Democrats Party ID at Record Low

Posted by iusbvision on January 26, 2010

One of the key indicators, and perhaps the key indicator, of the political mood of voters is the party identification poll. This is the measure used often by political scientists who try to get to the real mood instead of making a poll to make news to be spun and consumed by the “masses”.

Rasmussen Poll:

In December, the number of Americans identifying themselves as Democrats fell to the lowest level recorded in more than seven years of monthly tracking by Rasmussen Reports.

Currently, 35.5% of American adults view themselves as Democrats. That’s down from 36.0 a month ago and from 37.8% in October. Prior to December, the lowest total ever recorded for Democrats was 35.9%, a figure that was reached twice in 2005. See the History of Party Trends from January 2004 to the present.

*Rasmussen Reports tracks this information based on telephone interviews with approximately 15,000 adults per month and has been doing so since November 2002. The margin of error for the full sample is less than one percentage point, with a 95% level of confidence.
