In December 2011, we released a report showing that in the years since President Obama’s election, Independent enrollment grew in presidential battleground states while Democratic and, to a lesser extent, Republican enrollment declined. This is the third of our periodic updates of voter enrollment in presidential battleground states and we offer 3 findings:

  1. Independent enrollment continues to outpace Democratic and, to a lesser extent, Republican registration.
  2. Independents are at historic levels around the country and in the battlegrounds.
  3. Independent voting is more volatile than in past elections.
