‘Not the Left Coast Anymore’?


Which political party has the most members in San Diego County, California?

Not too long ago, it was the Democrats, with 4,850 more members than the GOP in the county.

The latest report from the San Diego County Registrar of Voters shows that within the last month Democrats lost their majority party status as Republicans turned a deficit of -4,850 voters into a plurality margin of +891.

“Republicans surging to the largest party in San Diego County is a powerful sign of the rising Republican tide,” said California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring. “It’s not the left coast any more.”
