Map: OKGOP makes history, now leads in majority of counties

In this update to my Voter Registration Maps series, we're looking at majority/plurality party by county. As with every other voter registration map I've posted, this map has changed some since last year.

Republican majority: 27 counties (26 in 2017)
Republican plurality: 13 counties (11 in 2017)
Democratic majority: 29 counties (33 in 2017)
Democratic plurality: 8 counties (7 in 2017)

For the first time in history, Republicans now lead voter registration (either an outright majority or a plurality) in a majority of Oklahoma's 77 counties; the GOP leads in 40 counties. Just last January, it was the Democratic Party that lead in 40 counties.
