Democrats gaining ground

As posted over at DailyKos, a summary of 2006 Gallup polls shows Democrats gaining ground as more voters self-identify as Democrat or leaning Democrat and as less voters self-identify as Republican or leaning Republican. The post shows state by state results and I'm especially pleased to see Nevada's shift. Below is a summary of gains and losses by Democrats. Bolded states went for Bush in 2004.

States where Republicans no longer have an edge: Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee.

States where Democrats have gained an edge: Delaware, Florida, Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin

States where both took place: Arizona, Indiana, Missouri, New Hampshire, Oklahoma,
Virginia

States where Democrats lost an edge: Louisiana
