transnational corporations.

California Democratic, Republican Voter Registrations Decline Sharply

Californians who have registered to vote since the November election
are increasingly turning away from both the Democratic and Republican
parties. There's been "a 10-point drop for both Democratic and
Republican registrations," says Paul Mitchell, who tracks voter
activity for consulting firm Political Data, Inc. Ben Adler Capital
Public Radio.

More voters are registering Green, Libertarian, or "No Party Preference."
