Since Jan. 3, Republicans have added around 20,000 active voters, according to the Utah Elections Office. During that same time, Democrats have lost around 8,000 active voters and the number of unaffiliated voters has dropped by nearly 12,000.
This looks to be a heavy trend nationally. It appears the ONLY way Democrats could come close to winning many of their 2022 races is by considerable cheating.
John Lee, the North Las Vegas Democrat mayor announced last week that he’s running for re-election as a Republican because the Democrats have an “anti-American” agenda.
“The party moved past me. In fact, Democrats are now leaving that party in droves because of the socialist agenda that has taken place in the Democratic Party,” Lee announced. “They’re totally anti-American. There was nowhere for people who thought and felt like I did about the virtues and values and morals of being a good American. It was time to leave. They have destroyed the Democratic Party now.”
“They had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the Socialist Party. It’s not the party that I grew up with 25 years ago in this environment, and it’s not the party I can stand with anymore,” he continued.
“The working class, or working men and women of this country, and also the small business owners are not a part of the conversation anymore. It all has to do with the elitists and it has to do with the socialists. That is not the agenda that I have in mind for this country of the future,” he said.
“When you’re a pro-life Democrat, a pro-gun Democrat, and you’re a very conservative person, that’s not really well known in the Democratic Party anymore,” he added. “And so for me to hang on as long as I did, hoping the party would change, it didn’t, it got worse.”

“During the 2020 election, we saw certain districts in South Texas as having a promising future for the GOP as we began to see a lot of Mexican-Americans, as well as in other states with Cuban-Americans and Colombian-Americans,” Macarena Martinez, the Republican National Committee’s Texas communications director, said.
“But here in Texas, we saw a huge shift to the GOP during President Trump’s second presidential election, given his stance on immigration, given his stance on the border wall, backing the blue, supporting law and order,” she continued, also noting the number of people employed by oil and gas companies in South Texas turned away from Biden’s energy policies.
