North Carolina is quickly becoming redder every year as data shows that the Democrat Party is shrinking at an accelerated rate with 375,000 voters changing their registration since 2012.
The Tar Heel State used to be a very reliable Democrat kingdom. But that is no longer true. Between 1992 and 2010, Republicans had a problem gaining any traction at all. But since 2011, things started changing.
While Democrats have still remained successful with getting themselves elected to the Governor’s mansion, with only four Republican-controlled years since 1993, the GOP has fully controlled both houses of the state legislature since 2011. And not the GOP has a veto-proof majority on both houses.
Voters are, of course, the reason the Tar Heel GOP is winning… a lot!
And that is because there are more of them all the time, according to Just the News:
North Carolina voter registration switches for 2023 through the end of September show a net loss of more than 12,800 Democrats, with combined net increases for Republican and unaffiliated registrations of about the same.
Recently released data from the North Carolina Board of Elections through the end of September show 26,863 Democrats switched their registrations in 2023, with 7,079 changing to Republican and 19,784 registering as unaffiliated.
Another 22,215 left the Republican Party, with 2,431 registering as Democrats and 17,121 registering unaffiliated. A total of 11,554 unaffiliated voters switched their registrations to Democrat, while 13,608 joined Republicans.
In total, the net changes resulted in 12,878 fewer Democrats, 1,135 more Republicans, and 11,743 more unaffiliated voters through the end of September. On Sept. 30, the state’s more than 7.3 million registered voters were split 36% unaffiliated, 33% Democratic, and 30% Republican, with less than 1% combined registered with the Green, Constitution, Libertarian, and No Labels parties.
This has been going on for more than a decade and it doesn’t look like it is turning back in favor of the left-wing, anti-American Democrat Party any time soon.
In the next few years, analysts think that Republicans will finally out number Democrat voters. But already Republicans and independent voters do number more than the Democrats… which is why they can’t get control of the legislature back.
To date, 36 percent of voters in North Carolina are registered as Democrats. That versus the 30 percent registered as Republicans.But swinging things to the elephant party is the 33 percent registered as unaffiliated. Only .7 percent are registered as a specific third party, but even that tiny percent takes votes away from the Democrats.Commentary
