Republikaners are well-known for a number of conservative values-related characteristics.

Among them are economic responsibility, a strong military, faith, constitutional rights, a smaller federal government, and a zero-tolerance approach to crime.
Republicans prefer to set clear boundaries and confront difficult subjects.
Not surprise, Republicans retain a big edge in the perceptions of Americans about the management of crime, particularly following the left’s massive defund the police initiative in 2020, during which Biden remained largely mute.
According to an April ABC/Washington Post survey, Republicans had a 12-point edge over Democrats.
“That’s a marked shift from last summer when Americans were about evenly divided on which party is better positioned to contend with crime,” according to the Washington Post.
If anybody believed that “defunding the police” was a good idea, they have undoubtedly reconsidered by now.
Last month’s recall of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin demonstrates voter discontent with the progressives’ approach to addressing crime.
Further south in Los Angeles, almost 700,000 individuals signed petitions to recall the district attorney of their county, George Gascón, citing his soft-on-crime policies.
Even in these places, which are clearly ruled by Democrats, the left has lost touch with the public’s perspective on crime and violence.
The Associated Press reported last month that Democrats are doing more than declaring that they will vote Republican in the upcoming election; they are actively switching their party allegiance.
According to the news organization’s analysis of voter registration data, “More than 1 million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year,”
“The previously unreported number reflects a phenomenon that is playing out in virtually every region of the country — Democratic and Republican states along with cities and small towns — in the period since President Joe Biden replaced former President Donald Trump,” the Associated Press stated.
It seems eyes are opening to the state of the country under Trump as opposed to the state of the country now.
The switch is most pronounced in the suburban counties outside of cities like Denver, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland.
“For example, in Lorain County, Ohio, just outside Cleveland, nearly every party switcher over the last year has gone Republican. That’s even as Democrats captured three-quarters of those changing parties in the same county during end of the Trump era,” according to the AP.
Fox News released its “Power Rankings” on Monday forecasting the GOP will retake the House of Representatives with at least seven seats to spare.
“With redistricting completed and the bulk of the primaries behind us, the Power Rankings model now reveals a clear advantage for the GOP in the House. With 218 seats required to take control, the GOP is forecast to take 225 seats to the Democrats’ 180 seats,” Fox News said.
The news outlet is marking 30 races as “toss-ups” meaning the Republican majority could be much greater.
On the flip side, even if the Democrats win every toss-up race, they will still be in the minority as things stand now.
On the Senate side, the outcome is still much more up in the air but favors a Republican takeover. The upper chamber is currently divided 50-50 between the parties.
Of the 34 seats up for election, 20 are in the solid red, likely red, or lean red categories.
“The GOP has to win only two of the five toss-up races to take control of the Senate, whereas the Democrats need to win four of those races just to reach a 50-seat ‘majority’ with the aid of Vice President Kamala Harris,” according to Fox.
The five toss-up states are Arizona, Georgia, New Hampshire, Nevada, and Pennsylvania.
A Gallup poll taken in April found concern over crime and violence at its highest level since 2016, with 53 percent saying that have a “great deal” of concern.
When combined with those who have a “fair amount” of concern, the number jumped to 80 percent.
Americans’ concern about crime and violence in the U.S. has edged up in the past year, and for the first time since 2016, a majority (53%) say they personally worry a “great deal” about crime.

One of the many American cities concerned about its crime rate is Cleveland, Ohio.
Citing Cleveland Police Department figures, NBC News reported the city had 179 murders in 2020, its most ever, followed by its second-most in 2021, at 165.
Erica Ingram — a lifelong Democrat, whose 24-year-old son was shot and killed in front of their Cleveland home in 2019 — said she is strongly leaning toward voting for Republicans this election cycle, Western Journal writes.

Ingram singled out Ohio Republican U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Vance as the candidate who will receive her vote.
She told NBC News he best reflects her views about the current state of affairs.

“I can see him having compassion as to where the Democrats don’t have no compassion,” she said. “They’re, like, weak. They don’t fight hard enough as to where the Republicans get up there and they pull out all stops.”
