In the wake of a poll that saw Idaho give President Barack Obama his lowest approval marks, the Gem State has to take second prize as the nation's "most Republican state."
In a new poll out this morning from the Gallup Organization, Utah takes the lead as the top GOP state with a 32-percent advantage over Democrats. Idaho has a 29-percent Republican advantage, followed by Wyoming at 27 percent, Alaska at 19 percent and North Dakota at 18 percent.
Washington, D.C., has a 68-percent Democratic advantage, followed by Hawaii at 24 percent, Maryland at 22 percent, Connecticut at 20 percent and New York at 20 percent.
The results were based on interviews with more than 170,000 U.S. adults from January through June.
Nationwide, Democrats had a slight advantage in the first half of 2011 in the Gallup data, with 44 percent of Americans identifying themselves as, or leaning, Democratic vs. 40 percent identifying themselves as, or leaning, Republican.
