California GOP on Path to Minor Party Status

"This would seem a moment of great opportunity for California Republicans. The state has become a national symbol of fiscal turmoil and dysfunction, the Legislature is nearly as unpopular as Congress and Democrats control every branch of government," the New York Times reports.

"But instead, the state party... is caught in a cycle of relentless decline, and appears in danger of shrinking to the rank of a minor party... Registered Republicans now account for just 30% of the California electorate, and are on a path that analysts predict could drop them to No. 3 in six years, behind Democrats, who currently make up 43%, and independent voters, with 21%."
