It should be especially concerning for Democrats that they’re losing their registration advantage to Republicans in the midst of a competitive Democratic Presidential primary. One would think that flocks of voters would rush to register as Democrats in order to cast votes in the primary, but if anything is occurring, it seems to be the opposite.
More Americans now identify as Republicans than they do as Democrats, according to new polling regarding party affiliation conducted by Gallup.
According to the polling, conducted on January 16th-19th, 30% of American identify as Republicans. 27% identify as Democrats. The largest category consists of independents, who form 42% of registered voters. Independents have consistently made up the largest category of American voters for decades.
The development represents a rarity in American politics, as generally Democrats have a numerical advantage in terms of party registration throughout recent political history.
