendance in large numbers:

As of midday Wednesday, Republican voters made up 54.9% of the turnout in Idaho, Kentucky, North Carolina, Oregon and Pennsylvania, according to data compiled by JMC Analytics & Polling.

That figure jumps to 60.9% of turnout when all 10 states that have held primaries so far this year are included.

“In every state where I’ve been measuring turnout changes relative to previous midterms, I’m seeing a clear advantage on the Republican side,” JMC Analytics founder John Couvillon told The Post, adding that the picture was the exact opposite in 2018, when Democrats took control of the House with a net gain of 41 seats.

This doesn’t mean Republicans can rest easy. Traditionally, Republicans are more likely to vote first and initially have the higher numbers. Moreover, there are still 173 days until voters venture to the polls, but as Couvillon notes, “States that are swinging and are Republican are going to move far to the right.”


More numbers indicate a massive red wave will sweep the nation. Overall turnout is up 13 percent from 2018 with a 30 percent increase in Republican turnout while Democrats have actually decreased by six percent. Interestingly, in some of these states, Democrat turnout is actually up, but is so outpaced by Republicans that the increase disappears:

Of the 10 states that have held primaries so far, the only one where Republican voter turnout has dropped from 2018 is Oregon, where JMC reported a 23% decrease. Democratic voter turnout increased by 12% in North Carolina and 15% in Pennsylvania, but was dwarfed by Republican increases of 44% and 32%, respectively.

Democratic turnout also dropped 29% from four years ago in the former battleground state of Ohio.

Where did all the Democrats go? Are they so disappointed with the Democrats that they just decided not to turn up and vote?

Possibly, but nothing will make a party loyalist vote for the other side quite like an economic downturn, and Democrats have overseen one of the worst in modern history. The more they attempt to blame it on anyone but themselves, the more people seem to want less to do with the Democrat Party.

Moreover, polling from earlier in May shows that an overwhelming 94 percent of the country is concerned with the inflation that our country is experiencing under Democrat control, and what’s worse for Democrats, the majority of the country believes that it’s the Republicans that have the knowhow to fix it.

So it’s likely that many Democrats are showing up and voting, they’re just voting for Republicans.
