PUMA Politics: Pumas Making a Difference?
An interesting tidbit that I am sure the Obamanation and the DNC are probably having totally secret squirrel meetings about. According to Rasmussen this morning:
During July, the number of Americans who consider themselves to be Democrats fell two percentage points to 39.2%. That’s the first time since January that the number of Democrats has fallen below 41%.
While the number of Democrats declined, there was virtually no change in the number of Republicans. In July, 31.6% said they were Republicans, the fourth straight month that number has been below 31.4% and 31.6%.
The Democrats now have a 7.6 percentage point advantage over the Republicans, down from a 9.5 percentage point advantage in June and 10.1 percentage points in May.
August 1, 2008 Republican Democrat Other R – D Quarterly 2008 July 31.6% 39.2% 29.2% -7.6% Jun 31.5% 41.0% 27.5% -9.5% -9.9% May 31.6% 41.7% 26.6% -10.1% Apr 31.4% 41.4% 27.2% -10.0% Mar 32.1% 41.1% 26.8% -9.1% -8.1% Feb 31.8% 41.5% 26.7% -9.7% Jan 33.1% 38.7% 28.2% -5.6%
If the Borg Collective thinks that they will win the White House in November with more numbers tanking, they are definitely on something stronger than just the koolaid.
PUMAs knew that the snowball was rolling and getting larger, only now is it finally showing up in black and white for all to see. If you want to add your voice to the growing movement, go here and here.
UPDATE: Aug 4th, 2008: Rasmussen is reporting that John McCain has taken the lead when leaners are included, go here.
