by Placerville Newswire / Feb 23, 2016 / comments

The California Republican party shrunk by about 400,000 registered voters, or 8 percent, during the last four years, even as the number of Democrats stayed flat and unaffiliated voters grew, according to figures released Monday by the California Secretary of State.

About 4.76 million California voters are registered as Republicans, down from 5.17 million at this point in 2012. Republicans now make up about 27.6 percent of voters, down from 30.4 percent four years prior. No county in the state has a majority of voters registered as Republicans.
