GOP affiliation has been holding somewhat more steady over the last four years (declining one point), while Democratic affiliation is has fallen by a larger amount (declining four points).

I'm not sure where you got this.

Democratic affiliation is up slightly, but just about in line with historic trends (2008 excepted), while Republican affiliation is down sharply over time (going back to 1992):

Yes, 2008 was an anomaly, owing to the multiple disasters of the Bush years (Iraq, Katrina, Wall Street), but remove that data point and the trend is slow, but inexorable.
