It may not be the signs of a “blue wave,” but a new report from the Secretary of State’s Office suggests that Arizona Democrats appear to be more energized this year than Republicans.
And that may translate to victories in races that in any other year they could not win.
The latest figures show that for every person who registered with the GOP since March, the Democrats registered more than three.
That doesn’t endanger the lead that Republicans have in Arizona. They still make up nearly 35 percent of registered voters, versus less than 31 percent for Democrats.
And independents – those not affiliated with any of the four recognized parties – still make up about a third, though their share of the total is dropping.
