A new Reuters report has revealed that Republican voter registration is surging in Pennsylvania, a key battleground state that has narrowly favored Democrats in recent elections.
Republicans have registered four former Democrats for every one former Republican registered by Democrats, a “warning sign for Democrats” in the upcoming midterm election cycle.
Currently, Democrats still have 4 million registered voters to Republicans’ 3.4 million, but that advantage continues to narrow. Nationally, according to Reuters, Republicans are “on track to be the highest conversion rate in at least a decade and well above 2016, when Republicans took the White House, House of Representatives and Senate.”
The state will have a key senate race this year that could decide who controls the entire U.S. Senate, as Sen. Pat Toomey (R) is retiring.
Reuters reported that House races could also be impacted, such as that of the 7th district where Rep. Susan Wild (D) narrowly won her seat in 2020.
