Registered voters in America?

How many registered voters are there in America?

Have you ever wondered about how many people are registered? And to which party? I did some digging and found this information on voters in America.

The University of California, Santa Barbara’s American Presidency Project found that 235,248,000 people were of voting age in America as of the 2012 election.  The turnout of voters in 2012 was 129,151,152 making it 54.9%.
This is reported by Google Click Here for more information.

Estimates show more than 58 percent of eligible voters went to the polls during the 2016 election. Nearly breaking the turnout rate set during the last presidential election in 2012.

Democrats

There are about 43,140,758 registered Democrats in America. 
Gallup.com says 31% of voters are Democrats

Republicans

There are about 30,700,138 registered Republican voters in America. 
Gallup.com says 24% of voters are Republicans

Independents 

According to Gallup.com about 42% of voters claim to be Independents. 
According to Huffington Post 40% of American voters identify as Independents. Both reports are fairly close. Close enough for a rough calculation. So independent voters number about 58,448,769 voters.

Summarizing: 

There are more Independent voters than either Democrats or Republicans. The Independent folks actually determine elections in America.

A question that will get answered this November 2020 is;
How outrageous can the Republican party get before we vote them out?

So far they can run up large deficits, give money to all there donors, offer bribes to foreign leaders and pardon any criminal including Trump. Still no Republicans’ seams to care!

Our grand-kids will wonder someday, what happen to the Republicans.

It will be interesting to watch how woman and minorities vote this November. They have the most to lose by not voting.
