Drop in Ohio voter registration, especially in Dem strongholds, mirrors nationwide trend
Voter registration in the Buckeye State is down by 490,000 people from 4 years ago.
Of that reduction,. 44 percent is in Cleveland and surrounding Cuyahoga County, where Democrats outnumber Republicans more than two to one.
Ohio is not alone. An August study by the left-leaning think tank Third Way showed that the Democratic voter registration decline in eight key swing states outnumbered the Republican decline by a 10-to-one ratio.
In Florida, Democratic registration is down 4.9 percent, in Iowa down 9.5 percent. And in New Hampshire, it's down down 19.7 percent
Should say "purged registrations"
All generalizations are dangerous.
