Today’s highly interesting read (02/01/22): Covid hysteria is driving a wave of moms away from the Democrats

Today’s read is from Bethany Mandel, writing in the Daily Mail. Here’s an excerpt:

In the first quarter of 2021, 49% of U.S. considered themselves to be Democrats. By the third quarter of 2021, self-identified Democrat (and Democrat-leaning individuals) dropped to 42%.

For Republicans it went in the opposite direction. 40% self-identified with the GOP at the start of 2021, and 47% put themselves in the Republican-camp at the end of the year.

That’s a 14-percentage point swing from a nine-point Democratic advantage to a five-point GOP edge, and among the largest advantages the GOP has ever held in Gallup polling.

Strikingly, the most pronounced shift away from Democratic party identification came in the third and fourth quarter of the year, coinciding with the fall as children returned to school.

Why might parents have snapped in the fall when their kids finally went back to school?

Ashley (a pseudonym), a mother of three from Central New Jersey, fumed, ‘I hate when Democrats like Biden get all defensive and say that 95% of schools are open right now. They are being willfully ignorant and not paying attention that even though schools are ‘open’ they are NOT NORMAL.’

  1. Good it’s about time ppl wise up and toss dems to the curb. They don’t know how to givern, everything done is just to make a ” woke” statement, not because it’s right. They’re soft on crime and its devastated our cities, they opened our border and that will hurt us for dozens of years, if we ever recover. Drugs,criminals and terrorists have flooded in to our country.
