If you remember one ominous sign of the 2008 election was the dramatic decline in the number of self-identified and registered Republicans in the country.  This year, Rasmussen is seeing a reverse of that trend:

During August, 37.6% of Americans considered themselves Republicans. That’s up from 34.9% in July  and 35.4% in June. It’s also the largest number of Republicans ever recorded by Rasmussen Report since monthly tracking began in November 2002. The previous peak for the GOP was 37.3% in September 2004.
