Prior to the Presidential election, I reported that Republicans had made gains in over where they stood in 2016.
Total registration was 227,315, compared to 211,593 in 2016. Democrats made up 45.0% of this total at 102,436. Republicans accounted for 35.8% with 81,345.
Since the election, registration has dropped. Weekly records are published online by the Department of State. They show that, as of January 25, registration has dropped to 218,089. Democrats make up 44.9% of this total with 97,958 registered voters. Republicans now make up 36% of the total with 78,609.
It would appear that Republicans are continuing to cut into the Democratic edge, but I noticed something else that may prove significant down the road.
Since the beginning of the year, 103 previously registered Republicans and 12 independents have become Democrats. At the same time, 37 Democrats and 22 independents have switched to the Republicans party.
It's too soon to reach any conclusion. But at this snapshot in time, it appears that Republicans are three times more likely to switch party than Democrats.
