Gallup: 2012 Electorate More Republican than 2004
This morning, Gallup released a bombshell survey of likely voters this November. It wasn't a horse race poll, i.e which candidate is ahead, but rather a look at the underlying demographics that will make up the electorate this November. They slap the survey with a very misleading headline, "2012 U.S. Electorate Looks Like 2008." While this is true in many respects, it obscures one very big difference. For the first time in a presidential election, more Republicans will vote than Democrats.
