It never seems to make it as far as the national media even in right-wing circles but what local leaders are doing in small-town America is devastating news for Biden and Democrats.
Simply, they are leaving the Democrat party and it’s happening all over the country.
In Indiana, Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding told reporters he’s done with the Democrat Party because they want to “burn that thing everyday” while he pointed to the American flag. He told the Associated Press that he is “tied of seeing fires set in our streets” and has switched to the Republican Party.
In Minnesota, six Democratic mayors public endorsed President Trump proclaiming that Biden hasn’t done enough to help working-class people. The letter was signed by Harbors Mayor Chris Swanson, Virginia Mayor Larry Cuffe, Chisholm Mayor John Champa, Ely Mayor Chuck Novak, Eveleth Mayor Robert Vlaisavljevich, and Babbitt Mayor Andrea Zupancich.
“Today, we don’t recognize the Democratic Party,” the letter read. “It has been moved so far to the left it can no longer claim to be advocates of the working class. The hard-working Minnesotans that built their lives and supported their families here on the Range have been abandoned by radical Democrats. We didn’t choose to leave the Democratic Party, the party left us.”
The Trump campaign believes that Minnesota is in play and has opened offices inside the state.
In Illinois, Hobart Mayor Brian Snedecor publicly announced he is leaving the Democrat Party and has switched to a Republican.
“Over the past several months I’ve become increasingly convinced that the Democratic platform is moving more and more to the left. It’s driven many people, both moderates and conservatives, away from the Democratic party,” Snedecor said.
In Lowell, Indiana Town Council President Mike Gruszka has been elected twice as a Democrat however announced he is switching parties.
Citing the calls to defund the police Gruszka has had enough. “You’re going to defund the police?” Gruszka said. “That’s a tough one to swallow.”
“Today we’ve come to a point that the progressive left have gone so far left that they don’t share my beliefs anymore,” he said. “There’s nothing in them that share my beliefs.”
The news organization Axios reported in August that the voter registration gap between Democrats and Republicans has narrowed in key battleground states. But, it has nothing to do with new voters.
But a lot of it has to do with voters switching parties or dropping out of the electorate — not necessarily a surge of new voters registering as Republicans nor indicating new Trump voters, according to Dave Wasserman of The Cook Political Report.
In other words, President Trump is taking voters away from the Democrats and these are just the ones that are taking the time to switch parties. What about all the Democrats that don’t care about which party they registered to and are going to vote Trump?
What’s really significant about these local leaders leaving the party is that they are the base/grassroots of the party. They are supposed to be the future Democrat congressman, governors, and senators. Instead, they are leaving in mass for the Republican Party because the Democrats have sided with the radical left.
Democrats have gone on a campaign propping up elite “Republicans” like Bill Kristol who are voting for Biden. But what’s really happening is that ordinary people are fleeing the Democrat Party.
