Colorado GOP loses registrant lead

The Republican Party no longer has the highest number of registered voters here in Colorado. So who’s the new leader? Democrats? Hell no, buddeh! That’s crazy talk. This is, after all, Colorado.

The leading voter registration status is now “Unaffiliated”, as it was from 1978 to 1990. According to the Rocky Mountain News:

2008 Unaffiliated 1,021,979 34.19%

Republican 1,020,433 34.14%

Democrat 932,603 31.2%

Republicans have lost some 42,000 registered voters in 2006, whereas Democrats have picked up about 32,000. Looks like George W. Bush may have done a bit of good after all, however unintentionally.
