Unaffiliated: Meet North Carolina's New Growing Voter Demographic
Voters in North Carolina are changing their party affiliations in droves. Republicans lost nearly 30,000 registered members since the election in November. For Democrats, the loss of registrants is even larger, albeit over a longer period of time: a quarter of a million, going back to 2008. The vast majority of those voters are registering as unaffiliated. On this episode of The Politics Podcast, we share a report from the podcast Tested in which WUNC's Rusty Jacobs asks what voters changing their party affiliations means for future elections in North Carolina.
