States like California and Texas stood out among Democrats who had favorable views about socialism.

54 percent of California Democrats have favorable views of socialism, while 57 percent of Texas Democrats have favorable views of socialism.

Interestingly, both states have large immigration populations.

According to Pew Research, California has nearly 11 million foreign residents (27.2% of the population) and Texas has nearly 5 million foreign residents (16.9 percent of the population).

On the other hand, North Carolina and Tennessee Democrats were not as receptive towards socialism.

Only 48 percent of North Carolina voters and 47 percent of Tennessee voters view socialism favorably.

These two states only have immigration populations of 786,374 immigrants (7.7 percent of the population) and 331,868 immigrants (5 percent of the population), respectively.

Demographic shift is one of the most powerful issues in American politics.

For example, a recent Pew Research poll found that Hispanic voters have solidly leftist views on foundational political issues.

The majority of Hispanic voters (71%) believe the government should be more involved to solve problems,

Additionally, Hispanic voters are generally in favor of the U.S. government playing a stronger role in the healthcare sector. About seven-in-ten (71%) say it is the federal government’s responsibility to ensure health care coverage for all of Americans.

As far as gun ownership is concerned, seven-in-ten Hispanic voters (68%) believe gun control laws should be strengthened.

These results are consistent with post-1965 Immigration Act voting trends among migrants during the last 50 years.

The Republican Party will have to come to grip with these realities.

Migration has historically has come in waves.

There are either legislative or natural pauses in immigration and the U.S. is long overdue for a moratorium on mass migration. The good news is that the U.S. can look to its history for a previous example of immigration restriction in the Immigration Act of 1924.

We can only hope that the GOP dusts off its history books and take a page from this act.

Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020

Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.

Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued. 

According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued. 

Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”

The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”

Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.

Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.

2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
