Florida Dems Beat Republicans in June Voter Registration
Dems beat GOP for fifth consecutive month
TALLAHASSEE, FL — As the President travels to Florida, the Florida Democratic Party today released state June voter registration data showing that, for the fifth consecutive month, Democrats out-registered Republicans — this time by nearly 10-points. Over the past five months, Democrats have steadily increased monthly gains over the GOP from a 3-point advantage in February to roughly 10-points in April, May and June.
In a further sign that the GOP's extreme agenda is causing crucial voting blocs to flee the party, significantly more women and Hispanics continue to register as Democrats than as Republicans. Florida Democrats continue to maintain an overall registration advantage of 4-percent.
"The President's message of protecting the middle class and helping businesses create jobs here at home - as opposed to outsourcing jobs overseas like Mitt Romney has done - is clearly resonating with voters," said Florida Democratic Party Executive Director Scott Arceneaux. "For the fifth consecutive month, Florida voters have sent a strong message to Mitt Romney and Rick Scott that they are rejecting the GOP's failed agenda which has put special interests ahead of middle class families. As Florida voters continue to flee the GOP, Democrats are committed to building the strongest, largest ground game the state has ever seen."
