Between March 15 and April 15 Democratic voter registrations in Kentucky  declined by 783. Republican voter registrations on the other hand increased by 2486. Kentucky was once considered a reliably democratic state, but not anymore. And it’s largely due to national democrats and the party platform embracing values that democrats in the bluegrass reject. The idea of abortion up until the ninth month of pregnancy, transgender rights for men who invade women's privacy, sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants and welfare for able bodied recipients without any work requirements or community service. Such policies of national democrats continue to drive conservative democrats in Kentucky away from the party and into the arms of the GOP. This trend has gone on for eleven years. Expect it to continue so long as democratic candidates for president cater to the far left wing of the party.
