The number of self-identified Democrats falls below 50% for the first time since 2005:
"Forty-nine percent of adults said they were Democrats or leaned Democratic while 40.7 percent of adults polled said they were Republican or leaned Republican. By comparison, 51.5 percent of adults identified as Democratic in 2008 while 39.8 percent said they were Republican.
Gallup's analysts noted that the numbers are partially the result of a sharp decline in Democratic support over the course of 2009, President Barack Obama's first year in office."
Thanks Mr. President! You know, I'm thinking more and more that President Obama was the creation of Karl Rove. Genius! Finally getting around to that Republican majority thing he always talked about.
