New Poll: Fewer Americans Than Ever Want to be Associated with the Republican Party

A new Gallup poll shows that the percentage of Americans who identify as Republicans has dropped to a 25-year low of just 25 percent.

  • The percentage who identify as Democrats has stayed constant at 31 percent.
  • Gallup wrote: “Americans’ increasing shift to independent status has come more at the expense of the Republican Party than the Democratic Party.”

This drop comes as House Republicans continue to focus solely on their base and ignore bipartisan enthusiasm from voters who want commonsense steps to strengthen the middle class, like raising the minimum wage and extending unemployment insurance.
