St. Johns Democrats Still A Third Party: Inept Leadership Continuing Decline in Registration

St. Johns County Democrats are now a third party, and the trend continues unabated:
Republicans: 84,625 51.98%
Others: 39,810 24.45%
Democrats: 38,358 23.56%
Total: 162,793
Source: St. Johns County Supervisor of Elections, as of October 31, 2015.
We first reported this datum on this blog on March 22, 2015, and since that time -- the decline since then has been a full quarter of a percentage point.
That's okay, we still have a headquarters run by Undercover Republicans.
And we're one of fourteen (14) Florida counties where No Party Affiliation voters outnumber Democrats.
Inexcusably inept.
By the way, mirabile dictu, wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles, The St. Augustine Record finally noticed!
But it got the numbers wrong, stating in a November 1, 2015 editorial:
"The county has 84,625 registered Republicans. For the first time during an election, the number of independent voters in the county has eclipsed the Democrats — 39,810 to 39,358 (sic). That’s significant." Actually more significant than the Record stated: The Record is off by 1000.
That would be my guess -- an inability to perform mathematical functions, something which most politicians and journalists suffer.
What do you reckon?
