Democrats Are The Most Eager to Vote

Democrats have more of an itch to vote in the midterm elections than Republicans do. Does that spell trouble for the GOP?

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 82% of Likely Democratic Voters say they feel more compelled to vote this year than in previous years. That compares to 74% of Republicans and 71% of voters not affiliated with either major party. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
