Rob Christensen reports this a.m. that North Carolina has netted at least 110,000 new voters since December, "with a particularly sharp rise among unaffiliated voters, Democrats and black people."
"There is also anecdotal evidence that some Republicans are switching their registration to Democrat or unaffiliated to participate in the primaries," says Christensen.
Republican loyalists may want to believe those party switches are evidence that Rush Limbaugh's Operation Chaos is working. Doubtful. What may be at work is far more dangerous for the party of preemptive warfare, the attraction of actual possibility.
