I’m writing this on Monday night. I always write blog posts the night before and schedule them for the next day. I am really looking forward to news about what voters think about Joe Biden’s socialist policies over the last 2 years. In this post, I report on a recent Wall Street Journal poll, and I have a story about Joe Biden’s closing remarks to the voters about his priorities going forward.
First, here’s news of the Wall Street Journal poll, reported by Breitbart News:
In August, Hispanic voters favored Democrats by 11 points. That lead has been cut to five points in October.
In just four years, Democrats have lost Hispanic support by 26 points.
The margin of five points in October is far less than in 2020 when President Joe Biden was favored over former President Donald Trump by 28 points. In 2018, Hispanics favored Democrats by 31 points.
A similar exodus from the Democrat party is seen among black voters. The poll found 17 percent of black voters would vote for a Republican in 2022. In 2020, that number was only eight percent, a nine point swing in two years. Eight percent also supported Republicans in 2018.
The WSJ poll sampled 1,500 people from October 22-26, including 180 black voters with a 7.3 margin of error and 400 Hispanic voters with a 4.9 margin of error.
Why is this happening?
But with the rise of crime, illegal immigration, and inflation, which disproportionally impacts less financially wealthy citizens, black and Hispanic voters have moved towards the Republicans.
I just want to re-assure white Americans that you are fine to vote for the Republican party. You are not racist if you do. Your freedom-minded fellow citizens of color are voting Republican, and there is room for you. I myself am a non-white legal immigrant by merit. This is my first election. I voted in the primaries, and I early-voted a straight Republican ticket in the generals. You are welcome to join me in voting against transing kids, higher gas prices, COVID fascism and skyrocketing inflation.
Here’s another story from The Federalist that I thought was interesting:
…Joe Biden’s closing message for 2022. “We’re going to be shutting these [coal] plants down all across America and having wind and solar,” Biden told a crowd in deep blue California on Friday, arguing that it was “cheaper” to generate electricity from wind and solar.
[…]In California, which not only leads the nation in “clean energy” production but is leading the rest of us into rolling blackouts, residents pay 24.62 cents per kilowatt-hour for energy, around double the national average. There are only three other states where residents fork 20 or more cents over, the isolated Hawaii and Alaska and the frack-banning New York. The price of a gallon of gas in California is around two dollars over the national average, at $5.458. In Texas, it’s $3.173.
[…]Biden reiterated his position at a rally for New York Gov. Kathy Hochul later this past weekend. Responding to a climate activist heckler, Biden shouted: “No more drilling. There is no more drilling! I haven’t formed any new drilling.” It’s one of the few true things the president has said in a while. The Biden administration, even during historic spikes in gas prices, effectively shut down any new federal leases.
This is what Americans voted for in November 2020:
Now everyone understands what Biden meant. We have lived under it for 2 years. His words. Your dollars. He has learned nothing. His position has not changed at all.
If gas prices and inflation are not important to you, then don’t forget about the COVID lockdowns.
The Manhattan Institute explains:
A new study from Johns Hopkins University’s Institute for Applied Economics supports what I and others have long maintained: lockdowns do not work, and their economic, social, educational, and psychological costs far outweigh any health benefits they might bring.
[…][T]he Hopkins literature review and meta-analysis, by Professors Jonas Herby, Lars Jonung, and Steve Hanke, finds that lockdowns—“defined as the imposition of at least one compulsory, non-pharmaceutical intervention (NPI)” such as school and business closures and limitations on movement and travel—“had little to no effect on Covid-19 mortality.”
[…]The Hopkins findings echo and confirm the conclusions in an April 2021 review by Canadian economist Douglas Allen that lockdowns had little or no impact on the number of Covid-19 deaths.
I don’t think there is a single Democrat in the Biden administration who understands how the world works. On any topic. It’s just virtue signaling and distrust of freedom from top to bottom. These people are not qualified to lead. They are disconnected from reality. We need to vote them out and replace them with people who are better at crafting policies that achieve results for us – the voters.
