Although Democrats still lead in state-wide voter registration, that margin has shriveled to under three percent. A lead that Jon Ralston of the Nevada Independent refers to as “unprecedented since the Reagan era.”
Nevada is trending along with the rest of the country. The Associated Press (AP) reports that more than one million voters switched their party affiliation to Republican with the most notable demographic shift coming from the suburban swing voters who favored Biden in 2020. According to their data analysis, record inflation, gas prices and fears that the country is headed the wrong direction are causing a mass exodus to the GOP.
This mass exodus to the GOP, according to numerous polls, is a direct consequence of the Biden economy, soaring inflation and gas prices. Today, inflation hit its highest rate in forty years, soaring to 9.1 percent. However, Nevada households are hit the hardest. The inflation rate, in May, was tracking at 13.5 percent when inflation was recorded at 8.6 percent. The annualized cost of Bidenflation per Nevada household was $8,774. According to today’s reports, inflation in Nevada is 14 percent.
As Bidenflation plagues Nevada households, polls reveal that the economy is on the top of the minds of voters with less than four months til the November midterm elections.
