ABC News is reporting that in their recent (today) poll, a mere 21% of all Americans now identify themselves as Republican.
That’s down a little.
Data and charts are here.
And my favorite one is at left. Click to enlarge.
“Obama also has the fortune to preside at a time of continuing disaffection with the Republican Party, now deep in the political wilderness. Allegiance to the GOP has been declining since 2004; today just 21 percent of Americans identify themselves as Republicans, the fewest since September 1983 in ABC/Post polls.”
I can’t see how it can trend lower. 21% of all American voters is roughly the total population of southern white men and church ladies.
