Self-Identified Democrats Growing Scarcer, Poll Finds

The number of people who call themselves Democrats is the lowest since the poll started in 1981.

After a difficult midterm election cycle for Democrats, the number of Americans identifying with the party is at an almost 34-year low, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll published Wednesday.

Twenty-six percent say they identify as Democrats, according to the poll. Forty-one percent identify as independents and 23 percent say they are Republicans.
