Is this true?
For Democrats, the ramifications of the great sorting-out are mostly negative as there are three conservatives for every two liberals.
I guess I knew that self-identified conservatives outnumber self-identified liberals, but I'm also used to seeing numbers showing the Democratic Party to be larger than the Republican Party.
This is interesting, from Barone:
There has been a Great Sorting Out, with many people changing party identification, and the winners from this process have been the Republicans: Galston and Kamarck show that 38 percent of Republicans say they used to think of themselves as Democrats, while 22 percent–a substantially smaller number—of Democrats say they used to think of themselves as Republicans.
