Democrats racked up a sizable voter registration advantage in Iowa on January 3, 2008. (Democrats gained 60,000 new registrants that night.) Its the night Iowa Democrats set a record in Caucus participation, the night Barack Obama won the Iowa Caucuses. Republicans have been gaining in party registration and the latest voter registration data shows there are a few thousand more registered Republican voters in Iowa (actual number is 611,990) than registered Democrats (actual number is 607,999).
However, 678,704 Iowans have registered as no party voters (independents).
Iowas new secretary of state sent a tweet about the registration numbers today. The Iowa GOP issued a news release, which you can read below:
"Voter registration numbers from the Iowa Secretary of State today show that, for the first time in years, there are more Republicans in Iowa than Democrats.
Iowa GOP Chairman A.J. Spiker stated:
The failed policies of the Obama presidency and the Obama Democrats have opened the eyes of many voters to the benefits of the Republican Party ideals of lower taxes, less government intrusion, and the protection of individual liberty. More than 1 in 10 Democrats have fled the Iowa Democrat Party since Barack Obama was elected President, and today for the first time in years, there are more registered Republicans than Democrats. Iowa Republicans will continue to work hard to promote the ideals of less government and more freedom and earn the support of even more Iowans this November.
Voter registration totals announced today were: Registered Iowa Republicans: 611,990 Registered Iowa Democrats: 607,999"

During the next 13 months, Iowa Democrats edge remained above 100,000. Republicans saw significant gains in June 2010, due in large part to Terry Branstads reemergence on the political scene and his hotly contested gubernatorial primary with Bob Vander Plaats. The June 2010 numbers showed Republicans trailing Democrats by 93,461. By July 1, 2010, the margin dropped to only 46,104...
BIG DEAL...The “New” voters were ALL PaulTARDS!

+1. And we got a State Central committee with Paulistinians who are trying to pack the delegates to District & the State convention with their fellow travelers on the PaulTrain... The Establishment Party and their minions in the Establishment Media are making something out of nothing here.
