Trump is winning the voter registration battle against Biden in key states

It may not be enough to erase the former VP's polling lead but could boost the president if the race tightens.

He’s only a pretend president

Hmmm, it's from NBC. Fuck them.

An increase in voter registration due to trumps ground operations may have unintended consequences for him. He might be motivating unregistered voters who want him out of office.

That article was even less informative than I thought it would be, and the conclusion is the exact opposite of the headline.

[quote]Trump's voter registration edge alone wouldn't be nearly sufficient to offset the leads Biden is posting in polls of Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and probably Arizona. But if the race tightens or there's a substantial polling error, Trump's superior base growth could make a difference in a few tight states

Gee, I wonder why the OP posted a 2-WEEK OLD ARTICLE?

Could it be Boris is trying to deflect from Biden's bounce after the Supreme Court power grab and Trump's idiotic COVID-19 contraction and super spreading?

R5, give it a rest.

Please stop scaring me. I can't even watch the debates and the Amy hearings live. I'd have to hide behind a pillow.

Maybe I can watch the Biden Town Hall - that sounds pleasant.

Democrats trouncing Republicans in early voting in Florida!

Only because half of the dumb people who go to his rallies just realized they need to be registered.

by Anonymousreply 910/15/2020

Is there a reason NBC doesn't tell us the source of their data?

In September, Democrats lead Republicans in voter registration per The Hill (can't link to it) and a couple weeks ago there was an article based on TargetSmart data showing the change in overall registered voters in some states. Their conclusion was that the gap was closing but it still favored Dems.

Go stuff your face with borscht, Ludmila!

Why aren't these people registered already? They must be the people in Pennsyltucky who wrote their birthday in the blank asking for today's date.

by Anonymousreply 1210/15/2020

I highly, HIGHLY doubt this will make a difference.

How is Trump winning the registration battle? Am I missing something? When I registered they never asked me what party or who I was voting for. Just because someone registers to vote, doesn't mean they are voting for one or the other. Is this different in other states?

by Anonymousreply 1410/15/2020

In New York State you enroll in a party upon registration. You can also be independent. (Not to be confused with the NYS Independence Party which is the third largest party in the state because morons...well you know the rest.)

R5 Your thought process is what will contribute to a Trump win.

by Anonymousreply 1610/15/2020

I guess they are assuming all those registering as a republican will vote for Trump. How else can they come up with this conclusion?

by Anonymousreply 1710/17/2020

Yeah, like they can't imagine that Republicans are registering specifically to vote Trump out, because of how he has shamed them and destroyed the country.

by Anonymousreply 1810/17/2020

Even with newly registered voters, tRump’s dismal poll numbers could have the effect of depressing turnout by regular Repubs who were contemplating a vote for Cheatolini. Oh, the cult members will crawl over glass shards to vote for their Dear Leader. But there aren’t enough of them to get him in.

by Anonymousreply 1910/17/2020

I'm not going to lie, the voter registration thing has made me a little bit Susan Collins. But I'm going to trust that they know what they doing by not doing the door knocking and more in person registration events.

by Anonymousreply 2010/17/2020

I’m Concerned too because the Repubs outregistered us in FL, NC, and PA. We should have been on our A game there

by Anonymousreply 2110/17/2020

Why would anyone want to miss the exquisite feeling of ousting Trump out of our White House? The celebrating is going to be like New Years' Eve.

by Anonymousreply 2210/17/2020

I’m sure this was a Trump effort so these new voters will go into his column. Florida and NC could be decided by them.

by Anonymousreply 2310/17/2020

I am from NC and skeptical we will win it. After 2008, polls have consistently underestimated the Republican vote. Their votes come out of the cornfields and mountains to vote, while our base sits at home eating bon bons. Republicans almost always get three or four more points than the polls indicate here

by Anonymousreply 2410/17/2020

Seems like it would be more accurate to say the polls underestimated the Electoral College.
