Republicans look like they are favored to win big in the 2022 midterms.
Democrats have other plans.
But Nancy Pelosi has one ace up her sleeve that will make Donald Trump go ballistic.
Democrats were wiped out in congressional races in 2020.
The Donald Trump realignment of the electorate where working-class Hispanics and non-college-educated white voters drifted towards the GOP spelled doom for Democrats last November as Republicans won every tossup race on the board and netted a gain of 14 seats when even Nancy Pelosi predicted Democrats would pad their majority by 15 to 20 new seats.
This shift against the Democrats accelerated in the Virginia and New Jersey elections where both states’ voting patterns shifted 13 points to the right, and Republicans swept every statewide office for the first time since 2009, regained control of the House of Delegates, and won several unexpected State House and Assembly wins in the Garden State.
Joe Biden’s poll numbers are in the low 40s – some polls even show Biden in the high 30s – as the American people suffer buyer’s remorse after Biden’s policies created illegal immigration and inflation crises.
Pundits forecast a favorable political environment where Republicans are likely to win back one or both houses of Congress.
But Joe Biden and the Democrats padded the voter rolls by adding the largest numbers of naturalized citizens as legal voters in over a decade.
From October 1, 2020 to September 30, about 855,000 legal immigrants became naturalized American citizens — the highest annual number of legal immigrants getting naturalized in more than a decade. Put another way, more than 2,300 legal immigrants were naturalized every day over the last Fiscal Year.
Compare that to Fiscal Year 2020, when about 625,400 legal immigrants were naturalized. In Fiscal Year 2019, about 844,000 legal immigrants were naturalized and the year before then, in Fiscal Year 2018, nearly 762,000 were naturalized.
In fact, the last time this many immigrants became naturalized citizens was Barack Obama’s first year as president.
“The last time naturalization rates were this high was in Fiscal Year 2008 when more than a million legal immigrants became naturalized American citizens,” Breitbart reports.
But will this strategy backfire on the Democrats?
Naturalized immigrant voting patterns appeared to shift rightward in 2020 as Donald Trump’s pro-law and order, anti-COVID lockdown messages resonated.
“In Chicago, 2,158 precincts have shifted right since 2016, compared with 1,508 that have shifted left. In Chicago’s Chinatown, the Republicans had a 34 percent increase from what they got in 2016, while contrastingly, the Democrats recorded a drop of 6 percent,” El Tecolote reported.
Democrats are operating under the faulty assumption dating back to the 2012 election that merely promising amnesty to illegal aliens wins Hispanic and minority votes.
The opposite is true.
Democrats’ support for open borders alienates some immigrant communities because naturalized immigrants tend to be more patriotic and appreciative of America’s culture.
Counting on Hispanic and other irregular voters led Democrats to disastrous defeats in 2020 and 2021.
And it looks like they could be counting on this same failed strategy again in 2022.
