Since O’s election, Democratic ranks shrinking …

According to Rasmussen:

  • 35.4% of Americans consider themselves Republicans
  • 32.7% of adults say they are Democrats,
  • 32.0% say they are independents — not affiliated with either of the major political parties

Versus 2009 (end of Obama’s first year in office):

  • Democrats’ affiliation is down, 2.8 percentage points (about 8%)
  • Republicans’ affiliation is up 1.4 percentage points (about 4%)
  • Independents are up 1.4 percentage points (about 4%)

All of which squares with my observation that I haven’t run into a single McCain voter who says they’ll vote for Obama in 2012 … but, I’ve run into many Obama ‘08 voters who say they won’t vote for him again.
