According to multiple Gallup polls this year, Republicans are now slightly outnumbering Democrats, ending the almost four decades-long liberal majority trend.
Gallup’s most recent poll in July revealed that the country is now 27% Republican and 25% Democrat. However, when the poll considers independents who lean Republican, the number of conservatives comes out to 45% compared to 42% for Democrats.
The political shift to the GOP first happened in 2022. According to the Associated Press, those who have switched over to the Republicans side are considered “dangerous for Democrat” as the new conservatives point to a potentially significant shift in the political landscape.
