More Republicans are leading counties, says poll
The gap between Republicans and Democrats has widened significantly among the ranks of county elected officials since 2004, according to NACo’s 2012 National Survey of County Elected Officials.
Fifty-two percent of those polled self-identified as Republican versus 31 percent Democrats. In 2004 and 2008 — both presidential election years — the figures were closer at about 40 percent each.
