An Independent America: Voters leaving Republican, Democratic parties in droves
Saturday, December 24, 2011
A recent analysis conducted by USA Today showed that American voters are fed up with both mainstream political parties and are leaving them in droves.
The newspaper claims that “More than 2.5 million voters have left the Democratic and Republican parties since the 2008 elections.”
Over the last decade this trend has only seemed to accelerate says USA Today. While many people feel there is little difference in the parties, their options remain slim. Yet, voters switching to Independent have climbed dramatically.
According to the statistics gathered from eight swing states, “Democrats’ registration is down by 800,000 and Republicans’ by 350,000. Independents have gained 325,000.”
