Breakdown party affiliation of registered voters in the US?
Does anyone know the numbers?

Im also curious if people believe there will be an increase in voter registrations this year, and if the Democratic party has a push campaign to accomplish this.

1. 36% Democrats, 33% Republicans
May 3, 2006--During the month of April, just 32.7% of Americans identified themselves as Republicans. That's down from 34.0% in March and the weakest performance for the GOP since our monthly reports began 28 months ago in January 2004.

However, the GOP loss did not translate into gains for Democrats. Instead, the number of Americans unaffiliated with either major party increased to 30.9%, the highest total we've measured.

The number of Democrats remained steady at 36.4%. A month ago, 36.7% of Americans considered themselves Democrats.

These results come from Rasmussen Reports tracking surveys of 15,000 voters per month.

2. Here's a link to California stats
Overall number slightly up since 2002, percentage of eligible voters who are registered is down; trend away from parties in favor of "Declined to state" continues.

4. It is hard to quantify because many states, such as Texas,
you do not register by party.

5. I didn't know that.
It seems odd that things are so inconsistent across the country.
