As of Sept. 30, 2004 (the last date of published totals), the PGP stood at 13,977 registrants. By comparison, the Libertarian Party has 16,236 registrants. Back in January we almost caught and passed the Libertarian Party. Now we are 2,260 registrants short of being the 3rd largest party in Oregon.
Much of the drop can be attributed to Greens registering Democrat so they could vote for Kucinich. I'm sure the CounterPunch / Nader Campaign attacks also led to some members leaving the party and going independent.
For some historical perspective, here are some of our registration totals for a few months in 2004:
January = 14,575
April= 13,683 (a loss of 892)
July= 13,557 (a loss from January of 1018 and a loss from April of 126)
August= 13,750 (a loss from January of 825 and a gain from July of 193)
September= 13,977 (a loss from January of 598 and a gain from August of 227)
