The Democratic Party’s advantage in voter registration in Florida has dimmed some since the 2008 general election, according to stats released by the state now that registration for the state’s Aug. 24 primary has closed. Central Florida Political Pulse reports that
without a presidential campaign operation pouring tens of millions of dollars into voter-registration, the Democratic advantage in raw numbers has shriveled a bit.
In the 2008 general election, Florida Democrats had a 657,000-vote advantage over Republicans. That lead has slimmed to 612,700 this year, according to the primary book-closing figures released by the Division of Elections this morning.
