How many Rs and Ds are in Somerset County?Posted June 4, 2019
The new voter registration numbers show New Jersey, already a Democratic-leaning state — is adding Democrats at a faster pace than Republicans.
But the GOP is far from obsolete in the Garden State and still maintains control in some counties.
Republicans are outnumbered by registered Democrats by more than 952,000, according to the latest statistics from the state’s Division of Elections.
As of the end of April, New Jersey had 2,248,377 registered Democrats and 1,295,672 Republicans.
In 2018, Democrats added 104,333 voters compared to the GOP’s 46,442, according to the data.
Registered Republicans outnumber Democrats in six of the state’s 21 counties, and there several other counties that are pretty evenly split.
While President Donald Trump lost New Jersey by 14 points to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016, nine counties tipped in the Republican’s favor. And in Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy’s landslide in the 2017′s governor’s race, eight counties went for Republican Kim Guadagno.
The largest bloc of New Jersey voters — 2,386,959 to be exact — have not formally claimed any party affiliation. But pollsters who know such things say the breakdown of these unaffiliated voters is pretty close to the Democrat/Republican split. In some counties, the number of unaffiliated voters went down as some declared themselves to be either Democrat or Republican.
