More Bad News For The GOP

This bubbled up a few days ago but in case you missed it, Gallup has some new poll data out:
The decline in Republican Party affiliation among Americans in recent years is well documented, but a Gallup analysis now shows that this movement away from the GOP has occurred among nearly every major demographic subgroup. Since the first year of George W. Bush's presidency in 2001, the Republican Party has maintained its support only among frequent churchgoers, with conservatives and senior citizens showing minimal decline.
They have charts and numbers to back this up. And they sum things up with:
The Republican Party clearly has lost a lot of support since 2001, the first year of George W. Bush's administration. Most of the loss in support actually occurred beginning in 2005, after Hurricane Katrina and Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court -- both of which created major public relations problems for the administration -- and amid declining support for the Iraq war. By the end of 2008, the party had its worst positioning against the Democrats in nearly two decades.
I'm sure it's all the fault of the lib'rel media.

And yet, Democrats voted against funding the closing of Gitmo and for the right to carry concealed weapons in National Parks. I am really not convinced Harry Reid is the correct person to be Senate Majority Leader.
