Republicans Out Registering Democrats in Pennsylvania – By a Lot

 

Well, this is a surprise. Here in Pennsylvania, Republicans are out-registering Democrats. By a lot. At least recently.

Since the 2016 primary elections, Republicans have added at net 165,000 voters their rolls, while Democrats have added 30,000. Democrats still have an 800,000-voter lead over Republicans in the state, but that number is down from 936,000 just four years ago when President Trump won the state by roughly 44,000 votes or less than 1%.

This is quite a switch from recent years when the GOP was being consistently out registered by Democrats (and even somewhat more so by people moving their registrations to Independent, or non-affiliated). While larger counties (like mine, Delaware County in suburban Philly) continue to veer left, PA’s voluminous smaller counties are becoming increasingly Republican.

I originally just joked about this, really. I wasn’t actually serious about it. I mean, for most of my voting life I’ve been in the minority party. In my early voting adulthood, I registered independent because at the age of eighteen I was smarter than all the other voters in the room. Oh, and I […]
