Republicans in Pennsylvania have added almost 198,000 registered voters since 2016 – the year when Trump was elected. Meanwhile, Democrats have gained an additional 29,000.

According to Politico, since 2016, “Republicans have netted nearly seven times as many registered voters here than Democrats.”

While Democrats still outnumber Republicans by around 750,000 voters in the state, “the GOP has seized on their uptick in party members as a sign that Trump is on track to win this critical Rust Belt swing state a second time,” Politico reported.

“It’s one of the reasons why I am very bullish on Donald Trump’s prospects in Pennsylvania. I think he will win again, and I think he will win by more votes than he did in 2016,” said Charlie Gerow, a Republican strategist. “Trump is doing what Ronald Reagan did 40 years ago, which is moving a lot of traditional Democrats into the Republican column.”

More than this, the Republican Party has seen a larger boost in registrations than Democrats in these areas across Pennsylvania: Erie, Luzerne, and Northampton counties.

Registered Democrats are now at 47% of the state’s electorate – down from 49% in the same month 4 years ago. Republicans are at 39 percent – up from 38 percent four years ago.

“It’s Trump, Trump, Trump,” said Gloria Lee Snover, chair of the Northampton County Republican Party. “They’re like, ‘Oh, I want to be in the Trump party.’ It’s kind of funny. … I’m like, ‘You mean the Republican Party?’ They’re like, ‘Oh, yeah.’”
