GOP Winning The Voter Registration Battle In Florida

Republicans have taken a massive lead over Democrats in registering Florida voters for the upcoming presidential elections, with recent state data showing that the GOP’s margin has expanded to 851,417 voters — the largest gap seen in the state since 1988 when Democrats were dominant.

Florida Republican Party Chair Evan Power said of the trend, “The gap could make Florida an afterthought in this year’s presidential contest.”

Power expressed confidence the GOP will “win pretty big” in the state, stating, “It’s clear we’re a firmly red state now.”

Democrats point to a new state law that has moved nearly 1 million voters to inactive status as a factor inflating the Republican lead. It remains to be seen which cemetery these voters reside in, but these voters could easily reactivate their status. Overall, the Democrats lost over 1,000 voters since March, while the GOP has gained more than 30,000.

The GOP is dominating in Florida, leading in 56 of the state’s 67 counties. Even more liberal-leaning counties like Hillsborough and Madison are on the verge of flipping Republican.

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said, “Prior to 2021, FL never had more registered Republicans than Democrats. Now, a million voter R registration advantage is within reach.” The surge in GOP voters corresponds to recent increases in net migration into Florida.

The Democrat strategy of using abortion as a wedge issue after the reversal of Roe v. Wade in 2022 will be in play in Florida. Meanwhile, the Biden campaign has simply begun to describe the state as “winnable” despite the dismal registration numbers.

It’s not just Florida that is growing its registration efforts. With the GOP on the hunt to catch up with Democrats in their voter registration efforts, Republicans could see huge gains in the upcoming elections nationwide. The RNC has Scott Pressler hunting down votes across the country, recently making a public request to music artist Kid Rock for Pressler to register voters at his Republican-leaning concerts.
