Palin, McCain, Obama Yield Surge in Republican Identification

Ed Morrissey of Hot Air notes a USA Today article that reports a new survey (h/t Larwyn).

"In the new survey, more voters call themselves Republicans. Now 48% say they’re Democrats or lean to the Democratic Party; 47% say they’re Republicans or lean to the GOP.

"Not since February 2005, right after Bush’s second inauguration, have Republicans been within a single point of Democrats in party identification.
What’s more, voters by 48%-45% support the Democratic candidate in their congressional district, the party’s narrowest advantage this year."

I can't wait until the left gets its wish and Obama starts talking about the issues. Republican identification will soar to 80%. Only the rich and the idle will remain as Democrats.
