Political Party Affiliation Now Tied – 11 Point Swing Towards GOP

Political party affiliation has dramtically shifted away from the Democrats in this latest Gallup Poll.

The question:

In politics, as of today, do you consider yourself a Republican, a Democrat, or an independent? (Asked of independents: As of today, do you lean more to the Democratic Party or the Republican Party?


Quite an interesting trend if this poll is not an outlier. Interestingly, the same thing happened after Bill Clinton was elected President. In 1994, the first election after Clinton’s 1992 election, the GOP captured the House majority for the first time in over 40 years.

Is the reason that American voters prefer divided government with no one party in complete control or has there been a Democrat, Obama overload?

Or just bad data.

You be the judge. But it does offer the GOP some hope.

Stay tuned……
