Gallop Poll: Married More Likely to be Republican

Gallop has found a significant marriage gap in party identification. Republicans are more likely to be married and Democrats are much more likely to be single. Republicans have always considered themselves the party of family values.

From Gallop:
PRINCETON, NJ -- A Gallup analysis of more than 29,000 interviews conducted in June highlights a continuing and significant marriage gap in party identification. The percentage of all Americans who identified as Republican in June was 28%, but is higher at 33% among those who are married, and a lower 21% among unmarried Americans. On the other hand, Democratic identification in June was at 35% overall, but 31% among married Americans, and 41% among those who are not married. This marriage gap in party identification is evident across races as well as age groups.
