SACRAMENTO – Democratic voter registration is at an all-time high of 8.2 million, and Democrats now hold an 18-point voter lead over Republicans.
Republicans’ divisive and failed leadership in California has eroded their support 12 percent since 1992, when the gap between the parties was just 7 points. California Democrats have gained the voter lead in Stanislaus, Riverside, Nevada, Mono, and Trinity counties since 2014.
California Democratic Party Executive Director Chris Masami Myers released the following statement:
“Democrats’ effective management of the state budget crisis and unwavering support for job and wage growth has restored California’s credit rating to the best in 15 years and created more than 2 million jobs. That’s the leadership Californians want to see, not the 100-day late budgets and economic crisis when Republicans ran our state.
“Donald Trump has denied California’s drought, tried to profit off the housing crisis, and stiffed hundreds of small businesses. California Republicans in Congress and the Legislature are some of Donald Trump’s strongest supporters, and voters will remember that in November.”
