Skip to comments.Trump switches voter registration to 'independent'
Posted on 12/23/2011 11:18:12 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY
Donald Trump, who recently pulled out of moderating a Newsmax-sponsored GOP debate that only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum would commit to, has switched his voter registration to "independent," a source confirms.
The move was made yesterday, and will make Trump a registered "blank" used interchangeably with "registered independent" in New York political parlance but not right away.
A Board of Elections spokeswoman hasn't responded to a call for comment about when it would take effect, but sources familiar with the city's BoE rules say that Trump missed the cutoff allowing his registration switch to take effect for next year. This means that, while he has filed the paperwork, he can technically still vote in the GOP primary and won't become an independent until after the November 2012 general election.
Trump has not been a lifelong Republican, and in some ways his move mirrors the path that Mike Bloomberg took Democrat to Republican to independent.

The modern PT Barnum strikes again.
Santorum hates the 10th Amendment.. By the way, people like Trump speak about unfair trade just to fool dorks like you.. They really don’t give a damn..
Santorum hates the 10th Amendment?
Lol it’s comedy hour on FR.
Obama trump card coming on line
Yes.. He does.. He thinks that abortion should be a federal issue.. It is not.. States issue..
Trump is getting ready to help Obama be win again.
Why did Santorum kiss up to Trump?
“Santorum Defends Trump Debate, Blasts Critics”
Is Santorum just a bad judge of character and one of those in the GOP that you think “better wake up”?
Why would we want someone who’s so easily fooled by such an obvious flimflam to be our President?
Naturally Trump is a phoney. On the otherhand, would you like to belong to the same party as that asshat boehner?
I’m thinking that it may be past the time when we need to start ignoring Donald Trump. He is not going to do our candidates anything but harm and that is looking more and more like his intention. Perhaps we have a Clinton-Pero-like Grand Bargain that he has struck with Jarret-Axelrod-Obama and that is just the way it is. Add that to a likely Ron Paul third party run and you can see a lot of GOP votes getting sucked out from under us.
And not a word about a third party run on the Dem side.
Would you happen to have a cite?
The Constitution is silent on abortion. Regardless of what liberals say.
I’d be interested to see the particulars if you might have any please, thanks.
“And not a word about a third party run on the Dem side.”
The GOP simply is not getting, that being wallflowers is not a winning political platform.
What do Trump and Paul have in common?
They say EXACTLY what they mean. People respond to that. Especially when much of what is being said, is what they’ve been thinking all along.
Boehner by contrast, doesn’t say exactly what he means.
Trump’s stash is bigger than Obama’s. He could win;)
One could say that even though abortion is not mentioned in the Constitution, it is forbidden by it.
This Government was formed to protect our God Given Rights, the first among those rights is the Right to Life:
Form the preamble of the US Constitution: ...Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Abortion is a Federal issue an is unconstitutional imo.
Right, why should anyone pay attention to that silly stuff like "no person shall be... deprived of life... without due process of law", in the United States Constitution.
Sorry but Trump or no Trump (Bridge reference not intended) the Republicans are doing just fine on that job as it is. No one is better at taking a winning hand and folding than the Pubs.
