After falling for two straight months, the number of Americans who consider themselves Republicans jumped nearly three points in August.
During August, 37.6% of Americans considered themselves Republicans. Thats up from 34.9% in July and 35.4% in June. Its also the largest number of Republicans ever recorded by Rasmussen Report since monthly tracking began in November 2002. The previous peak for the GOP was 37.3% in September 2004.

History of Party Trends
Intersting that the GOP shows about 4% more than the Rats yet the lapdog media polls always way oversamples Rats.
Ride the tide.
As always, bad news for DemocRats is good news for America.
A swing of nearly 12 points from November, 2008. That’s very encouraging.
here’s the money trends:

I really hope this is true, but I don’t know.
If we blow the Kenyan out of the water on election day, I will believe it. Until then, I’ll keep a healthy skepticism and keep working like we are 10 points down.
If so, than how does that affect the polls? Should the sample rate be changed?
[ A swing of nearly 12 points from November, 2008. Thats very encouraging. ]
Yah, especially when most media polls are using the 2008 turnout model.
“I’ll be damned, we’re Republicans!”
Are they still polling the dead.
You nailed it. This would make ALL of the current flood of “polls” wrong. Oversampling DemocRATS. This explains why the state run “media” continues to think Barry is unbeatable.
Funny, that’s exactly what popped into my head when I saw this poll. The historical trend is encouraging. Now if we could just stop Rat vote fraud.
Finally, a stimulus for which Obama can honestly claim credit. :)
LOL! Very good!
Interesting, that since the Tea Party started to make gains in the Republican party and influencing it’s governance, it has picked up members. Exactly opposite of the spew coming from the media.
