Pew Foundation Poll... Repubs Gaining Among Whites

Republicans gain ground among young white voters and the poor.

ABC News - New analysis by Pew Foundation on voter identification finds that, not surprisingly, “the electorate’s partisan affiliations have shifted significantly since Obama won office nearly three years ago.”

One of the most notable shifts is the GOP gain among white voters, most specifically “the young and poor.”

“A seven-point Democratic advantage among whites under age 30 three years ago has turned into an 11-point GOP advantage today. And a 15-point Democratic advantage among whites earning less than $30,000 annually has swung to a slim four-point Republican edge today.”

The last time that Republicans had this level of support among young white voters was 2002-2004, which was, of course, the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

The study also suggests that more voters than ever (34 percent) identify themselves as Independent. Just 28 percent say they are Republican. Another 34 percent say they identify as Democrat.

Of course we can anticipate the shrill screeching of liberals... Raaaaacism.
