GOP Making Major Voter Registration Gains Over Democrats In Key States

At a glance

  • Republicans now lead in registered voters in 12 states, compared to 10 states and Washington D.C., where Democrats have the plurality of registered voters. Self-proclaimed independents have the edge in nine states.
  • Democrats still have the overall advantage in numbers nationwide, in part because the 31 states that track party registration favor Democratic strongholds. But the new data reveal voter registration trends are continuing to move toward Republicans in a number of other places where Democrats have long enjoyed comfortable leads.
