White voters, particularly younger and lower income voters, are moving to the GOP in big numbers.
The Pew Research Center says the number of white voters who say they are Republican or lean that way is up 6 percentage points from 2008. Additionally, voters who make less than $30,000 per year is up 10%, and those who make between $30,000 and $75,000 is up 7% from 2008.
However, that's not all good news for the GOP. The Democrats continue their partisan advantage over Republicans, even if you factor in the independent voters who lean towards the GOP.
