Most States Are Still Blue

Posted by | February 2, 2010 18:22 | Filed under: Top Stories

Contrary to what you might think, given recent Republican victories, a recent Gallup Poll shows most states remain blue.

The compiled results of Gallup’s year-long polling of more than 353,849 adults in all 50 states last year and the District of Columbia, found that far more states are safe havens for Democrats than for the GOP.

Democrats can count 24 states solidly in their column, according to Gallup, as they have more than a 10 percentage point party affiliation advantage there. Another 10 can be counted as “lean” Democratic, with a 5 percentage point advantage.

Republicans, meanwhile, can only point to four “solid” states and only one state leaning Republican.

Gallup identified 12 states as competitive with no clear advantage for either party.
