Maybe it's just too many medical drama reruns, but the phrase "bleeding out" comes to mind:
Earlier this week a Washington Post poll made a big splash because it found that only 21 percent self-identify as Republicans. The abysmally low number got pundits and reporters talking about whether the GOP is shrinking to the point of irrelevance.

Now we have another poll that finds that the number of self-identified Republicans has dropped even lower: 20 percent.

My handy Plum Line calculator informs me that this means exactly one-fifth of adults identify themselves as Republican.
And thus, with a spring in my step and a warm fuzzy in my heart, I leave for a well-deserved weekend out of town...
