Skip to comments.Partisan Trends: Number of Republicans in America Reaches Record High
Posted on 09/23/2012 5:59:38 PM PDT by rightcoast
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. See History of Party Trends.
And we still can’t beat the 47% in an election? What gives?!
... all the while the number of Republicans in presidential polling is at record lows. Go figure...
And maybe that is why Romney is up an average of 7.8% in the polls. See www.unskewedpolls.com
