Democrats unhinged are causing trend of voters to prefer Republicans
The outrageous behavior that we see so often from Democrats is repelling voters. Voters have been trending Republican since the election. Gallup’s party affiliation survey finds that on the eve of the election, 31% self-identified as Democrats and 27% as Republicans (36% said they were independents). With leaners, it was 46%-43%, Democrats. By early January, shortly before President Trump’s inauguration, that had flipped to 28%-25%, Republicans. With leaners, it was 44%-43%, favoring the GOP.
The numbers for February should be out soon. It will be interesting to see whether the GOP tide continues.
