(Worthy News) - For the first time in eight years, there are more "red" states than "blue" states in the country, according to new analysis of political party affiliations in the U.S. from Gallup.
In 2015, there were 20 states that were solidly Republican or leaned Republican, compared to 14 that were solidly Democratic or leaned Democratic, with 16 "competitive" states, according to the analysis released Wednesday.
That's the first time since Gallup started the analysis in 2008 that red, or Republican, states outnumbered blue, or Democratic states. [ Source ]
