County Republicans start the climb back up

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

New voter registration numbers released today by the secretary of state show that the upward trend in Democratic voter registration in Ventura County has peaked. The numbers show that while both parties have lost voters since the June primary, the Democratic losses have been greater. The result: The Democratic edge in Ventura County has been trimmed by about 1,000 voters -- from a 13,404-voter advantage in June to an advantage of 12,411 as of Sept. 3.

The most recent numbers:

Democrats -- 166,830, or 40.03 percent
Republicans -- 154,419, or 37.05 percent
Decline-to-states -- 75,667, or 18.15 percent

At this point before the last gubernatorial election, in 2006, Republicans outnumbered
Democrats by about 8,000 voters -- evidence that these numbers can turn around pretty fast. Over the last four years, Democrats have gained 20,000 voters in Ventura County, while Republicans have actually lost about 150.

95 percent accurate
Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
