Tina Korbe has this story at Hot Air: Independents everywhere
In a sign that voters are increasingly disillusioned with party politics, more individuals now identify themselves as independents than have in 50 years. That’s bad news for both parties, but slightly worse news for Democrats, who’re losing affiliated voters at a faster rate than Republicans. ABC’s Amy Bingham reports:
In eight states that will be must-wins in 2012 – Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina and Pennsylvania – Democrats lost 5.4 percent of their registered voters while Republicans lost 3.1 percent. The number of independent voters in those states jumped 3.4 percent.
It made me wonder if this broader movement way from political parties to Independent was also happening in Nevada County. It is clear from the registration numbers, that Independent were gaining, but we will have to wait for the latest registration number to see of the Democrats are the biggest losers.
