    I don't know how many people "lots of folks" involves, but I hope it's enough to boot his ass out.

    If they are "registering" then they would not have voted for him at all. You only register people who weren't on the rolls to begin with.

    So explain again how that translates into "Seems "the One" has lost lots of folks who actually believed him in '08". :confused:

    That's not entirely true. You fill out the same form if you are changing affiliation.

    No, it says changes IN registration, not changes TO registration.

    It means that the number of people registering with the parties is down from past years.
