Americans rejecting Republican party (or are they lying to Gallup?)
There’s no lack of irony in the fact that two top stories today are political haymaking in New Jersey and a record percentage of Americans telling Gallup that they are political party independent.
Combine that with a record low saying that they are “Republicans”.
Here’s what folks are saying on social networks and blogs.

Gallup announces the winner for political party of the year, does this mean a rise in apathy or centrist politicians? http://t.co/pKI4n2lzYw

Gallup says "US voters are less anchored to the parties than ever before." Gallup is so wrong . . . again.

What do you think? Is Christie’s behavior a symptom? Or is Gallup full of it?
