Party down

Voter registration in Oklahoma is on the rise, but that doesn’t mean the Democratic Party is part of it.

Republican voters have had the largest net growth of all political parties in the state since June 1 of this year. Democrats, who have held the most registered voters for many decades, only do so now by a small margin.

Also outpacing Democrats in growth are Independent voters, an interesting development since registered independents cannot vote in state primary races.

Democratic clout in Oklahoma has been close to anemic in recent years, and now voter registration numbers are finally starting to reflect reality.

Are Oklahoma Democrats rivaling polar bears in the realm of extinction? We bet this is one case of endangerment that Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe is willing to acknowledge.
