Florida Republican Voter Registration Soars

“Our children and grandchildren will thank us for the voter registration gains we are experiencing today.”

According to recent polling, Florida is becoming more Republican. If the last 3 elections weren’t clear enough, Floridians have made Florida as red as it’s ever been. With 3  2024 presidential candidates that are based out of Florida, and with Democrats trying to expand their scope of influence on the political map, Florida remains an important state during election season.

However, the state might pose an obstacle to Democrats as Republican voter registration continues to outpace that of Democrats.

This week, Florida GOP Chair Christian Ziegler released a statement, providing an update on where the Republican party stands heading into the 2024 presidential election.

“In just four and a half years, the State of Florida has gone from having about 250,00 more Registered Democrats than Registered Republicans to now over 500,000 more Republicans than Democrats,” Ziegler informed.

According to Ziegler, this increase is indicative of “both the strength of the Republican Party and the expedited extinction of the Democrat Party in the Sunshine State, which cannot happen enough.”

He concluded by praising the registration effort, saying that “our children and grandchildren will thank us for the voter registration gains we are experiencing today.”

However, though Republicans are basking in the registration surge, the upcoming presidential election could pose an obstacle for voters.

Support in Florida appears to be divided between President Donald Trump (R) and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), and this month, a third Floridian in Miami Mayor Francis Suarez (R) entered the presidential race.

All three are vying for the support of Florida in their race for the nomination, and all three have received overwhelming support from the state in their respective races.

Trump, seen as the frontrunner, has accused DeSantis of being “DeSanctimonious,” and while DeSantis has, at times, responded to the president’s criticisms, Suarez has steered clear from directing political jabs at both.
