Civitas Uncovers Major Shift in North Carolina’s Political Landscape

Carolina Transparency, a project of the Civitas Institute, has been tracking voter registration trends that not only show the number of registered Democrats is plummeting, but also now reveal the number of unaffiliated voters will soon surpass that of Republican voters.

Civitas Elections Analyst Susan Myrick said, “If these trends continue, it is possible that unaffiliated voters will surpass registered Republicans in North Carolina in the next few months. But while this will be a noteworthy development in one of North Carolina’s two major political parties, the real change is taking place among Democrats, the only segment of N.C.’s voter registration to have decreased since January 2009. Since that time, Democrats have experienced a net loss of 229,645 voters, Republicans a net gain of 49,317 voters and the unaffiliated ranks have gained a total of 638,613 voters.”

Just two months ago, Republicans outnumbered the Unaffiliated ranks by 24,676 voters. As of July 15th, that number had shrunk to 13,128. If the trend continues, it will only be a few short months before there are more unaffiliated voters in North Carolina than Republicans.

Founded in 2005, the Civitas Institute is a Raleigh, NC-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit policy organization that fights to remove barriers to freedom so that all North Carolinians can enjoy a better life.

    This information is NOT surprising! My wife and I and family and friends we know have left the Republican party! I have several health issues and am out of work. I CANNOT get any unemployment benefits because I have only “APPLIED” for disability so I have NO INCOME. I have been denied disability now 3 TIMES and now have to wait 2 years for my hearing. I have worked my whole life, paid my taxes, and have paid into the “system” and CANNOT GET ANY HELP. I have contacted all my REPUBLICAN state senators and congressmen: Brent Jackson, William Brisson, Ronald Rabin, Thom Tillis, George Holding, and Richard Burr and have either gotten NO HELP or just a lot of “lip service.” And yet, there are illegal aliens here that AREN’T EVEN CITIZENS that get all kinds of assistance: FREE health care, FREE food stamps, FREE WIC, FREE social services, FREE housing assistance, FREE financial assistance, etc. IS THAT ENOUGH??? OR WOULD YOU LIKE MORE???
    The National GOP and the NC state Republican Party are OUT OF TOUCH with the STRUGGLING MIDDLE CLASS and they are TRAITORS to their constituents and have stabbed their voters in the back. WAKE UP, PEOPLE! WE HAVE COMMUNISTS IN OUR GOVERNMENT THAT WANT TO DESTROY THIS COUNTRY. THE COMMUNIST LIBERALS, THE COMMUNIST MEDIA, AND THE ELITE & ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS ARE ALL IN BED TOGETHER. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU. ALL THEY WANT IS TO BE RE-ELECTED FOR POWER AND CONTROL. IT’S TIME TO “DRAIN THE SWAMP AND SEWAGE IN WASHINGTON DC and in NC!
    AND, YES, I AM A TRUMP SUPPORTER 100%. WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP MAY BE OUR LAST CHANCE TO SAVE AMERICA FROM RADICAL COMMUNIST FORCES THAT ARE OUT TO DESTROY US.
