Independents topple Republicans for most voters in Arizona

PHOENIX -- Independents have finally passed Republicans as the largest voter bloc in the state.

The change confirmed what many have known for years, a growing number of voters don't want to be associated with either major political party.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett announced the change in a registration report Monday. He said of the 3.25 million registered voters in the state nearly 35 percent are registered as independents. Republicans are now just behind and Democrats have about 29 percent.

Both Republicans and Democrats have been losing voters to the independent category for the past two decades.

Political consultants said the numbers show disaffected Republicans and Democrats are choosing to ditch the party label.
