Republican Party Shrinks

May 19, 2009

At the Daily Beast, a short comment about the Republican party’s decline in popularity…with only 27% of poll respondents identifying as Republican:

Michael Steele has an op-ed in Politico today announcing that “The Republican Party Turns a Corner.” Uh, Michael… According to a new poll from Gallup, the “movement away from the GOP has occurred among nearly every major demographic subgroup. Since the first year of George W. Bush’s presidency in 2001, the Republican Party has maintained its support only among frequent churchgoers, with conservatives and senior citizens showing minimal decline.” Losses are particularly large among college graduates, whose support for the Republican Party has dropped 10 percent since 2001. Only 27 percent of respondents identified as Republican Party members.
