Vote for a Republican But Not Be One?

October 21, 2009

From Rasmussen:  It seems the GOP is struggling to make up ground on the Democratic Party:

The GOP advantage over Democrats increased from two points to five in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot.

A national telephone survey shows that 42% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 37% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent.

Support for Democrats dropped two points this week, while support for the GOP slightly increased.

Independent voters heavily favor the GOP, 40% to 23%.

However, in September, for the second straight month, the number of Americans identifying themselves as Democrats inched up while the number of Republicans fell by half a percentage point.

The struggle for the GOP is to of course get the votes but also increase the GOP membership.
