No Party Affiliation voters in Florida are helping fuel a national trend by rejecting both the Democratic and Republican parties in now-record numbers. WUWF’s Dave Dunwoody reports.
The reasons are many – political bickering; no desire to identify as either a Republican or Democrat, and not wanting to be pigeonholed on certain issues. According to state figures, Florida’s voter rolls have added more than 500,000 names in the past four years – 90% of which are unaffiliated. In the meantime, the two major parties have remained for the most part stagnant.
