There are roughly 24-thousand Democrats (24,414), 23-thousand (23,248) Republicans, and 14-thousand (14,203) with no party affiliation. That’s likely because Donald Trump has virtually clinched the Republican nomination, while Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are still battling on the Democratic side.
