The GOP is benefiting most in the suburbs of large and medium cities, where voters who supported President Joe Biden in 2020 are struggling with inflation and growing increasingly critical of Democratic social issues, according to an analysis from The Associated Press.
Roughly 1.7 million Americans have changed their party affiliation over the past 12 months. Two-thirds of those have gone to the GOP, while just 630,000 have switched to the Democratic Party, according to the report.
While not the final nail in the coffin for Democrats, the voter trend is yet another indicator that Republicans stand to make large gains in Congress and state governments across the country in November.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott shared the news on Twitter:
“More than 1 million voters switch to GOP in warning for Democrats. Republicans boosted their share of party changers in 168 of 235 suburban counties AP examined These included suburban counties in Texas. Texas has also seen gains in South Texas.”
