Leftists are reportedly dumping their party affiliation in Pennsylvania and joining the GOP ahead of the 2022 midterms as four times the number of former Democrats are registering as Republicans in what many see as a bellwether battleground state.
Panic is beginning to set in for Democrats as data coming out of the Pennsylvania State Department indicates a massive conversion of Democrats to the Republican Party in the state. That is the opposite trend of last year when President Joe Biden took office.
“I just got fed up and just felt like there has to be a better way,” asserted Beth Jones, 48, a retired Philadelphia police officer who registered as a Republican in March, ending her three-decade affiliation with the Democratic Party, according to Reuters.
With a number of heated statewide elections on the horizon, everything is at stake for the political parties as a Senate race could give control of the chamber to the Republicans.
The Party affiliation switch is a very bad sign for Democrats and shows rising dissatisfaction with Biden and the Democratic progressive agenda. The conversion rate in Pennsylvania is the highest in the nation in the last ten years, Reuters reports.
Currently, Democrats hold the majority in the state by over half a million registered voters. There are four million registered Democrats in Pennsylvania compared to 3.4 million Republicans. But that is changing in a massive way and fast as inflation bites and progressive policies strangle Americans with taxes, regulations, and higher prices.
Boots on the ground for Republicans are claiming that the economic concerns of residents are driving voters to switch parties. As things continue to worsen for families and workers, the GOP is capitalizing on it. They are signing voters up at gas stations where people reel in shock every time they fill their tanks. According to the Washington Examiner, it has become a “driving issue, if you will,” for many individuals.
“We’re at diners and gun shows, all sorts of different outdoor venues — wherever we can set up a table and people are congregating,” the GOP source noted. And it is working as the shock of rising prices at grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations as well as violent crime change the outlook of voters.

The switch back to the minority party in midterm elections is a common occurrence. Even so, Biden’s policies have alienated many generational Democrats in the Rust Belt which portends a political seismic shift occurring.
“The farther-left policies, the socialist ideas, some of the virtue-signaling, and the gender stuff all really doesn’t resonate with Pennsylvania,” a source told the Washington Examiner. “I think a lot of people are shedding their historical Kennedy or Roosevelt Democratic traditions just because the party has alienated them and they have more of a natural home now in the Republican Party.”
Pennsylvania will also elect a new governor in November.
The seats up for grabs in 2022 are now allegedly leaning Republican with many black voters joining the GOP following a calamitous pattern for Democrats in other states. Registered Republican voters in both Florida and Nevada have grown this year while Democratic registrations have fallen, according to Reuters.
If Republicans take control of the Senate or the House of Representatives or both this year, Biden will, in essence, become a lame-duck president.
