PRINCETON, NJ — A majority of U.S. registered voters, 53%, say they are less enthusiastic about voting than in previous elections, while 35% are more enthusiastic. This 18-percentage-point enthusiasm deficit is larger than what Gallup has measured in prior midterm election years, particularly in 2010 when there was record midterm enthusiasm.
Republican voter enthusiasm has dropped from 62% to 42%. Gee. I wonder what could have caused that? Is it possible that a bunch of Republicans figured out that no matter what they do, the Gentry GOP will find a way to ignore and betray their wishes?
“What’s the use?” doesn’t make for much of a rallying cry.
