Dems beat GOP for fourth consecutive month, winning women and Hispanic voters
TALLAHASSEE, FL —The Florida Democratic Party today released state May voter registration data showing that, for the fourth consecutive month, Democrats out-registered Republicans — this time by 10-points. Over the past four months, Democrats have steadily increased monthly gains over the GOP from a 3-point advantage in February to 10-points in April and May.
In a further sign that the GOP’s extreme agenda is causing crucial voting blocs to flee the party, significantly more women and Hispanics are registering as Democrats than as Republicans. Florida Democrats continue to maintain an overall registration advantage of 4-percent.
“The toxic brand of Rick Scott and the extremist policies of Mitt Romney have set the stage for Democrats to out-register Republicans for four straight months,” said Florida Democratic Party Executive Director Scott Arceneaux. “Our message of economic opportunity and fairness for the middle class is resonating with Florida voters and we are committed to building the strongest, largest ground game Florida has ever seen.”
