As Ye Sow, So Shall Ye Reap: The Republican Party Lost Five Percent of its Members Last Month

party affliliation, U.S. Party Preferences Have Swung Sharply Toward Democrats:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Since January, Americans’ party preferences have shifted dramatically in the Democratic Party’s direction. What had been a two-percentage-point Republican advantage in U.S. party identification and leaning has become an 11-point Democratic advantage, with more of that movement reflecting a loss in Republican identification and leaning (down eight points) than a gain in Democratic identification and leaning (up five points).

Currently, half of U.S. adults identify as Democrats (32%) or are independents who lean toward the Democratic Party (18%). Meanwhile, 39% identify as Republicans (26%) or are Republican leaners (13%).
