WASHINGTON (AP) — Tens of thousands of suburban swing voters who helped fuel the Democratic Party’s gains of recent years are suddenly becoming Republicans.

Overall, more than 1 million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year. That’s according to voter registration data analyzed by The Associated Press.

They include both former Democrats and those previously unaffiliated with either major party.

The phenomenon is playing out in virtually every region of the country — red states, blue states, in cities and in small towns — in the months since President Joe Biden replaced former President Donald Trump.
