Re: “Your Party‚Äôs Dead, Man: Data Shows New N.C. Voters Abandoning Dems, GOP

I have to disagree with Charles. Unaffiliated or independents may be more engaged and informed about the primary process. As an unaffiliated voter I have the freedom to vote in either the republican or democratic primary. More choice is generally better correct? This gives an independent the ability to influence the final candidate from the other party. If more democrats switched their affiliation to unaffiliated they could've voted against Trump in the primary (as I did) to prevent the unthinkable from happening. I will be encouraging all of my democratic registered friends to do this in the future for this exact reason.

On another note this image demonstrates a lack of editorial oversight. 182% of new 26-40 voters registered as unaffiliated and 106% of new Republicans are 66+???? How does more than 100% of any group do anything? This makes me question every number listed here, including the main premise that only 2% of newly registered voters in the last decade registered as democrats. This is such an amateurish editorial oops it's not even laughable. I'd dare call it fake news.
