Where are people headed politically in Oregon? This chart may offer some clues.
In the last three years, growth in registration in Oregon among Democrats skyrocketed in 2008, then took a dive this year. That’s still better than the Republicans, who are still far behind and still losing registrants.
So who’s gaining? The people who sent us the chart – the Oregon Independent Party, which now has 51,000 adherents and is beginning to look as if it really can attain major-party status (if it wants that, which it may not). Both currently-major parties would do well to pay some attention.Share on Facebook
