Republican Sen. Tom Cotton revealed that Americans are abandoning the Democratic party and joining the Republican party instead, because Americans feel safer with the GOP.
Cotton cited a new Gallup poll which was released on Monday which indicated that Americans are fleeing the Democrat Party in droves for the Republican Party.
“That’s welcome news for us in the Republican Party,” Cotton said. “We are excited to have so many more Americans registering as Republicans. It reminds me of what Ronald Reagan said, though, that he didn’t leave the Democratic Party. It left him. That’s what you’ve seen over the last year in this far, far leftward lurch of the Democratic Party under Joe Biden.”
The Gallup poll stated:
“[In] the first quarter, 49% of Americans identified as Democrats or leaned Democratic, compared with 40% who were Republicans or Republican leaners.
In the second quarter, Democratic affiliation stayed high, while Republican affiliation began to recover, increasing to 43%.
The third quarter saw a decline in Democratic identification and leaning, from 49% to 45%, as Biden’s ratings began to falter, while there was no meaningful change in Republican affiliation.
In the fourth quarter, party support flipped as Republicans made gains, from 44% to 47%, and Democratic affiliation fell from 45% to 42%.”
“These Americans are joining the Republican Party because they know that we will protect them, protect their families, protect our country, we will protect their rights, we’ll protect their job and their right to earn a living and to keep that money,” Cotton continued.
“We’ll protect them from the kind of threats that we face on our streets and a crime wave that’s washing all across America, or foreign threats like predatory behavior of the Chinese Communist Party, or terrorists and any other threats they may face as well. That’s what Americans elect Republicans do. That’s what they expect us to do. And more and more Americans are turning us to do just that job.”
The five-point lead fourth quarter lead for the ties the largest lead the party has held in the Gallup poll since it began measuring such data in 1991.
The only other quarters the GOP held a five-point lead were in early 1995, after the GOP seized control of the House for the first time in four decades, and the first quarter of 1991, after the U.S. victory in the Persian Gulf War.
The Gallup poll follows a left-leaning Quinnipiac University poll which just found that Biden’s approval rating had plummeted to an embarrassingly low 33%.
“Americans give President Joe Biden a negative 33 – 53 percent job approval rating, while 13 percent did not offer an opinion,” the poll reported. “In November 2021, Americans gave Biden a negative 36 – 53 percent job approval rating with 10 percent not offering an opinion.”
Biden’s approval rating from Democrats sank by double digits from 87% in November to 75% in the new poll. The percentage of Democrats who now disapprove of him doubled from 7% to 14%. Only 1 in 4 Independents approved of Biden’s job performance while only 2% of Republicans approved of Biden’s job performance.
