Voters Are Much More Eager to Vote This Year

Are the stakes higher this election season? Voters seem to think so.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 67% of Likely U.S. Voters say they are more likely to vote this year than they have in past election years. Just eight percent (8%) say they are less likely to vote this year, while 23% say they are just as likely to vote this year as they were past years. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
