America is becoming a more Republican nation

by NW Spotlight

Richard Florida has an article this month in the Atlantic that talks about the country’s shift since the 2008 election of President Obama. Some key findings:

  • “In just three years, Republican identification jumped by more than five percent in 20 states.”
  • “Other Obama states that saw big increases in Republican identification include …Oregon (+5 percent)…”
  • “Rising Republicanism appears to be more tied to voters’ perceptions of the future of the economy.”
  • “The percentage of Americans who say they lean Republican has increased in 47 of the 50 states”
