Gallup: Democratic Party Affiliation Edge Over GOP Grows

Gallup: Democratic Party Affiliation Edge Over GOP Grows

Forty-five percent of U.S. adults identify with the Democrats, compared to 38 percent who favor the GOP — the largest gap in party affiliation in two years, a new Gallup poll revealed.

"The growing Democratic advantage in recent months is mostly attributable to a decline in Republican affiliation rather than an increase in Democratic affiliation," wrote Gallup's Jeffrey Jones.

President Donald Trump's unpopularity is considered to be a factor in the decline in those identifying with the Republican Party, according to Jones.

Since February, Trump's approval rating has remained at near 40 percent — "well below average for presidents historically, and especially for those in their first few months in office."

The last time Democrats enjoyed a larger lead over Republicans was in September 2009 when they held a nine-point advantage, Jones reported.
