NEW GALLUP POLL: More Americans Identify As Democrats As Republican Party Sheds Voters

A new Gallup poll shows Democrats hold their largest advantage over Republicans in nearly a decade. Under President Joe Biden’s leadership the economy is on the path to recovery, and more Americans are getting vaccinated, seeing money in their pockets, and returning to normalcy – an incredibly popular and bipartisan agenda.

With bipartisan support for the Biden-Harris agenda, steady leadership, and a Republican Party with no message, more Americans are finding a home in the Democratic Party and leaving the Republican Party.

USA Today: “Gallup poll shows largest increase in Democratic Party affiliation in a decade”

Washington Post: “The Democratic advantage in party identification has gotten a lot wider”

Gallup: “In Gallup polling throughout the first quarter of 2021, an average of 49% of U.S. adults identified with the Democratic Party or said they are independents who lean toward the Democratic Party. That compares with 40% who identified as Republicans or Republican leaners. The nine-percentage-point Democratic advantage is the largest Gallup has measured since the fourth quarter of 2012.”

Bloomberg: “Gallup said the jump comes mostly from Republicans leaving the party at the end of President Donald Trump’s tenure. Only 25% of U.S. adults firmly identify with the Republicans, down from 29% late last year.”

The Biden-Harris agenda remains broadly popular, and as we turn toward the American Jobs Plan, Americans on both sides of the aisle continue to rally around the President’s bold agenda.

Politico’s Sam Stein: “If you look at the specific areas that Biden is plugging away at, roads, bridges, et cetera, 86% Democratic support, 69% independent support, 71% Republican support. You get down to other things like improving schools, 87% Democratic support, 63% independent support, and so on.”
