Report: Trump Campaign and RNC Registering More New Voters than Democrats in Battleground States

Report: Trump Campaign and RNC Registering More New Voters than Democrats in Battleground States

“Republicans have lessened the margin by 133,000 registered voters in Pennsylvania and 87,000 voters in Florida.”

According to a report in Axios, the Trump Campaign and the RNC have registered 100,000 new voters in battleground states Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida.

From Axios:

The Trump campaign and RNC have now registered 100,000 new voters in the 2020 cycle, more than doubling their numbers from 2016 and shrinking Democrats’ registration advantage in key swing states, according to new Trump Victory data provided exclusively to Axios.

Why it matters: Democrats still have more active registered voters in Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida, but Republicans have managed to narrow the margins in those states by tens of thousands of voters since 2016.

Between the lines: Trump won Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, Arizona and Iowa in 2016, but former Vice President Joe Biden is currently ahead in the polls in all but Iowa, according to FiveThirtyEight.

But Republicans have narrowed the voter registration gap in key swing states, according to Axios’ reviews of those states records.

  • Republicans have lessened the margin by 133,000 registered voters in Pennsylvania and 87,000 voters in Florida.
  • Republicans have also chipped away at Democrats’ advantage in the tossup state of North Carolina — gaining a net 216,410 voters since Election Day 2016.
  • Meanwhile in Arizona and Iowa, Trump Victory has managed to slow voter registration momentum behind Democrats.
  • In Iowa, the number of registered Democratic voters surpassed Republicans in March, but Republicans recently took back the advantage. Democrats had been outpacing Republicans in Arizona as well — but since April, Republicans have overtaken them.

I don’t trust the RNC any more than the DNC.

Give your money to the Trump campaign. Starve the GOP.

    Fire McDaniel and replace her with Catherine Engelbrecht.

      I can think of a hundred women – or men – who are more qualified to head the RNC.

      Like Sarah Sanders.

      Like Kayleigh McEnany.

      Anyone but this romney re-tread.

        I heartily agree about new RNC leadership, but I’m not so sure about “starving the GOP.” Do we want the Senate to go blue? Do we want the Dimocrat majority in the House to increase?

        Let’s not blow a hole in our own runway. We’ll never fly if we do that.

    The Republicans are running a limp TV campaign. I have see one basic add, about no response to 911 calls, that keeps on running ala My Pillow. I did see one other ad that warned of the effects of a Biden victory; it states that Biden will grant amnesty to 11,000,000 illegal aliens. Why did these stupid Republicans use the the D’Rat talking-point lie that the number is only 11,000,000? That number is many years old, and the true current number is 2,3, or 4 times that! Can’t the dummy Republicans even do basic research? And at the end of the ad, Trump says “I approve this message.” Where are the ads that adequately explain Trump’s achievements, and the failures and dangers of the D’Rats? The Media isn’t going to do it, so the Republican ads have to educate the public. The Republican incompetence or outright betrayal is very concerning.

    I agree about not trusting either, politicians, especially the upper crust, are like pond scum, which always rises to the top.

That about as much help and unicorns and bigfoot is we can’t translate that to votes.

What percentage of newly-registered voters are likely voters and how does that compare to the rest of the voters?

I would expect these new voters to be somewhat more enthusiastic than many of those who have been on the rolls for years and may have already sat out several elections.

Because new voters haven’t yet experienced the disappointment of an election loss or, worse, a winning candidate who doesn’t deliver on campaign promises.

    I have been on the rolls since my 20’s, and never sit out an election, even where there is a razor thin difference,

In addition to registering more voters, the Republicans need to work on blocking the techniques the Dems use to cheat.

The most obvious methods of cheating are:
1. Vote harvesting. (Legal in some states, such as CA.) Have operatives go around and pick up ballots from voters and any ballots lying around or discarded near mailboxes. Turn in the ones that vote the “right” way, shred the “wrong” ones, and fill in the blank ones.

2. The dead vote. (Easy anywhere they don’t have voter ID.) Give your operatives lists of dead people and their precincts to go and vote for them. In some states, this also works for convicts. In many places, it’s the dead vote that swings the elections.

Whenever a political party pushes for legalizing ballot harvesting or not requiring voter ID, that is a tip-off of how they intend to cheat. It’s obvious that people don’t need harvesters to turn in their mail-in ballots, and it’s also obvious that people have IDs. You have to show an ID to buy beer, drive a car, register for welfare or Medicaid, and many other things that are common for the rich and poor alike.

My wife read me a joke from somewhere:

“My grandfather, a lifelong republican, voted democrat for the first time in the last election.

That would not have happened if he were still living.”

RNC Chair: If Biden Can’t Debate, He Should Be ‘Disqualified’…

Weazil Zippers

Of course, we can count on Team Republicuck to cowtow to corporate demands for unlimited H1’s and cave, oh wait, ‘compromise’ on anything the base who elected them would like.

Newt ‘lazy grifter’ Gingrinch had both houses of Congress in the 90’s and squandered it on a worthless impeachment show trial instead of actually lowering taxes, cutting government (what ever happened to abolishing the Dept of Education and defund the UN/WHO?), securing the border, and the second Amendment.

Sadly, Texas is stuck with the cuckservative grifter John Cornyn. Cruz is slightly better, but only got on the Trump train after he was kicked in his groin area.
