Palm Beach high school students choose the Democrats

In an embarrassing defeat for the Palm Beach GOP, the Palm Beach Post reported that 1,871 high school students who recently registered to vote during a school event overwhelmingly chose the local Democratic Party.

The registration was part of a program overseen by county Supervisor of Elections Arthur Anderson. While the event carries little significance in the grand scheme of things, the registration numbers were good news for a local Democratic Party that longs for something positive to report. The local GOP consistently outperforms their counterparts in fundraising and organization, and the Palm Beach Democrats continue to receive embarrassing coverage in the local press.

During the school program, the Democrats gained 898 new voters (48%), the Republicans signed up 300 (16%), and 673 (36%) students chose no party affiliation. Democrats hold a 45% to 32% advantage in voter registration over the GOP in Palm Beach County.

This is kind of stupid. Who cares? The Dems in Palm Beach are horrible. This story doesn't change that.

The Dems in Palm Beach County are a total joke. They are rivaled closely by the Republicans in Broward County. Who cares.
