From Bob Mercer at Pure Pierre Politics, he reports on how not many people are interested in being a Democrat in South Dakota:
South Dakota Democratic Party officials really need to answer to the public about why they can’t keep pace, at least proportionally, with the South Dakota Republican Party’s efforts on voter registration. The Democrats filled the ballot in the three statewide contests for U.S. Senate, U.S. House and state Public Utilities Commission. But since January, Republicans have added some 9,000 registered voters and Democrats have added about 1,700. The NPA/Independents have added about 6,000.
Those who complain about one-party rule of state government and Congress in South Dakota — and who favor ballot measures that would attempt to change the dominant roles of Republicans — need to realize the Republican brand right now in 2016 is nearly twice as popular than the Democrats and NPA/Independents combined.
That might be one reason that Democrats are trying to hide their party affiliation through promoting Amendment V.
