39. Maybe it's me...but the 2000 numbers don't match the link.
Edited on Wed Feb-23-05 05:07 PM by Chi
This is what the MSNBC page said.

39 Democrat
35 Republican
27 Independent

Thought I might be missing something.

(On edit)
They also don't agree with this link either (Ruy Teixeira).

"It doesnt exactly settle the issue, but its worth drawing peoples attention to data on party
identification trends recently released by the Annenberg Election Survey. According to these
data, based on 45,000 interviews of registered voters (RVs) conducted from December 1999
through January 2001, Democratic identifiers led Republican identifiers by 33.7 percent to 29.9
percent, a 3.8 point Democratic advantage, essentially identifical in size to that measured by
Voter News Service in the 2000 exit poll.
Annenberg also conducted about 68,000 interviews of RVs from October 2003 to mid-Novmber,
2004 and found only a slight diminution in the Democratic party identification advantage to 2.8
points (34.6 percent Democratic to 31.8 percent Republican). Thats quite a different story than
the one implied by 2004 NEP exit poll and, given the huge sample sizes in the Annenberg
study, is certainly worthy of consideration."
