Cruz’s NY Trump Card? Party Registration Rules May be Achilles Heel for The Donald
Strict voter registration rules for New York’s primary could end up badly hurting Donald Trump. Voters previously unaffiliated with a political party were required to register with a party before Oct. 9th of last year in order to vote in this year’s primary.
This spells bad news for Trump who draws significant support from new and unaffiliated voters.
How likely is it that Trump was able to notify unaffiliated voters of the deadline and mobilize them to register with the Republican party? Not likely, says RedState, noting that Trump hadn’t officially started a campaign operation in the state until Wednesday.
It turns out the strict registration rules are even more of an issue in a state like New York, where 27 percent of the state’s potential voters were registered outside the Republican and Democratic parties as of April 2016.
