In yet another sign of trouble for the Democratic Party, a third lawmaker has switched to the Republican Party in just one month, dealing a blow to President Biden’s already low approval ratings.
As President Biden continues to struggle with low approval ratings among key demographic groups, Democrats have faced another setback with the departure of a third state lawmaker in just one month.
State Rep. Jeremy LaCombe from Louisiana announced his switch to the Republican Party, following in the footsteps of Louisiana state Rep. Francis Thompson and North Carolina state Rep. Tricia Cotham. Both Thompson and Cotham’s switches gave Republicans a supermajority in their respective states.
In a recent CNN poll, President Biden’s approval ratings were at a near-record low among key demographic groups, including women, voters aged 45+, suburban and rural voters, and even Democratic men. The poll also showed that only a third of Americans believed Biden deserved to be re-elected in 2024.
As Democrats face mounting challenges and continued losses within their own ranks, the future of their party hangs in the balance.
The departure of three state lawmakers from the Democratic Party in just one month is a significant blow to the struggling party. With President Biden’s approval ratings at near-record lows and facing mounting criticism for his handling of multiple crises, Democrats are in danger of losing their grip on power.
Although it’s unclear what prompted LaCombe’s departure, his switch to the Republican Party is indicative of the growing dissatisfaction among Democrats with their own party. Across the country, voters are increasingly disillusioned with the policies of the left and the direction in which their party is headed.
Furthermore, the supermajorities gained by Republicans in Louisiana and North Carolina signal that the tide may be turning against the Democrats at the state level as well. With more and more lawmakers defecting to the Republican Party, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the Democratic Party is in trouble.
As the country continues to face the fallout from the Virusc, rising inflation, and other pressing issues, the American people are looking for leadership that can guide them through these difficult times. Unfortunately for the Democrats, they appear to be falling short of the mark.
The departure of three state lawmakers from the Democratic Party in just one month is a worrying sign for the struggling party. With President Biden’s approval ratings at record lows and facing mounting criticism for his handling of multiple crises, Democrats are in danger of losing their grip on power. As more and more lawmakers defect to the Republican Party, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the Democrats’ policies and direction are not resonating with the American people. The future of the Democratic Party is uncertain, and it remains to be seen whether they can regain the support of the American people and turn the tide in their favor. For now, the Republican Party appears to be gaining ground, and the Democrats are left to ponder what went wrong.
