The ‘R’s are blowing past the ‘D’s


  (My new American Thinker post)

It's amazing, but the GOP is getting bigger and bigger.  This is the latest from Paul Bedard:    

Democrats generally always lead Republicans in party identification, and independents outnumber both. 

By the end of December, the gap had shrunk, and even Gallup said the shift was notable.

“The year 2021 was an eventful one in politics, after a similarly eventful 2020 that also saw major shifts in party preferences. 

In early 2021, Democratic strength reached levels not seen in nearly a decade. 

By the third quarter, those Democratic gains evaporated as Biden's job approval declined. The political winds continued to become more favorable to Republicans in the fourth quarter, giving the GOP an advantage over Democrats larger than any they had achieved in more than 25 years,” Gallup wrote in its analysis. 

“The final monthly survey of 2021 showed the parties at roughly even strength, although that still represents a departure from the historical norm of the Democratic Party's having at least a slight advantage in party affiliation."

That's remarkable.  I guess that gasoline prices and a little chaos will do that to a party.  Can you say President Carter circa 1980?    

All this is remarkable because it shows how "pocketbook" issues will always matter most.  Again, nothing kills the middle class more than high gasoline prices and empty shelves at their local store.

Another thing driving the GOP gains is Hispanics walking away from Democrats.   President Biden has killed Hispanic support because of inflation and the border crisis.  I guess that Hispanics do not like an open border after all.  Of course not, they are the ones who live on the border and see the chaos every night.

The moment of truth is November.  We will see how all this works out when people vote.  No matter what, it's a different world because the GOP is catching up, and fast.

Happy # 78 Shelley Fabares

The very popular  Shelley Fabares was born in Santa Monica, California, on this day in 1944.

I was so stunned with the news that I had to check it out....it turned out to be true!

For some of us, Shelley Fabares was "Mary", the teen daughter" in the very popular "The Donna Reed Show" of the 1960s. (You can still see the reruns and it was an entertaining series)

More recently, she was Christine in "The coach", the funny TV comedy of a few years ago.

Between "Donna Reed" and "The coach", Shelley played different roles on TV and even made 3 movies with Elvis.

She also recorded "Johnny Angel", one of the biggest hits of the pre-Beatles era.

It became one of the best selling "teen girl loves high school boy" songs of pop music history.
