Independents Greatly Outnumber Self-Identified Democrats And Republicans: Democrats At The Lowest Point In The Past 27 Years

From Gallup, "Democratic, Republican Identification Near Historical Lows" by Jeffrey M. Jones:

This elevated percentage of political independents leaves Democratic (29%) and Republican (26%) identification at or near recent low points....
