Nick Beaudrot has three more superb maps up today measuring new Democratic registrants in the Keystone State. Most of the new registrations are in Philly and the surrounding ‘burbs, as well as the Lehigh Valley.
It’s interesting to see that so many conversions are taking place in what Beaudrot calls the “Clinton stronghold of Northeastern Pennsylvania.” Wasn’t this supposed to be Obama’s initiative?
Here are the counties that had a Democratic increase of more than 5.0% and Beaudrot’s accompanying maps:
- Dauphin County (Harrisburg-Carlisle): 7.3%
- Monroe County: 6.6%
- Cumberland County (Harrisburg-Carlisle)
- Lehigh (Allentown): 5.8%
- Delaware (Philly’s inner suburb): 5.7%
- Philadelphia: 5.6%
- York: 5.2%
- Chester (the most Republican Philly suburb): 5.0%
