STUDY: Voters Fleeing Both Major Parties; Especially Bad For Democrats

(WASHINGTON) -- President Obama’s uphill battle to re-election is getting steeper.

A report released Wednesday by the centrist think-tank Third Way showed that more than 825,000 voters in eight key battleground states have fled the Democratic Party since Obama won election in 2008.

“The numbers show that Democrats’ path to victory just got harder,” said Lanae Erickson, the report’s co-author. “We are seeing both an increase in independents and a decrease in Democrats and that means the coalition they have to assemble is going to rely even more on independents in 2012 than it did in 2008.”

I am appalled by my government

This is the most healthy

This is the most healthy development in American politics in a long time. Too bad the media will contunie to preserve the fiction of two different parties for as long as they can.
