The Florida Democratic Party’s voter registration problem is worsening.
Republicans now outnumber Democrats in the state by over 470,000 voters, according to data from the Florida Department of State.
The GOP only took the lead in registration in the former purple state in 2021.
The widening gap has primarily been fueled by a decline in registered Florida Democrats.
The party’s registration rolls swelled in advance of the 2020 presidential election — only to consistently decline in the following years.
The Florida Democratic Party has lost a whopping 134,583 voters since late 2022, according to Florida’s Voice.
Florida Republicans have lost voters since last year as well, but only a fraction of what the opposition has lost. Only about 18,000 voters were removed from the GOP rolls in the same timeframe.
The GOP’s registration advantage in the Sunshine State has escalated this year, growing by over 17,000 in April alone.
Republicans led Democrats by just over 350,000 registered voters
