The Harris Poll - Party Affiliation and Political Philosophy Show Little Change

Latest polling: So moderates and liberals combined are by far the majority of the nation (combined at 59%), and self-identified democrats are 34% of the country versus 31% Republican.

"Democrats retain very small lead over Republicans, and conservatives outnumber liberals by 2-to-1, but still trail moderates.

U.S. adults are still almost equally divided between Democrats (34%) and Republicans (31%), with the Democrats maintaining a very small advantage. One quarter of all adults consider themselves Independents.

These are some of the results of Harris Poll surveys of a total of 10,012 U.S. adults conducted by telephone by Harris Interactive® between January and December 2004.

The Harris Poll® also found that conservatives continue to outnumber liberals by 36 to 18 percent but that the largest number of people think of themselves as moderates (41%). The remarkable thing about these numbers is how little they have changed over the past 30 to 40 years. Harris Interactive data over four decades show that the average numbers of moderates have remained at 40 or 41 percent, and that conservatives have only varied between 32 and 38 percent, while liberals have remained at a steady 18 percent since the 1970s."
