Political Party Affiliation by State -- WOW

Gallup (!) finds that so far in 2009 there are 30 red states and 4 (4!) blue states. Check it out.

This is amazing. The only states that are Republican are Utal, Wyoming, Alaska, and Idaho. Alabama leans Republican. They say "That leaves a total of eight states that are competitive in terms of party identification, with none showing a party advantage of greater than two points. These include Mississippi (+1 Republican), North Dakota and Nebraska (even), and Kansas, Arizona, Texas, South Carolina, and Montana (all +2 Democratic)."

The original piece has more details and state-by-state analysis.
