Over the last two years, Americans have been hit hard by Bidenomics. Shortages, inflation, and then MORE inflation have been wreaking havoc on American families just trying to survive and thrive. The epicenter of American despair has been its big blue cities, with Democrat mayors and governors using residents like test subjects in some sort of mock political science experiment where the goal is to generate the worst results.
That’s why even in deep blue states like New York, a Republican candidate for governor, Rep. Lee Zeldin, has a chance at beating the state’s Governor, Kathy Hochul. You may remember Hochul as the Lt. Gov. who watched idly as former Gov. Andrew Cuomo went wild with his COVID emergency powers.
Unsurprisingly, many New Yorkers are unhappy with how their Democratic governors have been handling the state. In the New York Post, Michael Goodwin explains why so many are indicating they’ll be voting for Zeldin this year instead of Hochul. Goodwin writes:
A friend writes to say that his wife and “some of her staunchly D” female friends, all pro-choice suburbanites, are voting for Republican Lee Zeldin for governor.
A former colleague working in real estate volunteers that he’s backing Zeldin “because this isn’t the Democratic Party I signed up for.”
Another Dem, a former top New York official, writes: “For the first time in my life, I just voted the straight Republican ticket for New York state. The Democratic Party has lost touch with the people they are supposed to represent.”
These are the voices of a potential earthquake.
One by one and in small groups, formerly loyal Dems are coming to the conclusion that the party they were proud to belong to no longer shares their interests and values.
Many cite the left’s relentless assault on convention and standards, and the effort to silence disagreement. Every institution is either under attack or has capitulated to the woke mob, turning liberals into conservatives.
The working and middle classes in whose name this revolution is being carried out are suffering the most from its excesses and now they, too, demand relief. That many are voting Republican explains why a red wave is forming across the nation and in even the bluest of states.
Something has to give — and it could be Kathy Hochul’s job.
Even MSNBC’s Stephanie Rhule recently called out Hochul on New Yorkers’ lack of faith in her ability to make them feel safe. Watch the video below:
