In February, the number of Democrats in the United States soared to the highest level ever measured by Rasmussen Reportsâ€”41.5%. In March, despite the squabbling among their leading Presidential candidates, the Democrats held on to those gains–41.1% now consider themselves Democrats. Those figures reflect a sharp increase from the 36.3% who considered themselves Democrats in December 2007. (see history from January 2004 to present).
The number of Republicans remained fairly steady in March at 32.1%. Thatâ€™s up just three-tenths of a percentage point from February but down two full points from 34.2% in December.
Here’s how it breaks out by gender…
The gains for the Democrats were especially strong among women. In March, 46% of women considered themselves to be Democrats, up from 40% in December. The number of women identifying themselves as Republicans fell from 33% to 30% during that same time frame.
Among men, 36% were Republicans in December and 34% said the same in March. The number of men who are Democrats increased from 33% in December to 36% in March.
Women are breaking big for the Dems. Could this be the Hillary effect?
Also, the fact that Dems finally have men on their side is pretty significant as well.
