    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll - Rasmussen Reports™

    The number of Republicans in the country inched up half a percentage point last month while the number of Democrats slipped by a similar amount. Overall, 34.3% of Americans now consider themselves to be Republicans while 33.1% are Democrats.

    This whole deal with the bunch of apparently ignorant, unimpressive Republican candidates is a right wing connivance to create complacency in the Democratic party and consequently to keep them from contributing some little bit to the campaign and to keep them away from the polls on election day. The election is still a year away. Let's all contribute and work hard but above all else...show up on election day.

    With a margin of error at least of 3%, those statistical differences are meaningless.

    It's not about the difference, its about the trend.

    I finally have something I can thank Obama for consequently.

    What trend? All this shows is a statistically insignificant change. That does not establish a trend. It establishes stagnation.

    These changes are cyclical. They go back and forth every few years.
