Gallup: Amount of Americans identifying themselves as Democrat ties 22 year low. Why?

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.

  1. More people are becoming Independents.

  2. I’d say people are realizing the two-party system is not solving problems.

  3. Glenn Beck for TRUTH in media

    Glenn Beck woke people up and the result was the TEA party. 45 DECLARED COMMUNIST GOALS IN AMERICA – These were stated in 1963

    See How Many Goals the Communists have accomplished:
    To view all 45 see: http://www. rense. com/general32/americ. htm

    11. Promote the U. N. as the only hope for mankind.

  4. people are disenchanted with Both parties, what you need is a viable third party (not the Tea Party I did say viable)

  5. Amazing what all that international banker and corporate money can buy for the Republicans, isn’t? That, coupled with non-stop conservative slant and outright lying from our media.

    Nevertheless, from your link: “Democrats still outnumber Republicans. ”

    Registered Democrats (2004): 72 Million (the most registered voters of any political party in the world)
    Registered Republicans (2004): 55 Million
    Registered Independents (2004): 42 Million

    Number of Registered Republicans Falls To Lowest Point In Nearly Two Years – Unaffiliated Voters Outnumber GOPers, Gain on Democrats

    Because progressives drove the party over the cliff. They wanted Marxism and the majority of America told them to take a hike.

  7. it’s no surprise at all. . . unemployment at 10%. . . . troops fighting in 2 countries (supposedly only 1, but iraq still is a challenge). . . . of course people are pissed at the party in power. . . . the same would be true if mccain was president now and republicans controlled both houses.

    i don’t think there will be a surge of a 3rd party candidate like donald trump or mayor bloomberg even in the mdist of our problems. . . . the powers that be that control all the cash in the political parties would never allow it. . . it’s a 2-party system for as long as the U. S. exists. . . . we have to deal with it

    if the economy improves, as is expected this year, obama’s ratings will shoot up and he will get re-elected (barring some poorly managed event like terrorism or another oil spill that he handles somewhat poorly). . . if the economy still sucks, he loses. the poll overall does not tell us much.
