As independent voters’
numbers rise, GOP hurt most

McClatchy News (CA), by David Lightman

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 1/21/2014 10:46:01 AM

WASHINGTON -- Fed up with the Democrats and Republicans who run Washington, growing numbers of people are calling themselves independents. The Republican Party stands to suffer the most from the movement away from staunch party loyalty, but Democrats also are affected. “This says both parties are dealing with wounded brands,” said Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion. As a result, he said, “there are more voters up for grabs.” Voters are increasingly wary of anyone with ties to the political establishment. A McClatchy-Marist poll last month found 41 percent of registered voters called themselves independent, a much higher

Comments:
These "independents" are running away from the horrors of 0bama´s leftism and will stay away from a conservative candidate because of the smear campaign and FALSE image the left has created of the political right.
A true conservative who is able to articulate a common sense message contrasting the historic success of our founding principles with the abject devastation 0bama and the left have wrought on our nation would scoop up these people in a heartbeat.

Dead wrong. Independents always flock to the "outs" when they are unhappy with the direction of the country.

The article is correct as to California. A review of the actual records on voter registration at the website of the Secretary of State shows an increase in Democrats and a reduction in Republicans as the number for Declined to State grows.

Independent in this case is with a small "i". They are not moving to the Independent party.

(cont´d)

It is a reach to say this "hurts" the GOP. These voters can still vote for Republican candidates.

If you did not select a political party when you registered to vote, you can request a ballot of any political party that has notified the Secretary of State that it will permit decline-to-state registered voters to help nominate their candidates. You may NOT request more than one party´s ballot.

These voters are definitely not lost to the Republicans.

The article cites two polls -Gallup found that 42% percent of registered voters were describing themselves as Independent.
Marist found that 41 % of registered voters were describing themselves as independent.
Interesting analysis of the geographical trends.
Bottom line for both parties is that the extremes on both sides are turning off voters.

Many dedicated conservatives choose not to become victims of NSA-IRS-HHS chicanery.

Re-registering as an ´Independent´ is just a bit of mis-direction.

After 20 years as a registered Republican, I changed to "Independent" because I was so tired of liberal lite, the Roveites trashing the Tea Party, and playing footsie with the Dems on amnesty. The Republican party will continue to lose conservatives like me as long as they continue on this course. Try winning an election without the conservative wing of the party. I´m sure Presidents McCain and Romney can give you a lot of pointers.

Its hard to tell who is an "extremist" in the Democrat Party since the entire membership are communist totalitarians dedicated to the destruction of the American republic. I guess "moderate" Democrats must be those designated to "reach across the aisle" to accept Republican surrenders.

On the other hand, those labeled as "extremist" in the Republican Party are people who actually (can you believe it) want the government to follow our Constitution.

Yet, it is "extremists" from both parties that are turning off voters? I think what is turning off voters is total lack of any integrity by the "leadership" of both parties.

Just sayin´.

A reality check for the befuddled.
GOP identification continues to fall even w/a gross incompetent like Obama. More importantly, the Great L Heartland continues to grow in population (EC votes) and wealth; while the rock solid blue No.East continues its inexorable decline. Yet thr R Mandarins insist that the likes of Romney and Christie are the only way to go. Most fatally, the R Establishment is at war w/the rank and file. The GOP is dead from willful stupidity. All this sturm und drang are the birth pangs of a new principled and vibrant party w/a critical ingredient called intelligence!

Independent just another word for lo fo malcontent IMO. To fix anything it is better to keep the half full glass and pour more into it than to dump out the glass and try to compete with folks like Hillary and their sure 47%.

The independents are more easily swayed (like the willows in the wind that the middle is) by the propaganda and in obama´s campaigns the outright lies that he told.

Put out a military recruiting poster "See the White House, serve the world" Military service having a new meaning under the Hillary Clinton presidency.

In the issue polls I have seen, the independents are much more commonly on the side of the GOP. Should ObamaCare be repealed is a good example. Roughly 70% of GOP say yes, the Dems say no, and the average for yes is 65%.

The GOP lost me with McCain. I was already on the ropes with W (who is still in my eyes a great man but I got jaded by the bailouts.)

I also switched to non affiliated to avoid all the ranting libs I am unfortunately surrounded by at my place of work. Got tired of the endless illogical kool aid swillers. Only a select few know how I vote, and it´s nobody´s business anyways.

I guess my point is, don´t count out us non affiliated types, some of us are are more conservative than the Beltway types.

#15, I tend to agree. "Independent" too often simply means undecided (or wishy-washy?) and we´ve all seen how the undecideds enjoy the media attention in Iowa and New Hampshire in presidential election years.

Texas doesn´t have party registration, so the whole state can claim to be anything and can vote that way. I believe that to be a very good thing.

CAMBRIDGE – Cambridge police say the man wanted for sucker punching at least three people over the weekend is not part of a disturbing national trend known as the ‘knockout game.’ The series of unprovoked attacks happened in broad daylight Saturday afternoon between Massachusetts Avenue and Trowbridge Street. In this first incident, according to a Cambridge police report, a man told officers he was walking towards Central Square when the suspect walked “directly towards him.” “He stepped to his left and the suspect mirrored that move.

Despite Obama administration claims that this year’s harsh winter is due to global warming, winters have have been getting colder in the past two decades, according to government climate data. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s recently released climate data shows that U.S. winters have cooled over the past 20 years at a rate of minus 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit per century.

A White House official said the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative would partner government with businesses to “make sure that every young man of color who is willing to work hard and lift himself up has an opportunity to get ahead and reach his full potential.” Young African-American men are unemployed at a higher rate than the population at large, and are more likely than peers of other races

Barack Obama was once a constitutional law professor, but now views the founding document as irrelevant. The president is ruling by decree, instead of working with a divided Congress. The Founding Fathers would be appalled by the way the current occupant of the White House has usurped power to get his agenda passed. There is nothing to restrain Mr. Obama, now a lame duck, from forcing his liberalism on America. For example, the White House declared Wednesday that it will not go through Congress to create regional “climate hubs” to deal with the supposed crisis of “climate change.” This comes

AS celebrity gossip goes, it takes some beating: actress and model Elizabeth Hurley has a year-long affair with Bill Clinton while he was US president. Throw in the suggestion that they had a liaison in the White House while Hillary Clinton was next door, and that Mr Clinton ended it when he realised he was falling in love, and you have a story that rivals Marilyn Monroe´s alleged fling with John F Kennedy. But when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, as Ms Hurley pointed out yesterday when she was forced to deny the "ludicrously silly" report

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies.

His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.
