Independents outnumber Registered Republicans for the first time

Americans are ready to abandon the two party system:

While independents have surpassed Republicans, there actually hasn’t been a huge drop in GOP party registration since Trump took office. Since October 2016, GOP registration has dropped by half a percentage point. Democrats have actually declined by nearly a full point over the same span. Independents have benefited from both drops.

And they have been doing so for years. Democrats are more than three points off their peak this century, which was in 2008 when Barack Obama was about to become president. At the time, 43.62 percent of voters were registered Democrats.
