NEW: Democrats Start 2022 Cycle With an Edge in Voter Enthusiasm
April 14, 2021
Democrats are kicking off the 2022 cycle with more energy among voters than Republicans according to a new poll from Morning Consult.
President Joe Biden’s agenda and delivering on his promises resoundingly excites Democrats more than the muddled message from Republicans.
Morning Consult: “Democrats are beginning the budding 2022 election cycle with an enthusiasm advantage over Republicans as President Joe Biden and his party work to buck the traditional midterm curse of losing ground in Congress. At this early stage, Democratic voters, at 81 percent, are 9 percentage points more likely than Republican voters, at 72 percent, to say they’re at least ‘somewhat’ enthusiastic about voting in the 2022 midterms, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll.”
This comes on the heels of news that more Americans are finding a home in the Democrratic Party and leaving the Republican Party.
USA Today: “Gallup poll shows largest increase in Democratic Party affiliation in a decade”
Washington Post: “The Democratic advantage in party identification has gotten a lot wider”
Gallup: “In Gallup polling throughout the first quarter of 2021, an average of 49% of U.S. adults identified with the Democratic Party or said they are independents who lean toward the Democratic Party. That compares with 40% who identified as Republicans or Republican leaners. The nine-percentage-point Democratic advantage is the largest Gallup has measured since the fourth quarter of 2012.”
Bloomberg: “Gallup said the jump comes mostly from Republicans leaving the party at the end of President Donald Trump’s tenure. Only 25% of U.S. adults firmly identify with the Republicans, down from 29% late last year.”
