Final tally: GOP up, Dems down

The final voter registration numbers are in for Election Day _ and they are good for the Republicans and bad for the Democrats. The new tally shows that Florida has 10,433,849 registered voters. The breakdown shakes out like this: There are 4.21 million registered Democrats, 3.93 million registered Republicans and 1.96 million voters who registered with no party affiliation.

In 2004, the same year that the Democrats and other groups put on massive voter registration drives, there were 10,301,290 registered voters. There were 4.26 million registered Democrats, 3.89 million registered Republicans and 1.88 million voters who registered with no party affiliation. So that means the Republican voting ranks grew and the NPA ranks grew but the numbers of Democrats actually declined.
