Actually..."An August 2008 estimate is that 51% of registered voters, including independents, lean toward the Democratic Party and 38% lean toward the Republican Party." The o…riginal answer below was taken from Pew Research in 2006. Source: http://pewresearch.org/pubs/933/a-closer-look-at-the-parties-in-2008 "Democrats still hold a 48% to 40% lead among registered voters, and a modest lead of 47%-43% among likely voters."

Yes. Your party affiliation only counts for the primary election.
How many delegates a party distributes to each state is the individual party's choice. However, Republicans tend to run "winner take all" states, Democrats divide it up …according to % of votes per candidate - Originally it was probably thought better to have more delegates so that if a state winner had to share the delegates in a split, having more would make it easier for one candidate to break ahead and win. The originators probably didn't anticipate such a close race moving from state to state.
Does anyone have the answer?
Because the rich talk the poor into voting for republicans, when really there just fraud's, making the democrats scapegoats, and they are actually very convincing.
Not necessarily. Many Republicans were elected to end wars that began under Democrats. I'd say if you want the real answer, it's: All wars are started by Republicrats. Both si…des love it. This is mainly because it's all a charade at the administrative level.
States are not identified by political party, as they may provide a majority vote favoring either party in any given federal election. The governors of the states are usually …members of either the Democratic or Republican party, and you can see their current affiliations at the related link below.
The U.S. House of Representatives has 241 Republicans and 191 Democrats. There are 435 members of the House. Some vacancies are part of the total.
There are an estimated 47% registered democrat voters in the United States. There are an estimated 42% of registered voters in the United States that lean towards republic…an.
No typically the Democrats are more greedy. For example Mitt Romney donated millions to charity last year and Vice President Joe Biden only donated 3 hundred dollars. Democrat…s want to spend other peoples money but keep their own. Republicans want everyone to earn and keep their own money. So no...Republicans are not more greedy than Democrats.
The reason they are more common is due to the fact they have existed longer than the third parties and thus get the most recognition.
Using the US-specific definitions of Conservative and Liberal (which, differ greatly from most of the rest of the world), as a party, the Democratic Party is less conservative… than the Republican Party. Now, this obviously also depends on the politicians under discussion. In addition, we usually split a politician's views on economics from those on social issues. So, it is entirely possible to have a politician who holds mostly Liberal views on social issues, and mostly Conservative views on financial/economic issues. And, the inverse is also possible (though, less common).
yes, because they give money from the greedy old people (GOP) and give it to the poor, instead of just keeping money all for themselves.
impossible to tell as plaintiffs are NOT identified as to which political party [ or none ] they are registered with
no it isnt
This is a very good question. What makes it a very good question is the fact that it is very difficult to answer. Thirty States in the USA require some kind of party affilia…tion (or non-affiliation) as a part of their voter registration system. So if you are looking for "registered Democrats or Republicans" you are limited to those 30 states and can't look in 20 states that do not require registration If you are looking for the number of people who "consider" themselves as Democrat or Republican you can look to statistically significant surveys, such as the Rasmussen survey. Rasmussen reported 35.4% reported themselves as Republican and 32.7% reporting themselves as Democrats. 32.4% said they were "Independent." This polling asks 15,000 Americans to report their affiliation. This may seem like a few, but it is a very good number over all for determining the breakdown nationally. You might ask 35.4% of what? What do I multiply 35.4% by to determine the number of persons who consider themselves Republicans. Too bad, we don't have that number, and whatever it is it changes every day. There are several other major polls (Pew and Gallop, to name a few), which show slightly different numbers indicating a Democratic advantage, but, over time, the longer-term trend for a decade has been for more people to identify as Independent (now almost 40%) than either Democrat or Republican (both which vay from about 25 to 35%, depending on the year and poll). However, if the question includes "leaners" (self-identified Independents who usually vote for one party), the percentages change significantly. Democrats consistently have about 50%, while Republicans muster a variable 35-45%, looking at data from the past decade. But in the end you must ask yourself exactly what is it that you want to know? Because when you include the peculiars of the many state parties and the peculiars of the country's election systems these numbers are frequently meaningless. In particular, the outcomes are driven by actual voters; the percentage of voters who actually vote varies significantly in any given election, with the percentage of registered voters who don't cast a vote varying from about 15% to as much as 30% or more.
