Democrats losing voters in swing states

SHARE

A new Bloomberg analysis finds independent voters “are growing in numbers at the expense of Democrats in battleground states most likely to determine this year’s presidential election.”

“The collective total of independents grew by about 443,000 in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire and North Carolina since the 2008 election, according to data compiled by Bloomberg from state election officials. During the same time, Democrats saw a net decline of about 480,000 in those six states, while Republicans — boosted in part by a competitive primary earlier this year — added roughly 38,000 voters in them, the analysis shows.”
