More Colorado voters are choosing a party, putting a stop to the state’s steady rise in unaffiliated voters.
The Denver Post reports that the Republican Party appears to be the beneficiary this summer of the slight uptick in party affiliation. According to state reports, Republicans in August made up 37 percent of the state voters, while Democrats were at 33 percent. Unaffiliated voters dropped to 29 percent.
In 2010, unaffiliated voters were 31 percent of the electorate. Republicans were 35 percent, and Democrats were the same at 33 percent.
The newspaper reports that Republican registration in Colorado has been on the rise since 2008.
