Democrats are losing voters in three battleground states that saw tight results in the 2020 presidential election as the country heads toward a Trump-Biden rematch in November.

Voter records show that North Carolina, Nevada and Pennsylvania have seen a dip in registered Democratic voters since 2020, even though the three states still have more registered Democrats than Republicans overall.

North Carolina saw a 212,084 drop in Democratic voters between December 2020 and April 2024, according to state election data. There is now a difference of 170,943 voters between Democrats and Republicans; the state had a difference of 373,622 in 2020.

Nevada Democrats saw a decrease in 27,757 registered voters from December 2020, state election data shows. The Democrats’ 96,875 voter advantage over registered Republicans has fallen to 55,116 voters in Nevada.

Pennsylvania has lost 336,269 registered Democrats since November 2020, according to state election data. The party once had a 685,818 lead over the GOP, but now there’s less than a 400,000 lead.

The Republican Party also saw declines in Pennsylvania and North Carolina, while Nevada added roughly 14,000 to its GOP. All three states, however, saw increases in other areas, including independents and the states’ “non-partisan,” “unaffiliated” and “other parties” options.

In 2020, President Biden defeated former President Donald Trump in Nevada by 2.4 percentage points and in Pennsylvania by 1.2 points. Mr. Trump won North Carolina over Mr. Biden by 1.3 points.

The Real Clear Politics averages of polls currently show Mr. Trump leading in North Carolina by 4.6 points and in Nevada by 3.2 points. Mr. Biden holds a lead in Pennsylvania by a margin of .1 point.
