Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Decline of Republican Registration in California to Below 30%

The Secretary of State released new voter registration figures earlier today and two things were made apparent. The first is thanks to online voter registration, there are now more voters registered in California than at any other time. The second is that Republican voter registration in California has dipped below 30%.

California Republicans are in a state of permanent decline and it's no secret why. They continue to pander to their far-right base of supporters and refuse to offer solutions to our challenges beyond their one-size-fits-all remedy of tax cuts for the wealthy and tax breaks for the big corporations.

As they continue their rightward march toward oblivion, Republicans will find themselves increasingly isolated and their ideas easier to ignore as Californians continue to look for practical, real-world solutions on the issues of the day and turn to Democrats to get the job done.
