Within the span of one month, Democrats were dealt a massive blow within their ranks as three members abruptly left the party.
In the words of President Donald Trump, the Democrats have become known as the party mostly comprised of “socialists and communists who are destroying the country” through their incompetence and failure to uphold the rule of law, particularly at the southern border.

In North Carolina, Republicans also gained another supermajority as state Rep. Tricia Cotham switched parties from Democrat to Republican.
Lastly, Louisiana state Rep. Jeremy LaCombe recently announced he had left the Democratic Party and would be registering as a Republican.
It appears that lawmakers are quickly trying to distance themselves from the disaster of the Democrat Party as polls show Biden faces a near-record low approval rating.
Democrats will "villainize anyone who has free thought, free judgement, has solutions," says North Carolina State Rep Tricia Cotham after switching parties.

In key demographic groups, such as women and Democratic men, many Americans do not approve with Biden’s job performance.
Biden received a low mark of 41% approval among suburban women, a Fox News poll found.
Only a third of Americans believe Biden deserves to be re-elected in 2024, the poll states.
Miserable CNN reporters visibly SHOCKED when forced to read new poll showing less than 33% of Americans think Joe Biden should be reelected:
“The numbers are beyond sobering for President Biden.”

Even left-leaning CNN is struggling to defend President Joe Biden amid sinking poll numbers. Only one-third of Americans say Biden should serve a second term in the White House, according to a CNN poll.
A staggering 67% of those who took the poll said Biden doesn’t deserve re-election in 2024.
CNN’s John King said, “The numbers are beyond sobering for President Biden.” Only 26% of Americans under 35 say Biden deserves a second term.
More on this story via Western Journal:
While Biden maintains a mediocre overall approval rating of 42% in the poll, the president significantly underperforms in his approval ratings when it comes to key political issues such as immigration (35%) and the economy (37%).
Even most Democrats want to see their party select an alternate nominee.
A majority of Democrats or Democrat-leaning independents, 54%, want someone other than Biden, according to the poll.
However, members of the party can’t seem to come up with a possible alternative to the career politician.
No other Democrat merited the support of more than 5% of Democratic voters in the poll, potentially leaving the party stuck with its incumbent president.
ABC's Jonathan Karl suggests it might be "better for [Biden] not to be running re-election."
