Gallup:”Democratic, Republican Identification Near Historical Lows”

PRINCETON, N.J. — In 2015, for the fifth consecutive year, at least four in 10 U.S. adults identified as political independents. The 42% identifying as independents in 2015 was down slightly from the record 43% in 2014. This elevated percentage of political independents leaves Democratic (29%) and Republican (26%) identification at or near recent low points, with the modest Democratic advantage roughly where it has been over the past five years.

The results of the latest poll show declining loyalty to the two major parties. The growing importance of independent voters provides fertile ground for a third party challenge in 2016
