Shocker! Republicans Less Enthusiastic About Voting in 2014

Voter Enthusiasm Down Sharply From 2010

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.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. “Fuck it, let it burn” is literally* an anti-rallying cry. Don’t bother to form a mass protest. Just stay home, don’t vote, go Galt, and let it burn.

    * And I mean “literally” literally, in its literal denotative sense, not as an intensifier.
