Republicans make huge gains among Black and Hispanic voters as Dems fear ‘paradigm shift’: poll

Republicans have made huge gains among black and Hispanic voters since the 2018 and 2020 elections, according to a new Wall Street Journal poll.

GOP candidates garnered just 8% support from black voters in the 2018 midterm election, and former President Donald Trump received the same 8% support in 2020. Among Latinos, Democrats had a 31% lead over Republicans in 2018 and 28% leadership in 2020. Today, however, 17% of black voters say they support Republicans, and Democrat leadership among Latinos is up, according to the WSJ only 5 points shrunk.

“I think this could be a paradigm-shifting election where Republicans not only gain a foothold with the Latino voice, but now with the African American voice,” John Anzalone, who served as President Biden’s top pollster of 2020 said the outlet.

Newfound support among US minority groups is one of the reasons Republicans are expected to take over the House of Representatives, if not the Senate, on Election Day.

President Biden and the Democrats have pinned their midterm election hopes on abortion and portrayed Republicans as enemies of democracy while Republicans have campaigned against inflation, the economy and crime.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., is confident Republicans will retake the House of Representatives Tuesday after four years of Democratic control. Polls concur with his assessment, although the size of the likely Republican majority remains a matter of debate.

“The one thing to always remember is that majorities aren’t given — they’re earned,” McCarthy told Fox News Digital last week. “We don’t take anything for granted, but I feel good about the quality of the candidates we have from Rhode Island to New Hampshire to Connecticut to Oregon to Washington to Arizona to California.”

“There’s no place we can’t compete and that’s exciting,” he added.
