Charts of the Day: % Democrats Falls to 8-Year Low
Since November 2002, Rasmussen has tracked partisan trends based on monthly surveys of 15,000 adults, and this is from the latest report on March 1:
"The number of Republicans in the country was virtually unchanged in February, while the number of Democrats fell to 32.4%, a new low for the third month in a row (see top chart above). During February, 36.0% of Americans considered themselves Republicans. That’s up from 35.9% in January and the highest number of Republicans measured since December 2010."
As the percentage of Democrats has fallen to an eight-year low since 2004, the Republican-Democrat split has been shifting towards a Republican advantage and reached a record high in February of +3.6% (36% - 32.4%).
Meanwhile, Obama's Intrade odds of re-election remain steady at 60%.
