GOP groups are more fired up to vote in midterms – NPR Poll

Washington, Nov 2 (Prensa Latina) Heading into the final week of voting, some of Democrats' key base voters' levels of enthusiasm are far below that of Republican-base voter groups, the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found. It is the last NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist survey before voting wraps up Tuesday.

84% of registered conservatives said they were too interested in the midterms, compared with 68% of Democrats and 58% of independents, according to the Marist-NPR-PBS NewsHour survey.

While GOP held a motivation sizable lead earlier this year, that gap narrowed over the summer, as the Blue Party gained advances in the wake of the Supreme Court’s repeal of abortion rights and the gas price drop.

Now, a week away from the midterm elections, the GOPers seem to have reestablished their advantage in terms of electoral enthusiasm.

Their motivation gap between conservatives and liberals raises alarm for President Joe Biden’s helpers, who are trying to champion their slim majorities in Congress by appealing to voters on issues such as abortion and threats to democracy.

Also, one-third of Democrats said in the poll they had already voted, compared to 22% of Republicans, whose majority (53%) said they will go to the polls on Election Day.

The survey of 1,586 adults and 1,469 registered voters was conducted Oct. 24 through Oct. 27 by the Marist Poll and sponsored in partnership with NPR and PBS NewsHour. There is about a +/- 4 percentage point margin of error, meaning results could be 4 points lower or higher than what’s listed.
