Americans were more likely to support the Republican Party than the Democratic Party towards the end of 2021 than at any point since 1995, a poll released Monday shows.
Forty-seven percent of Americans described themselves as Republicans or Republican-leaning to Gallup between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2021, compared to 42% who described themselves as Democrats or Democratic-leaning, the largest gap the pollster has measured in favor of Republicans since the first quarter of 1991.
The results marked a dramatic flip from the first quarter of 2021, as 49% of Americans identified themselves as Democrats or Democratic-leaning, compared to only 40% who identified themselves as Republican leaning. That margin was also the largest Gallup has measured in favor of Democrats in the poll’s history.
Gallup polled 12,416 adults across all 50 states and Washington, DC throughout 2021, for a margin of error of one percent.
