Laura C: You obviously didn't get the memo, we are no longer discussing any polls where Trump is ahead. It was predicted that he would drop. He supposedly dropped in the one isolated poll so we are supposed to cling to that poll ignoring all others. I'll let you know if anything changes.

That's all good and dandy except that less than 40% of Americans now identify as Republicans.

Really? If that's true then I bet less than 40% of Americans identify as Democrats. 1/3 liberal, 1/3 conservative, and 1/3 swing voters up for grabs. But if most states do not have open primaries, it doesn't matter right now the overall percentage of Americans per party, just who that party will put up to be the nominee.

A Deep Dive Into Party Affiliation | Pew Research Center

From a Pew poll in April:

Total Democrats + Dem leaning Independents= 48%
Total Republicans + R leaning Independents= 39%


The number of true non-aligned voters is tiny.

If you take the leaners out and just count by Party ID and Independent:

R= 23%
D= 32%
I= 39%

Among N/H whites:

R= 30%
D= 25%
I= 40%

Among Blacks:

R= 5%
D= 64%
I= 26%

Among Hispanics:

R= 13%
D= 34%
I= 44%

Among Asians

R= 11%
D= 37%
I= 46%

Not sure if it's related or purely coincidental, but the low point for the Democrats in the last 4 elections was the 48.2% of the populat vote won by John Kerry, which matches the percentage of Democrats and leaners in this poll. Over the past 4 POTUS elections, the Democrat average is 50.13% while the R average is 47.84%.

Apparently, based on what didn't come out of the mouths of CNBC moderators tonight, I didn't get the memo that TRADE was no longer a part of a business debate, either.

Depending on what poll you look at and they mean nothing. I'm a registered Democrat but I consider myself more of an Independent since the party went to h*ll. I'm in a blue state and of everyone I know - there is only one devote Democrat who is happy with everything Obama has done. Most of my friend and co-workers - although registered Democrat - vote for the best candidate - no matter what party. Most have turned their backs on Hillary after what she didn't do for our state - and are leaning on voting 3rd party or Republican.

nope, he dropped in more than one poll, but you choose to see only that one. Plus his numbers in many polls, whether he is leading or not, show his % dropping. You sound like him, only the polls that show him ahead by 10% or more are right. I am guessing you will be one of those who say, he won last night?
