Gallup’s yearly measure of the way Americans identify themselves politically was released today. In 2010, the amount of Americans identifying themselves as Democrat tied the 22 year low of 31% set in 2003 and 1991. That is down 5% from the 36% recorded in 2008, at that time, a tie for a 22 year high.
While this may seem good for Republicans, the amount identifying themselves as Republican is still lower, 29%, only rising 1% in the past two years.
The amount identifying themselves as “independent” surged 3% in the past two years; going from 35% in 2008, to 38% today. This matches the 1994 result.
What does this mean for the future landscape of American politics? Are people starting to think both parties don’t work?
I say 22 year low because this poll has been taken for 22 years.
@Iris. I said that. Read up there ^^
@Iris. That was 7 years ago. Can you show me something from today’s time? Also that is a blog post, not a reliable news source and is 8 months old.
