‘American voters need to remain educated and informed about the issues our country is facing, because only then can we unite to impact change’
November 29, 2022
TUPELO, Miss. — Christian conservatives across America were surprised when the promised “red wave” during the 2022 midterm elections didn’t come as expected. Despite initial disappointments, Republicans did see some key victories in many races, and even secured the majority in the House of Representatives.
Regardless of the outcome of the election, iVoterGuide (ivoterguide.com), the nation’s premier Christian voting guide, saw a huge surge in usership leading up to Election Day. For the 2022 midterm election, iVoterGuide researched over 13,000 candidates and was used by nearly seven million voters across the nation, helping to equip concerned citizens with the facts about the candidates and issues so they could be informed voters.
iVoterGuide president Debbie Wuthnow commented about the election, “Although the red wave wasn’t quite as large as we had hoped, Judeo-Christian voters did accomplish the main goal we’ve been working towards all year: we shifted the balance of power.
“We shifted it in the right direction — in favor of solid candidates with proven biblical values and conservative, pro-liberty principles.
“We shifted it despite furious resistance from the woke Left machine, including BILLIONS of dollars, blatant lies from Hollywood and mainstream media, and even the altering of election laws in their favor.
“And we shifted attention towards down-ballot races, giving voters valuable information on these less-publicized races which paved the way for more champions of family and freedom to be elected at the state and local level.”
Wuthnow continued, “But our work is not done yet. We still have steps to take to keep the fight for biblical principles alive. We must hold the candidates we just elected accountable to their promises. There is no margin for error. With such a narrow majority in the House, we cannot allow our conservative congressmen and women to compromise and bow the knee to the radical woke mob.
“iVoterGuide’s research team will continue keeping a close watch on how every representative votes. If they turn against the biblical values they were elected to represent, we’ll let voters know so they can take action.
“We also must start gearing up now for the next set of elections. If 2022 taught us anything, it’s that we have to fight harder than ever for the results that we want. Pro-life ballot measures failed in many states where they were expected to pass, as did many parental rights measures.”
Wuthnow said, “We can combat the damage done by these disappointments only if we have leaders at the local level who will take action — but we must begin work now. School board elections start this spring in numerous states, as well as county judge, state legislature, and other state and local races.
“We must stand firm for our biblical values because they win. The most encouraging lesson we learned from the 2022 midterms is that unabashedly pro-life, pro-family, pro-faith candidates can win. We saw it happen in one race after another. On the other hand, candidates who were not strong on these issues, who compromised or played both sides… lost. This truth must be broadcast loud and clear to every candidate running for office over the next two years. Standing for life, for liberty, and for family values is a winning message, despite what the media says.
“The voters will reward candidates who stick to their principles, and that’s a blueprint we can turn into big wins for conservatives next year. But the voters can only reward the right candidates… if they know who the right candidates are. That’s why the team at iVoterGuide is more determined than ever before to continue releasing accurate, up-to-date information about thousands of candidates nationwide. American voters need to remain educated and informed about the issues our country is facing, because only then can we unite to impact change.”
