Good Question: What Do the Locals Think?

ladies island —A zoning variance to accommodate a drive-thru shop on Sea Island Parkway, such as Dunkin’ Donuts, was in front of the County Zoning Board of Appeals … again … last week.

The third time did not prove to be an attraction for developer Graham Trask, who was asked to come back with further site plans for his project.

But the ZBOA discussion asked one of the board members an interesting question: “What do the ‘locals’ think of the project?”

The board has heard from many residents opposing the project as it will generate traffic. But John Chemslak of Beaufort said he was interested in “come here” versus “come here”.

Ironically, one of those who spoke out against the project was Mayor Stephen Murray, a third-generation Beaufortian.

You wonder how long you have to “stay here” before your opinion counts.

Port Royal focused on Ribot Road

Port Royal – from Burger King to the Bridge. This is practically Mayor Joe DeVito’s rally since he was elected in 2019.

Economic development along Ribot Road, from Burger King on Mossy Oaks Road to the Paris Island Bridge from the city limits, has been rising to the top of the mayor and town council’s priority list, now that the port sale of Port Royal property is complete and development is expected to begin.

The council has formed a steering committee to plan development along the corridor with 303 Associates and Dick Stewart, who has purchased several properties in the area.

It is in the process of reviving its Economic Development Board, again with Dick Stewart as one of the board’s applicants.

The city is working with the SC Department of Transportation for ways to slow traffic on Woods Bridge, particularly on SC 802, and to develop an alternative route without directing motorists through residential neighborhoods.

Recent talks between the city and Beaufort city officials indicated support for expanding the Ribot Road study to Boundary Street, although Beaufort Mayor Stephen Murray insisted that the city’s focus is on stormtrooper projects for now as they are in the Point neighborhood. and begin working with Carteret. ,

With the availability of federal infrastructure money, elected officials are thinking the time may be right to move to money.

The third bridge is not a new idea but the one that doesn’t go away

LADIES ISLAND — Retired building contractor and fellow rebel-raiser Beekman Webb brought this back with his column in The Island News last week, suggesting city officials to think seriously and start rethinking — for Ladies Island. About another bridge.

For those who are relatively new to the region and are not aware of the history of the discussions going on for at least the past 40 years, Webb, who has been here longer than many of us, has written down history. About the debate of the third bridge outlined.

While those new residents may be wondering “why isn’t something being done,” rest assured that there has been a lot of discussion at both the municipal and county levels at cocktail parties and community public hearings. But while those discussions have taken place, residents have continued to flock to the shore, heading to Ladies Island and St. Helena, Harbour, Datav and Fripp, all reached by bridges.

More houses are being built.

It was also evident in the 1980s with the addition of a second bridge, the McTeer Bridge, and the Woods Memorial Bridge being towed to carry the daily traffic load.

County traffic planners and consultants are now looking for solutions to at least slow down traffic, especially on the McTeer Bridge, where the number of speed-related car accidents continues to rise.

And with all the new construction on the Ladies Island side of Woods Bridge, especially the Whitehall development already underway, it’s clear to anyone that traffic congestion is about to get worse.

Webb’s efforts to re-hash a third bridge option – a connector between Bellamy’s Curve and Ladies Island that was deemed less invasive in 2011 than three other potential sites in a previous study – are based, at least in part, on Facebook. There wasn’t much debate. Post where island news can be found.

Perhaps his comments were prompted by Mayor Stephen Murray’s recent comments, during discussion of the city’s updated comprehensive development plan, that there will be no further discussion of additional bridges at this point.

Murray may have a point. We may have reached that “paralysis by analysis” point and, unless a further development policy is adopted, which no one has advocated until recently, efforts to improve traffic flow will be pushed back to federal or state programs. , should be linked to the funds available through infrastructure funding. or special sales tax.

Want road improvements? must have money

BEAUFORT — The county council’s announcement last week to go after another sales tax referendum in November may have been a bit abrupt considering its substantial disapproval of last November’s idea, but the body of 11 decided to go full steam ahead Is.

County elected officials agreed to set up an advisory panel to consider the idea, including how many projects should be put on the list, how much funding would be needed, and whether it should be presented to voters this year.

County Council President Joe Passiment said by the middle of the month he intends to have a panel with 11 council members as well as a nominee for the committee for each of the five municipalities.

Although 73 percent of voters rejected the sales tax referendum last year, when only 14 percent of voters even bothered to vote, watch to see how it develops if you want to see road improvements.

Idaho Supreme Court temporarily blocks new abortion law ...

09-04-2022 · 1 day ago · The Idaho Supreme Court has temporarily blocked a new state law that would ban abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy and allow it to be enforced through lawsuits.

09-04-2022

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Supreme Court on Friday temporarily blocked a new state law that would ban abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy and allow the law to be enforced through lawsuits.

Idaho last month had become the first state to enact legislation modeled after the Texas statute banning abortions after about six weeks. The ruling from Idaho’s high court in a lawsuit brought by Planned Parenthood means the new law won’t go into effect as planned on April 22.

The state Supreme Court instructed both sides to file further briefs as it considers the case before its ultimate decision.

Republican Gov. Brad Little last month signed into law the measure that would’ve allowed people who would have been family members to sue doctors who perform abortions after cardiac activity is detected in embryos. But when he signed it, Little said he had concerns about whether the law was constitutional.

The law would allow the father, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles of a “preborn child” to each sue an abortion provider for a minimum of ,000 in damages within four years after the abortion. Rapists can’t file a lawsuit under the law, but a rapist’s relatives could.

Planned Parenthood of Great Northwest, Hawaii, Alaska, Indiana and Kentucky had called the law unconstitutional.

“We are thrilled that abortion will remain accessible in the state for now, but our fight to ensure that Idahoans can fully access their constitutionally protected rights is far from over,” Rebecca Gibron, interim CEO of Planned Parenthood Great Northwest, Hawaii, Alaska, Indiana and Kentucky, said in a statement after Friday’s court action.

The decision comes amid a nationwide fight over access to abortion. The U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative majority signaled willingness in a Mississippi case to severely erode or even strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that made abortion legal nationwide until a baby can survive outside the womb. Numerous states with Republican majorities are poised to follow the strictest interpretation of the ruling.

If Roe is overturned, 26 states are certain or likely to quickly ban abortion, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a think tank that supports abortion rights.

The Idaho law was modeled after a Texas law that the U.S. Supreme Court has allowed to remain in place until a court challenge is decided on its merits. The Texas law allows people to enforce the law in place of state officials who normally would do so. The Texas law authorizes lawsuits against clinics, doctors and anyone who “aids or abets” an abortion that is not permitted by law.

Backers had said the law is Idaho’s best opportunity to severely restrict abortions in the state after years of trying.

When he signed the bill, Idaho’s governor noted his concerns with the legislation.

“Deputizing private citizens to levy hefty monetary fines on the exercise of a disfavored but judicially recognized constitutional right for the purpose of evading court review undermines our constitutional form of government and weakens our collective liberties,” Little wrote.

He said that he worried some states might use the same approach to limit gun rights.

The Attorney General’s office, representing the state, had said the case should start in the state’s district courts, working its way up to the high court.

Planned Parenthood’s attorneys balked.

“In the State’s apparent view, the more unconstitutional the law, the less appropriate for extraordinary relief. That gets things backwards: The state should not be able to evade this Court’s review by violating multiple provisions of the Idaho Constitution instead of just one.”

Editorial: The Hunter Biden train wreck rolls over New ...

03-04-2022 · Both the New York Times and Washington Post had to get down in the dirt and admit Hunter Biden is a train wreck. And that's putting it as nicely as allowed in a …

03-04-2022

The Associated Press runs a weekly feature titled “Not Real News: A Look at What Didn’t Happen.” It’s a smug feature that sets a dangerous precedent.

The report attempts to debunk junk swirling around on social media. But it’s easier to knock things down than it is to dig them up. Most journalists tend to focus on the latter. Let’s hope that never changes.

That’s why this week’s admission by the New York Times and Washington Post is so telling. Both esteemed arbiters of all that’s proper to print in a polite society had to get down in the dirt and admit Hunter Biden is a train wreck. And that’s putting it as nicely as allowed in a family newspaper.

The Washington Post — in an insulting headline — blasted Friday: “Here’s how The Post analyzed Hunter Biden’s laptop.” Yes, after the New York Post broke the story a year and a half ago. The DC paper has also offered up an explainer, for readers who need help wondering why this entire topic was treated as dog poop by so many for so long.

In case we forgot to mention, Hunter Biden is the son of President Biden.

The Times and Post should be ashamed. They do admit the FBI has Hunter Biden’s MacBook and the agency is investigating whether he properly reported income from business dealings.

The Washington Post states some verified emails involved a deal Hunter Biden pursued with the CEFC China Energy conglomerate for which he was paid nearly million. Other verified emails related to his work for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, for which Hunter Biden was paid as much as ,333 or a month, or million a year, the New York Post states.

What does this tell us?

Partisan politics is alive and well inside the newsrooms of America’s media outlets. The New York Post stuck to their Hunter Biden story and has been vindicated.

The New York Post tells they “exclusively revealed the existence of Hunter Biden’s emails after being given a copy of the hard drive from a damaged MacBook Pro laptop that the owner of a repair shop in the Biden family’s hometown of Wilmington, Del., said was dropped off in April 2019 and never retrieved.”

The AP, deep down in a political story, is reporting some Republicans are already agitating for partisan investigations of figures like Dr. Anthony Fauci and President Biden’s son, Hunter. That, they say, will be wedge issues that could land the GOP back in control of Congress.

Here’s how we see all this. A free press must remain vigilant and non-partisan while hunting for lies, crimes, abuse and neglect while calling out politicians and pundits who try to quash a good story just because it doesn’t fit the narrative of the prevailing political winds.

The New York Times and Washington Post can be great newspapers. They sometimes do meaningful work. They just need to get out of their own way.

The AP needs to stop trying to be the voice of America and just chase down the news. If a tweet or post somewhere in the cesspool of trolls and scam artists on the web does warrant coverage, then have at it. But a running feature of every little oddity that fires up TikTok is just a waste of time.

There’s a reason why Boston Herald readers pick up this paper. We’re not afraid to call out those who are out to hurt others — even if it does go against the tide. If you have a story you want covered, just let us know. We do chase down all tips sent to [email protected] We print the real ones we dig up.

Alaska Islands May Be Part of a Single, Massive Volcano

A trail of volcanic islands off the coast of southern Alaska may actually be part of a single giant caldera, according to evidence being presented next week at the American Geophysical Union’s fall meeting. If so, it’s possible the newly revealed volcanic giant once erupted in a blast large enough to dwarf the cataclysmic 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.

A small group of volcanic islands in Alaska’s Aleutian chain might be part of a single, undiscovered giant volcano, say scientists presenting the findings at AGU’s Fall Meeting 2020. If the researchers’ suspicions are correct, the newfound volcanic caldera would belong to the same category of volcanoes as the Yellowstone Caldera and other volcanoes that have had super-eruptions with severe global consequences.The Islands of the Four Mountains in the central Aleutians is a tight group of six stratovolcanoes named Carlisle, Cleveland, Herbert, Kagamil, Tana and Uliaga. Stratovolcanoes are what most people envision when they think of a volcano: a steep conical mountain with a banner of clouds and ash waving at the summit. They can have powerful eruptions, like that of Mount St. Helens in 1980, but these are dwarfed by far less frequent caldera-forming eruptions.Researchers from a variety of institutions and disciplines have been studying Mount Cleveland, the most active volcano of the group, trying to understand the nature of the Islands of the Four Mountains. They have gathered multiple pieces of evidence showing that the islands could belong to one interconnected caldera.Unlike stratovolcanoes, which tend to tap small- to modestly-sized reservoirs of magma, a caldera is created by tapping a huge reservoir in the Earth’s crust. When the reservoir’s pressure exceeds the strength of the crust, gigantic amounts of lava and ash are released in a catastrophic episode of eruption.Caldera-forming eruptions are the most explosive volcanic eruptions on Earth and they often have had global effects. The ash and gas they put into the atmosphere can affect Earth’s climate and trigger social upheaval. For example, the eruption of nearby Okmok volcano in the year BCE 43 has been recently implicated in the disruption of the Roman Republic. The proposed caldera underlying the Islands of the Four Mountains would be even larger than Okmok. If confirmed, it would become the first in the Aleutians that is hidden underwater, said Diana Roman of the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C., co-author of the study.“We’ve been scraping under the couch cushions for data,” said Roman, referring to the difficulty of studying such a remote place. “But everything we look at lines up with a caldera in this region.”Despite all these signs, Roman along with John Power, a researcher with the U.S. Geological Survey at the Alaska Volcano Observatory and the study’s lead author, maintain that the existence of the caldera is not by any means proven. To do that the study team will need to return to the islands and gather more direct evidence to fully test their hypothesis.“Our hope is to return to the Islands of Four Mountains and look more closely at the seafloor, study the volcanic rocks in greater detail, collect more seismic and gravity data, and sample many more of the geothermal areas,” Roman said.The caldera hypothesis might also help explain the frequent explosive activity seen at Mount Cleveland, Roman said. Mount Cleveland is arguably the most active volcano in  North America for at least the last 20 years. It has produced ash clouds as high as 15,000 and 30,000 feet above sea level. These eruptions pose hazards to aircraft traveling the busy air routes between North America and Asia.

“It does potentially help us understand what makes Cleveland so active,” said Power, who will present the work. “It can also help us understand what type of eruptions to expect in the future and better prepare for their hazards.”

If you love the California sushi roll, you might want to try the Boston roll sushi as both are made with almost similar ingredients.

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links, meaning we may earn a commission when you buy through our links, at no cost to you. Read more: Affiliate Disclaimer.

The main difference between the two rolls lies in their fillings, whereby the Boston roll sushi uses cooked shrimp instead of the crabmeat used in the California roll.

The Boston roll is one of the easiest-to-cook sushi rolls that you can effortlessly prepare at home with a few ingredients.

It doesn’t use raw fish, making it a delicious and safe dish for anyone, even pregnant women.

Now, if you are wondering how to make a perfect Boston roll sushi at home, you’ve just landed on the right page.

Here, I provide a detailed yet easy recipe for Boston roll sushi you should try.

Getting the Right Ingredients

For any recipe, the ingredients you have can make or break your meal. This seems to be very true when it comes to preparing Boston roll sushi at home.

So, let’s take a look at each of the required ingredients to ensure that you end up with a delicious meal.

Preparing the Rice

The type of rice you use when making the Boston roll sushi will determine how the meal will taste. If you use low-quality rice, don’t expect great results.

If you don’t want your Boston roll to suffer, find high-quality short-grain rice, specifically classified as sushi rice.

To cook the sushi rice best for the roll, you’ll need less water than you usually use for regular plain rice. You can use one cup of water for each cup of rice.

After cooking the sushi rice, it’s important to cool it in a bowl for a few minutes.

When the rice is hot, you need to add some rice vinegar and stir to mix well. You can also use white wine vinegar and a pinch of salt if you forgot to buy the rice vinegar, then add three pinches of white sugar.

Poached Shrimp

Shrimp is an essential ingredient in this recipe, and so you want to prepare it well. You also want to ensure that you use fresh shrimp to get the best results.

Poaching the shrimp by yourself is the best way to ensure that it’s fresh and safe for the recipe. You can simmer it for about 3 to 5 minutes to get the best results.

If you are not a fan of poached seafood, you can fry the shrimp tempura-style to ensure that you get an extra crunchy texture to your sushi roll.

Veggies

The main veggies used in Boston roll sushi are avocado and cucumber. It’s essential to choose the ripest avocado for a tasty roll.

A ripe avocado will often have a slightly changed color, and it’s easy to remove the small stem on the upper part. If you find it hard to remove the stem, your avocado is probably not ripe.

You also want to ensure that you use a fresh cucumber that feels firm.

Nori Sheets

Nori sheets come at different prices, and the best for you will depend on your budget. However, it’s essential to choose the middle-priced options as they offer the best value.

Along with the price, it’s also vital to consider the color, check for any spot holes as even the high-end Nori can eventually degrade.

The best Nori sheet should have a shiny sheen with umami flavor for some natural sweetness. Don’t go for cheap Nori with a fishy smell.

How to Make Boston Roll Sushi: Step by Step Guide

Step 1: Prepare the Veggies

Slice the avocado and the cucumber into small long pieces similar to the matchsticks and remove the cucumber seeds, if desired.

Step 2: Cook the Sushi Rice

Cook high-quality sushi rice that will not deteriorate even after rolling.

Use a slightly lower amount of water than you use during regular cooking. Also, you shouldn’t leave your rice to overcook.

Once it starts looking fluffy, remove it from the heat source and allow it to cool slightly. Add sushi vinegar to the rice and stir thoroughly.

Step 3: Pouch the Shrimp

This process is actually simpler than it sounds. First, you need to bring water to boil in a pot, add salt, and any other seasoning of your preferences.

As the water is boiling, add the shrimps, cover the cooking pot and remove it from the heat source.

Allow them to stand for up to 5 minutes before dipping them into a bowl of ice water to halt the cooking process. Then drain, peel and remove the tails from the shrimps.

Step 4: Prepare the Sushi Roll

Stretch out the bamboo mat on the table and spread the plastic paper on its surface to ensure that your sticky sushi rice doesn’t stick on the mat. This will also keep the mat clean.

Cut the nori sheet into two, take a half of it, and lay it on top of the bamboo mat.

The shining face of the nori seaweed sheet should be the one in contact with the mat.

Measure about three-quarter cup rice and pour it evenly on the nori sheet surface.

Flip the nori sheet gently so that the rice lies at the bottom of the sheet.

Place the avocado slices, shrimps, and cucumbers on the nori sheets.

Place your thumbs under the mat and lift carefully before you start folding the sushi.

Fold the sushi roll and be careful not to roll the mat in it.

Take away the plastic foil and mat, then cover the sushi with tobiko.

Cover the sushi once more with plastic foil and the mat to ensure that the ingredients stick together.

Repeat the above process with the unused ingredients to make more sushi rolls.

Slice the Boston roll, serve, and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions by Users

Q: What is a Boston Sushi Roll?

A: Boston roll sushi is a type of rolled sushi prepared by rolling various ingredients in a nori sheet and seasoned rice. It uses poached shrimp rather than imitation crab or raw fish used in the Californian roll.

In this sushi roll, seasoned rice is used on the outside while nori sheet is on the inside, then garnished with orange tobiko or masago.

If you don’t like the raw fish used in a typically rolled sushi, the Boston roll sushi is an excellent option as it uses tasty cooked shrimp. It also uses cucumber and avocado that makes it more delicious.

Boston sushi roll is an adaptation of the original Japanese rolled sushi that leverages the shrimp fishery in the Boston region.

Q: What is the Difference Between Boston Roll Philadelphia Roll?

A: The difference between the Boston roll and Philadelphia roll lies in their filling.

Boston roll uses veggies, poached shrimp, and rice, while Philadelphia roll uses smoked salmon, rice, cream cheese, and veggies. Some people also use fried shrimp in Boston roll to achieve a crunchy texture.

Q: Tobiko Substitutes – Is It Possible?

A: Yes, it’s possible to change the tobiko with other substitutes like masago, which is smaller and cheaper.

However, I wouldn’t recommend this to someone looking for the authentic taste and texture of the Boston roll sushi.

While masago has a similar flavor to that of tobiko, it doesn’t have that crunchiness you get from tobiko.

Q: How Do You Roll Sushi Without a Roller?

Rolling sushi is an art that requires you to have the right tools. In most cases, people use bamboo or silicone mats to roll the sushi.

These sushi mats make it easy to roll the ingredients and enable them to stick together.

But if you don’t have a special sushi roller, you can also roll the ingredients with your hands on the countertop using a plastic foil and a hand towel.

You’ll need to lay the towel on a flat surface like the countertop and layer it with plastic foil.

After preparing the sushi on the plastic foil, as usual, lift the edge of the Nori and start rolling it horizontally while applying more pressure to make a tube shape.

27-03-2022

A wide range of food falls into the general classification that we Americans call Boston Sushi Roll . The most famous makizushi is a long roll comprising rice, nori, and filling, cut into 6-8 pieces. Nigeria ordinarily comprises of just a single piece of crude fish per piece of rice. Sushi is only a piece of crude fish

Makizushi is by and large isolated into two sorts. boston sushi roll Photomaki, or ‘fat sushi,’ comprises a layer of light outwardly, then sticky rice, then something like two different fillings in the center. For the most part, Hosomaki, or ‘flimsy maki comprises of just a single fixing in the center, normally a piece of crude fish, even though what can utilize vegetables and natural products. Assuming that the light is wrapped inside the roll instead of showing it outwardly, Oramki or Mickey is within. What did that first because the Americans could have done without seeing the go-ahead external the Boston Sushi Roll ?

The most widely recognized maki rolls have arisen, particularly to make the Western sense of taste and food engaging and fulfilling. These are not viewed as, in fact, genuine Japanese sushi, yet they are extremely well known and can be exceptionally delectable.

California Boston Sushi Roll

The California roll is the most widely recognized and ‘western’ formula for maki rolls. California rolls are generally produced from back to front and contain impersonation shrimp, cucumber, and avocado. The outside of the roll is, in some cases, covered with tobacco or flying fish. The California roll is well known for being viewed as a ‘no-risk’ sushi containing no crude fish. It came from a Japanese sushi culinary specialist in Los Angeles in the 1970s who viewed avocado oil plans as an ideal substitute for crude fish, the first formula for which was looked for. The credit for spreading sushi’s fame in the United States goes to the California Roll.

A typical kind of California roll is the Boston roll. In the Boston Sushi Roll , the meat of the fake shrimp is supplanted by chased shrimp. Cucumber, avocado, rice, and nori continue as before. Frequently, the zesty sauce is added to the Boston roll or the top roll.

A hot prawn roll is a variety of regular sushi liked by Western locks. It utilizes poached shrimp like the Boston Roll. However, the shrimp is cleaved rather than entirety. The fiery sauce is required now, and avocado has been supplanted with slashed scallions. Fiery prawn roll is generally made as an external coarse roll; however, it can likewise be moved as a hand roll of boat roll. On this event, it is finished off with finely hacked MUGA.

Maki is probably the simplest kind of sushi to make fish rolls. In Japanese, it is called Tekimaki. It comprises sushi rice, nori, and sashimi-grade fish (crude fish). Fish rolls are customarily thickened or dispersed, contingent upon inclination.

Explosive rolls are not the same as conventional fish rolls. In sushi combination, explosive alludes to something zesty. Explosive rolls are fish rolls sprinkled with zesty mayonnaise. The mayonnaise is then ignited with the gourmet expert’s electric lamp.

Fiery fish rolls are somewhat less fundamental than conventional fish rolls. It is made with fish carvings in a fiery fish blend rather than fish pieces. Fiery fish is made with fish managing, scallops, bean stew oil, and some Japanese mayonnaise. The cream can likewise be added to cleaved fish to make it reliably luxurious. It is then blended with cucumber parts to make a standard hot fish roll. It is generally moved as an external thick roll.

The Tijuana roll is introduced as a slight external roll. It comprises finely hacked yellow fish and slashed jalapeno peppers. It needn’t bother with any bourbon because jumping is now fiery.

The bug roll specifically is a bizarre-looking sushi roll that is moved without help from anyone else with tempura singed delicate shell shrimp. It is generally carried out externally as a thick roll where the legs stick.

The Michigan Roll is a variety of the standard hot fish roll, in which crude hot sauces and avocados are dissolved to adjust the heat of the fish. It is generally moved as an external thick roll.

Notwithstanding maki rolls, one more typical kind of sushi is nigiri sushi. Nigiri sushi doesn’t constantly have light, as maki rolls do, and normally sushi comprises a piece of crude fish on a chunk of rice. Who can utilize various sauces or fixings, yet it is fundamentally only a kind of crude fish and sushi rice.

How Many Registered Democrats And Republicans In Usa

04-10-2021 · Republicans and democrats are the dominant political parties in the united states of america. But today, a survey by ballot access shows there are more registered independents than republicans, perhaps a sign that political parties. According to the register, there are now 547,458 registered democrats versus 547,369 registered republicans.

In Battleground States, Newly Registered Democrats Are Outnumbering Newly Registered Republicans

Altogether, there are 31 states with party registration; in the others, such as Virginia, voters register without reference to party. In 19 states and the District, there are more registered Democrats than Republicans. In 12 states, there are more registered Republicans than Democrats. In aggregate, 40% of all voters in party registration states are Democrats, 29% are Republicans, and 28% are independents. Nationally, the Democratic advantage in the party registration states approaches 12 million.

Are There More Democrats Than Republicans In The United States

I have been thinking about the Democratic Party and whether or not its members are more numerous than the opposing faction.

Evidence to suggest this is the case:

  • This party is expected to win the popular vote for president seven out of eight times since 1992. Please donât say âthis hasnât happened yetâ. If this bothers you, say 6 out of 7.
  • The party has received 51.9 percent of the votes cast in presidential elections from 1992 to 2016 for it or its opponent, the Republican Party. This shows that 2012 was the mean election in popular vote as of 2016.
  • Party registration in states that register by party says this same thing.
  • Trumpâs approval has not gone above 50 percent ever as president on 538.
  • A plurality of Americans consistently supported impeachment by 2 to 5 points while it was happening.
  • This suggests that the partisan lean the American electorate is about D 4. I believe that it might be closer to D 5 now for various reasons and the fact that 2012 was the mean result. This can get a little bit fuzzy because of independents.

    If we look at opinion polling, Gallup has collated party affiliation polls back to 2004. The most recent poll at the time of writing gives a D 11 advantage. Looking just at the net Republican/Democrat advantage, ignoring Independents, we can create the graph below â with positive percentages representing a Democrat lead, and negative percentages representing a Republican lead.

    To give a theoretical perspective on this:

  • Ballot Access News

Religious Affiliation And Party Identification

White evangelical Protestants remain one of the most reliably Republican groups of voters, and the GOPs advantage among this segment of the population has continued to grow in recent years: 77% of white evangelical voters lean toward or identify with the Republican Party, while just 18% have a Democratic orientation.

White mainline Protestant voters are more divided in their political identities. As has been the case for the last several years, a narrow majority affiliates with or leans to the GOP, while 41% lean toward or identify with the Democratic Party.

Black Protestant voters remain solidly Democratic in their partisan loyalties. Almost nine-in-ten lean toward or identify with the Democratic Party.

Overall, Catholic voters are roughly evenly split between the share who identify with or lean to the Republican and Democratic parties. But white Catholics and Hispanic Catholics diverge politically.

White Catholic voters now are more Republican than Democratic . While the partisan balance among white Catholic voters is little changed in recent years, this group was more evenly divided in their partisan loyalties about a decade ago.

Hispanic Catholics, who represent a growing share of the Catholic population in the U.S., are substantially more Democratic in their orientation .

While Mormon voters remain a solidly Republican group , in recent years Mormons have been less likely to identify as Republican than in the past.

Republicans And Democrats After The Civil War

Its true that many of the first Ku Klux Klan members were Democrats. Its also true that the early Democratic Party opposed civil rights. But theres more to it.

The Civil War-era GOP wasnt that into civil rights. They were more interested in punishing the South for seceding, and monopolizing the new black vote.

In any event, by the 1890s, Republicans had begun todistance themselvesfrom civil rights.

The Republican Party Was Founded To Halt Slavery

Before you talk about whether the republicans and democrats switched platforms, you must understand their early positions. The Republican Party formed in 1854 in Exeter, New Hampshire. The Republican Partys main purpose was to stop or halt the expansion of slavery in the United States.

During the 1860s, Republicans dominated the Northern states. They planned an ambitious expansion of federal power, helping to fund the transcontinental railroad, the state university system and the settlement of the West by homesteaders, and instating a national currency and protective tariff. Democrats, who dominated the South, opposed these measures. Alexander Hamilton would be very proud. After the Civil War, Republicans passed laws that granted additional protections for African Americans. Southern Democrats largely opposed these expansions of power.

In Texas, voters dont register by party affiliation like many other states, making it unclear exactly how many Republican or Democratic voters are in the state.

But about one-third of the 1.3 million new voters since November 2018 come from three counties: Harris, Travis and Bexar all deeply bluesince 2016.

Harris and Bexar being at the top of the list doesnt surprise Antonio Arellano, who is the leader of Jolt, a voter advocacy group focused on registering young Latino voters and getting them involved in politics. He said his group has been on the ground in those two counties.

While the coronavirus made registration drives impossible in traditional locations such as libraries, county fairs and large events, younger voters can still be found with direct messages on social media, text messages and digital ads. The virus hasnt affected those efforts at all.

We harness culture, art and technology to get it done, Arellano said.

The South And The House Go Republican

I think we just delivered the South to the Republican Party for a long time to come, President Johnson said shortly after signing the Civil Rights Act, according to his aide . And indeed, Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina switched his party affiliation from Democratic to Republican specifically for this reason.

Yet party loyalties take a long time to shake off, and the shift of white Southerners from being solid Democrats to solid Republicans was in reality more gradual.

And while race played an important role in this shift, other issues played roles too. White evangelical Christians became newly mobilized to oppose abortion and take stands on other culture war issues, and felt more at home with the conservative party. There was that suspicion of big government and lack of union organization that permeated the region. And talented politicians like Ronald Reagan promised to defend traditional values.

Still, Democrats continued to maintain control of the House of Representatives for some time, in large part because of continued support from Southerners, as shown in this map by Jonathan Davis at Arizona State University. But in 1994, the revolution finally arrived, as Republicans took the House for the first time since 1955. And many of the crucial pickups that made that possible came in the South.

Polling Data Shows Republican Party Affiliation Is Down As Independents Leaning Toward The Democratic Party Surge

Democrats have a nine-percentage-point affiliation advantage over Republicans at the moment.

The GOP is losing its grip, according to the latest Gallup poll.;

The number of Americans identifying as Republicans or as independents who lean toward the GOP dropped to 40% in the first quarter of 2021, compared with the number of Democrats or independents leaning toward the Democratic party hitting 49%. And that nine-percentage-point lead is the greatest Democratic advantage that Gallup has measured since the fourth quarter of 2012, when former President Barack Obama was re-elected.;

Gallup routinely measures U.S. adults party identification and the political leanings of independents. The latest poll surveyed a random sample of 3,960 U.S. adults by phone between January and March of 2021. And while Democratic Party affiliation actually dropped by one point from the fourth quarter of 2020, to 30% where it has hovered for most of the past eight years the number of Americans identifying as independent rose to 44% from 38% last quarter. And this growing number of independents came at the expense of the Republican party, as 19% of independents said they lean Democrat, compared with 15% leaning Republican. Most of the remaining 11% of independents didnt swing either way.;

And several events have happened during those three months that could position the Democratic Party more favorably in voters eyes, the Gallup report noted.;

Trends In Party Affiliation Among Demographic Groups

W. Virginia governor switches parties, Republicans now ...

The balance of partisan affiliation and the combined measure of partisan identification and leaning has not changed substantially over the past two decades. However, Democrats hold a slightly larger edge in leaned party identification over Republicans now than in 2016 or 2015.

In Pew Research Center surveys conducted in 2017, 37% of registered voters identified as independents, 33% as Democrats and 26% as Republicans. When the partisan leanings of independents are taken into account, 50% either identify as Democrats or lean Democratic; 42% identify as Republicans or lean Republican.

The 8-percentage-point Democratic advantage in leaned partisan identification is wider than at any point since 2009, and a statistically significant shift since 2016, when Democrats had a 4-point edge . The analysis in this report draws on more than 10,000 interviews with registered voters in 2017 and tens of thousands of interviews conducted in previous years .

There continue to be fundamental differences in the partisan orientation of different demographic groups, and in many cases these gaps have grown wider in recent years. For instance, gender, generational, geographic and educational divides are now as wide, or wider, than in Pew Research Center surveys going back more than two decades.

As has been the case for more than two decades of Pew Research Center surveys, women are significantly more likely than men to associate with the Democratic Party.

From 2010 through 2015, about half of women identified with or leaned toward the Democratic Party. But the share of women who identify with or lean to the Democratic Party has risen in recent years, to 54% in 2016 and 56% in 2017. The partisan breakdown of men is relatively unchanged over this period.

"I have made a lot of decisions that I truly regret. I’m resigning from my law firm and entering rehab after a long battle that has been exacerbated by these murders.

"I am immensely sorry to everyone I’ve hurt, including my family, friends and colleagues. I ask for prayers as I rehabilitate myself and my relationships."

However, one day before the shooting reports, it emerged that Murdaugh was pushed out of his law firm over "millions in missing funds."

The legal dynasty heir had announced that he would be resigning from his family’s law firm and entering rehab.

Meanwhile, the Hampton firm leaders disclosed to The New York Times that Murdaugh was forced out after he was allegedly discovered to have misused money from the company.

Murdaugh has an estimated net worth of million, earning about 0,000 annually from his law career.

It was also revealed that Murdaugh resigned from the law firm on September 3, 2021 - just one day before the prominent lawyer suffered a "superficial head wound" from being shot.

Murdaugh told police he had been hit on a road in rural Hampton County, South Carolina, on September 4 while changing a tire.

However, he was arrested on September 16, in connection to an insurance fraud scheme that court documents say involved him arranging for his own killing so his surviving son could collect the life insurance payout.

He faces charges of insurance fraud, conspiracy to commit insurance fraud, and filing a false police report, according to a statement from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. 

The case will be prosecuted by the state Attorney General's office.

Murdaugh also admitted to authorities on September 13 that he had orchestrated and conspired with a man to kill him as part of the plan.

The person was identified by police as Curtis Edward Smith, a former client of Murdaugh, according to an affidavit to support charges against Smith.

Smith is being held on bond for ,000 and will need to obtain an attorney in 15 days or his bond will be revoked.

Murdaugh, however, is being held on a ,000 bond and must surrender his passport to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and sign a waiver of extradition.

On October 14, 2021, it was reported that Murdaugh will be charged over his dead housekeeper's missing .3million insurance money payout.

Murdaugh, 52, was reportedly taken into custody by law enforcement officials at a rehabilitation facility in Orange County, Florida.

Murdaugh's attorneys Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin told The State that their client would be extradited to South Carolina.

“He surrendered himself to SLED, he didn’t fight extradition, and he is coming back. He wants to face these charges,” Harpootlian told the outlet.

“It’s a shame he didn’t get to finish his rehabilitation.”

On September 15, State Law Enforcement Division announced it reopened a cause-of-death probe into Murdaugh’s housekeeper Gloria Satterfield, who was originally believed to have fatally tripped and fallen in 2018.

“The decedent’s death was not reported to the Coroner at the time, nor was an autopsy performed,” Hampton County Coroner Angela Topper said.

“On the death certificate, the manner of death was ruled 'Natural,'” which is inconsistent with injuries sustained in a trip and fall accident.”

On Thursday, January 20, a state grand jury accused Alex of 23 additional charges involving millions of dollars in stolen client funds. 

Alex is charged in four new indictments with attempting to defraud victims out of ,273,959. 

He has also been charged with 19 new counts of breach of trust with fraudulent intent, as well as four new counts of computer offenses.

He currently faces 71 total charges from state grand jury indictments.

What happened to Alex Murdaugh's family?

Murdaugh's incident comes just three months after the murders of his wife Maggie, 52, and son Paul, 22.

Paul and Maggie were found lying yards apart near the dog kennels at their hunting lodge in South Carolina on June 7, 2021.

Investigators believe the son and mother were murdered with two different firearms.

Paul suffered wounds to his upper body and head from what appeared to have been a shotgun, while an assault rifle is thought to have been used to kill Maggie.

According to local reports at the time, Murdaugh had been named a person of interest in the investigation of his wife and son's death.

Paul faced three felony charges for boating under the influence for a 2019 crash in which 19-year-old Mallory Beach died.

Days before his death, a lengthy, court-ordered mediation session failed to resolve a civil suit stemming from the crash, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Beach was reportedly ejected from the boat, which held five other passengers, after Paul crashed into a bridge at around 2.20am on February 24, 2019.

According to The Island Packet, the group of friends was asked by adults earlier in the night not to go boating.

Yet, they boarded the 17-foot boat despite "pretty thick" fog.

The crash allegedly happened after Paul drove "full throttle" following an argument among the group.

He pleaded not guilty in May 2019 and was released on a ,000 personal recognizance bond.

The charges against Paul will now be dropped, but the civil suit against his family could continue.

What is the documentary of the Murdaugh family about?

On January 14, 2022, at 9pm ABC 20/20 aired a documentary named The Fall of the House of Murdaugh.

The two-hour documentary was about the ongoing Murdaugh crime saga in South Carolina.

The program documents the latest details in the developing story on the Murdaugh family homicides, the alleged financial crimes of Murdaugh, and other events surrounding the family.
