Republikaners are well-known for a number of conservative values-related characteristics.
Among them are economic responsibility, a strong military, faith, constitutional rights, a smaller federal government, and a zero-tolerance approach to crime.
Republicans prefer to set clear boundaries and confront difficult subjects.
Not surprise, Republicans retain a big edge in the perceptions of Americans about the management of crime, particularly following the left’s massive defund the police initiative in 2020, during which Biden remained largely mute.
According to an April ABC/Washington Post survey, Republicans had a 12-point edge over Democrats.
“That’s a marked shift from last summer when Americans were about evenly divided on which party is better positioned to contend with crime,” according to the Washington Post.
If anybody believed that “defunding the police” was a good idea, they have undoubtedly reconsidered by now.
Last month’s recall of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin demonstrates voter discontent with the progressives’ approach to addressing crime.
Further south in Los Angeles, almost 700,000 individuals signed petitions to recall the district attorney of their county, George Gascón, citing his soft-on-crime policies.
Even in these places, which are clearly ruled by Democrats, the left has lost touch with the public’s perspective on crime and violence.
The Associated Press reported last month that Democrats are doing more than declaring that they will vote Republican in the upcoming election; they are actively switching their party allegiance.
According to the news organization’s analysis of voter registration data, “More than 1 million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year,”
“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 Associated Press stated.

It seems eyes are opening to the state of the country under Trump as opposed to the state of the country now.
The switch is most pronounced in the suburban counties outside of 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 end of the Trump era,” according to the AP.
Fox News released its “Power Rankings” on Monday forecasting the GOP will retake the House of Representatives with at least seven seats to spare. CONTINUE READING…
