CNN Panics Over ‘Political Earthquake’ in Calif. Ahead of Nat’l Red Tsunami

'If you’re a Republican running for re-election, or trying to unseat a Democrat, things are looking pretty good, right?'

(Pamela Cosel, Headline USA)  By late Tuesday, election returns in California will show whether the state’s radical leftists have made wrong steps in the eyes of the voters since the last election.

According to many political forecasters, there is a very good chance a giant red wave will hit the shores of the West Coast and reduce the blue that has held fast to its shore for decades.

The writing on the wall is so large, in fact, that even leftist media outlets can no longer ignore it.

In an conversation with CNN anchor Jake Tapper, the network’s senior data reporter, Harry Enten, said he believes Republicans will garner “historic gains” in November’s midterm elections, the Daily Wire reported.

“If you’re a Republican running for re-election, or trying to unseat a Democrat, things are looking pretty good, right?” Tapper asked Enten.

“I would say they’re looking good from the historical context,” Enten answered. “And guess what? Since 1938, the Republican two-point lead on the generic congressional ballot is the best position for Republicans at this point in any midterm cycle in over 80 years.”

Even during past red waves, such as the 1994 “Contract with America” that reined in then-President Bill Clinton and the more than 60-seat “shellacking” that then-President Barack Obama received in 2010, Republicans going into the election saw only a 1 point advantage in the generic ballot, the Daily Caller reported.

But in a separate analysis, CNN political analyst pointed to the factors in California’s primary alone that could suggest serious seismic activity.

The race for the mayor of Los Angeles is one of the most competitive, according to the L.A. Times.

City voters will choose among US Rep. Karen Bass, who was once on the shortlist for President Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate; wealthy developer Rick Caruso, a former Republican who still sits on the board of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation; and L.A. City Councilman Kevin de Leon.

In times of rampant crime, increasing homelessness in the city and soaring housing costs, Brownstein noted, voters fed up with conditions are likely to swing red, despite the city’s less than 15% Republican registration rate.

In San Francisco, voters will cast votes to recall (or not) its extreme-left district attorney, George Gascon. In January, a string of package thefts from freight trains that ran through downtown L.A. illustrated Gascon’s failure to deal with criminals and not ensure order in the city, not keeping the public safe.

Cases also continue to crop up in which he gives exceedingly light sentences to violent criminal offenders, such as a teen was given 5-7 months for nearly running over a mother and her 8-month-old child in a stolen car.

Gascon’s approach has been to not prosecute criminals but divert them to rehabilitation and treatment for mental health and substance abuse. For that, Gascon was sued by the union that represents L.A. district attorneys, according to CNN.

“I’m fed up,” said security manager and voter Paul Pulido, 63, a Republican. He told the L.A. Times he came out to vote for Caruso.

The fact that polls show President Joe Biden’s approval rating is now lower than that of former presidents Donald Trump and Jimmy Carter doesn’t help Democrats wishing to stay in office.

But in order for California to join the rest of the country in veering rightward, conservative candidates will have to overcome the rampant fraud enabled by the state’s patchwork of voting laws.

Every registered voter in California is mailed a ballot 30 days before Election Day. They can be returned by mail, dropped in any official voting box located in various places, or vote in person on June 7.

On May 10, a California woman found a postal service box with 104 completed, unopened mail-in ballots in East Hollywood. They were picked up at the woman’s home by the L.A. Registrar Dean Logan.
