TPM: Party Identiication
This graphic has a slider so you can see the per cent of Democrats, Republicans and independents at a given point in time.
It is clear form the graph that people who were Republicans are exiting the party and probably becoming independent
Notice around the 4th quarter of 2011 where the read and yellow lines cross. The number of independents that increase reflect a parallel decrease in Republicans.
TPM sugests the rightward shit o the GOP has caused the drop in Republicans. This will have an impact on the 2012 elections.
