Gallup: Only 31% Say They're Dems -- Tied For Lowest Level In 22 Years


While Democratic identification is down, it is still higher than the number of Americans who consider themselves Republicans. The Gallup average pegged Republican Party identification at 29% for the year, two points higher than the record low 27% the GOP averaged last year.

Meanwhile, the percentage of self-identified Independents is on the rise, climbing three points in the last two years to 38%. Consistently, a plurality of Americans have identified themselves as Independents in the Gallup poll.
