Majority of Americans Now Identifying As Democrats According to Poll | 22 Words

After the tumultuous election last year, a surprising poll suggests the country may not be as divided as we thought ...

Many are surprised by the result.

Especially after the past year of political events ...

Donald Trump took his 2020 election lost catastrophically...

Getty

And it seems his reputation has done lasting damage to the Republican party.

Although it's been 4 months since Joe Biden beat Trump in the election...

Getty

The sore loser that is Donald Trump is still refusing to concede to his defeat.

But the votes didn't lie!

Getty

Biden received approximately eighty-one million votes, while Trump got seventy-eight million, according to NBC News.

Never in the history of U.S elections has a president behaved so badly over his defeat.

Getty

From the moment Biden was confirmed as the winner on November 7th, Trump went on a Twitter rampage - spreading lies about how the election was "stolen" from him and how Biden was nothing but a fraud.

Trump's behavior online began to escalate to dangerous levels...

Getty

And the lies he was spreading to his followers ultimately caused the shocking scenes in Washington on January 6th.

After holding a "Save America" rally just a few miles away from the prestigious Capitol building, Trump encouraged his supporters to "take the election back" and "fight like hell"...

Getty

Which lead to thousands of them storming the Capitol and unleashing true havoc.

5 people, including 1 police officer, died on that day...

Getty

Including hundreds of others being seriously injured.

People from all around the world were horrified by the violent scenes...

And thousands began calling on Trump to intervene and to tell his followers to back down... which, of course, he refused to do along with refusing to take responsibility for the actions of the rioters.

This resulted in Trump being removed from Twitter and all other social media platforms for "inciting violence"...

And ever since, Trump has been painfully absent from all forms of social media.

Of course, we all know how much Trump loved running his mouth via social media...

Getty

So we can't imagine how much of a kick in the teeth this must have been for him!

The seventy-four-year-old was clearly in a huge sulk over his social media dismissal...

And when the day of Biden's inauguration arrived, Trump wasn't present - making him the first U.S president in decades to not attend the inauguration of his successor.

Not a cool look, Don.

President Biden has been in power for 2 months now...

Getty

And although he seems to have been doing a pretty good job as the forty-sixth president of the United States, Trump really doesn't seem to think so.

At any given opportunity, Trump has viciously torn into the president for how "bad" of a job he's been doing...

Getty

Including at the Conservative Political Action Conference on February 28th, in which Trump well and truly grilled President Biden and his administration.

"We all knew that the Biden administration was going to be bad but none of us even imagined how just how bad they would be and how far left they would go," he told the cheering crowd.

He yet again insisted that he had won the 2020 election, fair and square...

Getty

And that he plans to "beat them [the Democrats] for a third time" in 2024.

Of course, this was music to the ears of Trump's remaining supporters...

Getty

But to many, the mere thought of the United States being run by Donald Trump is a literal nightmare.

But a recent poll suggests Don's poor behavior has done lasting damage to his political party.

Getty

With people shocked by its results ...

A recent poll from Gallup has shown a huge jump in Democratic affiliation amongst Americans.

Getty

49% of adults identified either with Democratic Party or said they are independents with Democratic leanings during the first quarter of 2021, while only 40% reported affiliation to Republicans or leaned towards the party - yikes!
