Democrats Drop 300,000 Registered Voters in Florida; Republicans Gain

Not to mention the disparity in "voter intensity".
Some 300,000 registered Democrats have vanished in the key swing state of Florida since the 2008 elections, new official figures show.
Fewer than 4.6 million will be able to vote in the state's Democratic primaries next week. That's down from 4.9 million who were eligible in 2008 when a bright young candidate called Barack Obama was carrying the party flag.

Now, after nearly four years of Obama in the White House, enthusiasm for the party has waned in the battleground state with the big electoral prize, even as the state's population continues to rise.
