While the nation is still deciding who is truly the next president, the iVoterGuide (iVoterGuide) team is encouraging believers to celebrate the Christian election wins of November 2020.
“Don’t fall prey to the Left’s ‘victory dance’ or uninformed ‘doom and gloom’ by conservative friends,” said iVoterGuide president, Debbie Wuthnow. “In politics, you seize what ground you can . . . and build from it. Over time, that’s how you win. And very strategic ground is exactly what Christians and conservatives have been given by the Lord.”
Wuthnow points to the nation’s biggest victories, “Hands down, I believe it is state legislatures. Because it is a census year, the state legislators who were elected on Nov. 3 will have control of redistricting—redrawing district lines for both their state legislature and the U.S. House of Representatives. The Constitution gives the legislatures this duty after each census records population changes. That means they can redraw districts to favor conservative candidates for the next decade!”
In these state legislative races, Christian and conservative voters had a nearly perfect night on Nov. 3. Candidates who share Christian values will control the redistricting of at least 188 congressional seats, or 43 percent of the U.S. House of Representatives.
What does this mean for America? According to Wuthnow, it means plenty.
“First, Christians and conservatives can erect an obstacle course—if not a firewall—to blunt the attacks of the Left. This firewall will get even stronger should conservatives prevail in the special Georgia elections for U.S. Senate on Jan. 5. Remember, not all Democrats are on board with the far-Left agenda. Many come from states like West Virginia, and they likely won’t vote with radicals or they will pay a price.
“Second, the state legislative victories mean that in 2022, control of the U.S. House is well within reach of Christians and conservatives. If you combine redistricting with the stunning victories won by conservatives in House races on Nov. 3, including a record number of pro-life women entering Congress, 2022 could shut the door on radical progressives in the House.
“Third, it means that we’ve only begun to tap the potential of turning out new and informed Christian and conservative voters who will vote their values. Despite voter fraud, despite the rise of leftist corporations and billionaires from Silicon Valley to Hollywood to Manhattan, we are awakening potentially tens of millions of new voters who can overcome their advantages.”
