1. Any idea what the breakdown of non-party affiliation was in 2016?

How they broke for Clinton vs trump?

2. Trump 53-37.

If you count unaffiliated as independent.

3. Can we presume that unaffiliated/independent voters have not been indoctrinated into the Trump cult?

I think so, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this group is going to flip the other way and vote for Biden, 53-37.

5. Yes. I don't think Trump will do nearly as well.

4. I would expect it to break closer to 50/50 this election

More young people are registering unaffiliated and tend to vote for climate and social justice issues. NC has a large active and retired military population due to all the bases here. I'm guessing the "losers and suckers" name calling from Trump along with the Russian bounties on US soldiers which he didn't denounce are going to lose him a lot of votes from the military. We'll have to wait and see.

TOTAL 2,437,417 100.0
