GOP registration drop after Capitol attack is part of larger trend

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Community Help forum).

The insurrection has affected voter registration by members of the GOP. A good number of former republicans have left the party. These defections are on top of some long term demographic trends https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/meet-the-press/gop-registration-drop-after-capitol-attack-part-larger-trend-n1256966

WASHINGTON ó In the weeks since the January riot at the Capitol, there has been a raft of stories about voters across the country leaving the Republican Party. Some of the numbers are eye-catching and suggest that the GOP may be shrinking before our eyes, but a closer look at the numbers over time shows that a larger change has been working its way through the party for some time.

In fact, when one takes into account shifts in the composition of the Democratic Party, the real story seems to be more about a deeper remaking of the nationís two major political parties.

To be sure, the headlines from the last few weeks have been striking, with multiple states reporting large declines in Republican voter registrations.

....We took merges of our poll data from 2010 and 2020 to look at the profiles of the two major parties over that time and we found big shifts in education, profession and gender. Let's start with education.

....And beyond education and occupation, the parties have seen some sharp shifts in gender.
