More Oregon Voters Shun Big Two Political Parties

The number of voters registered as non-affiliated have jumped since the last few weeks of September way past those who registered as Democratic or Republican.

More Oregon voters are ducking away from the big two political parties- Democratic and Republican. The reason according to political analysts is the same old rhetoric from the two parties. What that means is that Candidates running for president will have to focus more attention on those in the middle while keeping true to their die hard fan base. More people have registered as unaffiliated in Jackson County since September than Republicans or Democrats. The same is true for Oregon as a whole.
