Libertarian voter registration surges, but debates still exclude candidates

Libertarian Party voter registration has surged 92 percent in the last 10 years, according to Ballot Access News. The number of registered Democrats has declined 8 percent over that time, and Republican voter registration is down 5 percent. Democrats and Republicans are also being battered by people leaving their tribes to register as independents, who are up 19 percent in the last 10 years. Despite all this, the exclusion of viable Libertarian Party candidates from debates in contested elections is reaching new highs.
