More Nebraskans Registered As Independents
Red, White & Blue 2012
More Nebraskans are shunning both political parties and registering as independents. More than 227,000 voters are now registered as a "nonpartisan". That's a 16 percent increase since the last presidential election. University of Nebraska at Omaha political science professor Paul Landow says the shift reflects a national frustration with traditional party politics.
