We are going to be looking at four different trends all of which signal a mass exodus from the Democratic Party, an exodus already spelling disaster for the 2020 election. We will take a look at each one, and see just how dire things are becoming for the Democrats.
In the midst of all the impeachment madness (and it is madness of course, how the House of Representatives is getting away with this charade is beyond me) what is so interesting is that there have indeed been a number of articles that are coming out observing that Democrats are increasingly leaving their party. It is very interesting because the defection is coming from a number of different angles, and I want to focus on four; these are four currently active groups of defections leaving the Democratic Party.
Number one: The hashtag #WalkAway movement. This is a movement founded last year by Brandon Straka, who is a gay hairdresser, who was once your quintessential liberal. Well he got red pilled and founded a movement that exposes the Democratic Party as no longer a viable alternative to those who want to think for themselves, or those who love their nation and its culture. When Straka considered himself a leftist, he noticed that the Democrats were seeking to control and intimidate him through fear; do not vote for Trump because he will destroy all your rights and he will actively persecute you, etc. Straka recognized that this was an attempt to keep people voting Democrat simply through fear and intimidation. He also noticed how insane things were becoming in terms of the politics of grievance. Straka himself has recognized that even within the gay community you have this whole notion of white privilege being forced upon. Apparently, it is now fashionable among leftwing cultural Marxists to accuse gay white men of having the ultimate privilege! Because, after all, they are white, male, and gay. White gay men are the ultimate beneficiaries of privilege. Brandon noticed that this nonsense of grievance politics never ends. So Brandon founded the walkaway movement, and as of now, tens of thousands of other Democrats are saying: Enough! They are posting their five minute video testimonials on why they are leaving the Democrat Party once and for all. It is just amazing. We are seeing tens of thousands of one-time Democrats walking from the Democratic Party and its love affair with insanity, with its cultural Marxism and leftwing identity politics. That’s the first trend, the hashtag walkaway movement.
The second trend we are seeing is a comparable movement known as Blexit. Blexit being of course a term that signifies Black Americans declaring their independence from the Democratic Party. On average, blacks vote around 87 percent for the liberal Democrat candidate. Blexit is a movement that seeks to end that secular liberal cultural Marxist hegemony over the black vote here in the States. The Blexit campaign was founded by the wonderful Candace Owens, who is a very young and powerful voice in the conservative movement And I think the potential for Blexit is enormous. A Zogby survey released in May of last year found that black support for the Democrats was down 20 percent since January, which is a 20 percent decline in a matter of six months. Another relatively recent poll surveyed black women; it was a Black Women’s Roundtable/ESSENCE poll and it found that black women, who are in many respects the heart of the black voting constituency for the Democratic Party, they were noticeably abandoning the party. According to the survey back in 2016, black women supported the Democratic Party by an overwhelming 85 percent; but in 2018, that number fell to 74 percent, an 11 point drop. Moreover, Trump’s approval among blacks has been as high as the mid-30s, which is stunning for a Republican President. Rasmussen, if I recall, had Trump around a 35 percent approval rating among particularly black men. Blexit is happening, and it is significantly contributing to the mass exodus that is going on from the Democratic Party.
There has been a THIRD exodus and this one is huge! Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA has called them the ‘beer drinking Democrats’ exit. These are your blue collar manufacturing workers, factory workers, who have historically voted exclusively Democrat, but who defected in droves to vote for Trump. I never get tired of citing this statistic from the 2016 election there were over 200 counties that had voted for the Democratic presidential candidate in every election since 1984 by a 20 point margin that suddenly swung over and voted for Trump by a comparable 20 point margin. You have to let that hit you! I think it is a major indicator of this massive political tectonic shift that is going on. County after county after county in Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, after having voted for Mondale and then for Dukakis and Clinton twice and Al Gore, Kerry, and then Obama twice, over 200 counties, that voted for the Democrat by a 20 point margin for the last three decades, all of a sudden, to the shock of pollsters and pundits alike, turned around and voted for Donald Trump by a comparable 20 point margin. These were 40 point swings to the nationalist populist right. Trump won the so-called Blue Wall, right? these were the states that Hillary was guaranteed to win because every Democratic presidential candidate since the 1984 has won them. She was supposed to win Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Minnesota. Of all 5 states, she only won Minnesota and that was only by 40 thousand votes! Trump demolished the blue wall precisely because of this mass defection among so-called beer drinking Democrats, blue collar Democrats who never thought they could vote Republican, but could vote for Trump.
Now a fourth exodus that is happening is among what are being called ‘Wall Street Democrats’. CNBC has been following the big Wall Street donors to the Democratic Party, and see whom they have been putting their money behind. One thing that keeps coming up among these fat cat Democratic donors is that if Elizabeth Warren gets the nomination, they are sitting this election out, or even some have said that they are voting for Trump. Wall Street does not want Warren anywhere near them. The genius of Trump is that he has been able to implement an economic nationalism that both protects manufacturing jobs on the one hand and stimulates the markets on the other. Warren would actually be a disaster on both fronts, at least that is what the top donors to the Democrats feel. This is the fourth group that has the potential of walking away. Put that all together, with these four groups all walking away, and you have the makings of a disastrous 2020 for the Democrats. We shall see how this will all play out.
