Florida Dems See Registration DECLINE Since 2016, Severely Hurting Dem Chances of Winning Governor’s Race

New voter data shows that “the percentage of active registered Democrats is down by nearly 2 percentage points compared with 2016,”

Per The RGA:

For months, Florida Democrats have hoped that a surge in Democrat turnout would compensate for their weakgubernatorial field.

But, new voter data shows that “the percentage of active registered Democrats is down by nearly 2 percentage points compared with 2016,” trailing those mailed in by Republicans. According to Politico, these figures have Democrats “worried” and asking, “where’s the blue wave?”

The strong Republican voter data is more proof that Floridians don’t want to go backwards and do not want to reverse Governor Scott’s successful pro-growth policies.

Politico has more:

What blue wave? While it’s notched four consecutive wins in local bellwether races, Florida’s Democratic Party has lost a share of its registered voters in Florida since 2016 and the percentage of Democrats casting vote-by-mail absentee ballots this month trails those mailed in by Republicans, according to new figures from the state’s elections division.’

For this election, the percentage of active registered Democrats is down by nearly 2 percentage points compared with 2016, according to Florida Division of Elections data published Sunday for the primary. Because Florida doesn’t allow last-minute voter registration, the figures are final.

Some Democrats are worried, but they won’t say so publicly. They haven’t occupied the governor’s mansion in 20 years, and the only statewide elected Democrat, Sen. Bill Nelson, who is seeking reelection, is slightly trailing Gov. Rick Scott in recent polls as the Republican has unloaded on him in a broad TV ad campaign.

‘None of us will admit this publicly, but we’re worried. Where’s the blue wave?’ a Democratic consultant tied to a major Florida campaign said about Florida‘s 2018 election.
