Every once in a while, the GOP gets its act together. In this case, the goal is to register as many unregistered GOP voters as possible. Democrats have long outpaced the GOP in voter registration. Until now.
The GOP has long been rather lackadaisical about things that have propelled the leftist crazies to their current level of prominence in our society, culture, and politics. Republicans seemed to imagine that being right is might, that winning the day is a matter of being the most reasonable and most unifying (in terms of eschewing identity politics and embracing all Americans as Americans). The idea seems to have been that defeating the anti-American Marxist and anarchist union of conflicting purpose is best achieved by ignoring it.
No longer. The GOP under President Trump’s leadership suddenly understands that being proactive, fighting Democrats on their own turf, is not only important but vital.
To that end, the GOP has stepped up its voter registration efforts and is outpacing Democrats in this—historically their own—arena.
The Republican Party has edged out the Democrats in the race to sign up new voters — and coronavirus lockdowns are to blame, a new report says.
New registrations cratered in the last three months, says TargetSmart, a Democratic data firm. In May of this year, 194,596 new voters were registered nationwide, according to TargetSmart’s report. That’s just 13 percent of the 1,490,631 who registered in May 2016.
In at least five battleground states, Democrats appear to have borne the brunt of the damage during the COVID-shutdown period.
In Maine, for example, 59 percent of new voters registered as Dems pre-coronavirus — but only 40 percent have done so in the months since.
Dem declines were also seen in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania, TargetSmart found.
Additionally, in the swing state of Iowa, the new voters helped the GOP retake the statewide lead in voter registrations last month, Politico reported.
. . . . Despite the recent registration decline, over the entire pre-election period Republicans “have doubled the amount of new voter registrations … than we did in the entire 2016 cycle,” RNC press secretary Mandi Merritt told The Post. GOP canvassers added nearly 4,000 new voters to the polls over the July 4th weekend, she said.
