Yes. The migration is now in the MSM. Folks, this is why he is winning in the national polls and will win the general election. It is time for the GOP to get behind him. Sanders is who was wanted and Hillary is the one with the ceiling it seems. I would like to see if the polling shows that these were Bernie supporters.

Nearly 20,000 Bay State Democrats have fled the party this winter, with thousands doing so to join the Republican ranks, according to the state’s top elections official.

Secretary of State William Galvin said more than 16,300 Democrats have shed their party affiliation and become independent voters since Jan. 1, while nearly 3,500 more shifted to the MassGOP ahead of tomorrow’s “Super Tuesday” presidential primary.


This article is showing that there are those who are not looking for the establishment type candidate and are willing to cross parties to makes sure we are not in the same situation as we have been for decades. Records numbers are going to turn out for Super Tuesday.

Only in the fevered dreams and deranged fantasies of bawling liberals as they watch him go straight into the White House.

This is the masses understanding they don't really have a vote and neither party represents them. They want change, a real change and a voice that is heard.

That being said, the establishment of both parties will crush them/us all.

I called this. I called this the moment CNN opened their mouths.

DNC is in damage control mode.

Say hello to World War 3.

Did we forget this little piece at the bottom of the article?


The 19,800 who left the Mass Dems represent about 1.3 percent of the 1.49 million enrolled in the party. And though the MassGOP gained several thousand voters, it actually lost more in the same time frame, when 5,911 quit the party to be unenrolled.

I have been a lifelong Independent Voter from MA. HOWEVER, in 2000 when George W. Bushie was running I registered Republican to try and deny him by Voting for McCain....ok, you can applaud. I just had a feeling. I switched back after, now I get tons of Robo calls from Republican Politicians, still on their lists.

Independents can vote in the Mass. Republican Primary.

Democrats can not.

It is likely that many of these turncoats are trying to game the system.

I was thinking that, too. In my state you don't have to register for anything. You just go vote. But apparently other states have more restrictive requirements. WHAT IF these 20,000 voters are switching over to Independent so they can vote for Trump, THEN switch back after the election. Their thinking might be that Trump is a loser, and if they can get him the nomination, it will be easier for Hildabeast to win.

In my state that's what we'd do every election: Vote for the weakest of the opposing party in the primary hoping to gain an advantage in the General.

I don't know if this is the case here. Has there any polling been done to ascertain why these 20K shifted?

Seems the anti cop BLM free life for everyone from any country party has left behind some hard working blue collar types.

Considering the percentage of voters it actually represents compared to other registered Democrats, it's insignificant.

It's still anyone's guess as to how this may go.

Almost got too carried away again but I think I'm going to leave the political commentary to the unbiased professionals in the MSM from here on in and simply sit back and enjoy the show.

This is what came to my mind. Especially since Independents can vote in Mass. primaries.

I've never been affiliated and I've been thinking of registering as a Republican to vote in the primary in my state if Kasich hasn't suspended his campaign by then.

Interesting assumption considering only 6k people voted for Clinton in the Nevada caucus.
