Partisan Trends: Number of Democrats Falls to All-Time Low
rasmussenreports.com ^ | January 02, 2012 | Rasmussen

Posted on 01/02/2012 10:28:48 AM PST by Berlin_Freeper

The number of Republicans in the country increased by a percentage point in December, while the number of Democrats fell back two points to the lowest level ever recorded by Rasmussen Reports.

During December, 35.4% of Americans considered themselves Republicans. That’s up from 34.3% in November and just below the high for the year of 35.6% reached in May.

At the same time, just 32.7% of adults said they were Democrats, down from 34.9% in November. The previous low for Democrats was 33.0% in August of this year.

Good news. However the polls seem to have a few more dimoKKKRATS than Republicans in their sample rate.

It doesn’t matter how low it goes. The Rats still have dead people, illegals etc.

Do you ever wonder if Obama is sick of the White House? He doubles down on Marxism as a pay off and kiss off to his enablers, gets out in November, to golf forever with Soros, leaving as a martyr to the Marxist cause?

What happened????

People like James Carville predicted that, in the aftermath of the 2008 election, that Democrats would rule for 40 years.

Liberals are telling us now that the 2010 mid term elections were not a reflection of voter sentiment. And that Obama’s popularity is on the rise. They say Obama will win re-election, and that the Democrats will even re-take the House, and put Nancy Pelosi back in the Speaker’s chair.

So how does all of this square with record numbers of voters shunning the Democrat party??????

I loved how a 2% rise is Obama’s favorables was touted as a surge in nearly every media outlet. Seemed like a coordinated effort to me, but for exactly what purpose, I’m not certain.

Yes.

Also there are some who are like typical communists “The ideas are good, they just weren’t implemented properly”. Mad at the outcome, but still holding with the flawed premises they metastasize to other parties.

Yep, that was amazing to see the MSM jump all over the uptick in Obama’s poll numbers. They will jump on any little thing that is favorable to Obama and Democrats, while minimizing or ignoring unfavorable matters.

The locusts are descending on the Republican Party, after they sucked all the usable juices out of the DemocRAT party.

It’s an impressive achievement, considering Jimmy Carter was once the POTUS.

A poll of dead people has indicated that while they still vote Democrat in droves, an increasing number say they plan to stay home and molder this year.

I don't know the methodology of this Ras poll, but it has been a very rare occurrence, since the 1920s, for Republicans to outnumber Democrats nationally. You can be sure that it is a reflection of general dissatisfaction with Obama.

When you combine this with the fact that Republicans are more motivated and enthusiastic about voting this November, it certainly doesn't bode well for Obama, even given his machine's capability of perpetuating some degree of fraud.

Hope it doesn’t stop. But what does the poll say about Republican party membership?

It’s probably not gonna matter. If Romney gets the nomination, Trump or Paul or both will run as an Independent. Obozo will be around for another 4 years. That should give him enough time to finish destroying this nation.

If the Progressives are not careful, there will be no Democrat party left to hide behind.
