In this post, I wrote about how Republicans won 2 special elections to fill empty congressional seats. Mike Garcia flipped the empty seat in California while Tom Tiffany held Sean Duffy’s seat in Wisconsin. This morning, I’m writing about something should scare the daylights out of Democrats. I’m writing about the city council races in Staunton, Virginia.

It isn’t just that Republicans swept the races. It’s the fashion in which they won that should frighten Democrats. According to the article, “The last Staunton election for all four members was in 2016 in which fewer than 7,000 votes were cast.” That was then. This is now:

More than 17,000 votes were cast in the election in which all four council members were vying to protect their seats.

That’s just the start of it. This isn’t what people were expecting:

Noting the eye-popping voter turnout, Graham credited Democrats for getting more votes than they did in the last cycle. However, Republican voters left no chance for defeat, with a turnout “more akin to, not quite a presidential year, but approaching gubernatorial their rivals at polls,” according to Graham.

DC Republicans are worried about a blue sweep this November. It’s undisputed that there will be some tough fights to maintain control of the Senate and take away Pelosi’s Speaker Gavel, though I’m not quite as worried about Joe Biden’s vice president running the nation. While the polls show one thing, the vote totals say another thing. The question I’d ask the DC GOP geniuses is this: does anyone think that Gov. Whitmer’s executive actions and Gov. Wolf’s corruption in Pennsylvania will cause GOP turnout to increase or increase by orders of magnitude?

Waves happen when people are upset, not when they’re happy. While it still remains to be seen how deep the frustration goes, it’s clear that the frustration is with the Democrat governors, not with President Trump. Truckers are rallying in front of the White House:

These protesters aren’t rallying in Gov. Whitmer’s favor:

This video is brief but powerful:

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that these events aren’t working in the Democrats’ favor. These people aren’t mad as hell. They’re downright pissed and they aren’t taking it anymore. Whenever Democrats retake control, they overstep their mandate by orders of magnitude. It’s as predictable as the sun rising in the east. This video is inspiring and infuriating:

Watch the entire thing. It’s worth it. PS- There weren’t any undecideds at that protest/rally. I don’t have as much data as I’d like but the trend is clearly in one direction. HINT: it isn’t pointing in the direction of a blue wave.
