In 2008, among registered voters Democrats held a 12-point lead on party identification. This year, the Democrat lead is just 5 points. That isn’t enough to withstand Romney’s turnout advantage.

If Pew’s findings hold through Tuesday and Romney has the turnout edge, he is well on his way to victory.

Surely the media will widely report this.
