SECRET WEAPON: Trump Voters Registering At Much Higher Rates In Battleground States


Recent polls might show Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton neck-and-neck, but data coming from key swing states show that the GOP outsider may just have an advantage on election day.

Fox News reports:

For all the attention on battleground polls giving Hillary Clinton the edge, Donald Trump enjoys at least one electoral advantage in his uphill climb to the White House: Republicans are outpacing Democrats in registering new voters in key states.

A review of registration figures shows that in the swing states that sign up voters by party, Republicans are seeing a significantly bigger boost since 2012. In states like Florida and Pennsylvania, the party has added tens of thousands of voters to the rolls at a time when Democrats have seen their base shrink.  

“The numbers [in those states] … are a huge shift from what we’ve seen in 2012,” Republican National Committee spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said.

The surge doesn’t change the fact that Clinton leads, if only by a thin margin, in most battleground state polls, which presumably reflect the current voter make-up.

What do you think? Is this Trump’s secret weapon?
