Rasmussen Poll Shows GOP More Activated By Kavanaugh Saga
One of the "indicators" of the alleged Blue Wave (democrats win) election coming in November is the story of the ballot as told by the "generic ballot".
Is it time for democrats to rethink that strategic comfort zone? Latest Rasmussen Polling numbers show Generic Congressional Ballot Is All Tied Up
- With less than a month to Election Day, the Generic Congressional Ballot is now dead even.
- The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters would choose the Democratic candidate if the elections for Congress were held today. Another 45% would opt for the Republican. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided.
- Last week, 47% of voters said they would choose the Democratic candidate while 42% said they would choose the Republican. The survey people say it is unclear whether the sudden jump to a tie vote is a reflection of the anger surrounding the Kavanaugh confirmation process, but they say they will continue to watch this in the weeks ahead.
What Rasmussen numbers do show is that GOP Voters Madder, More Likely to Vote Because of Kavanaugh
- A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of all Likely U.S. Voters say they are more likely to vote in the upcoming midterm elections because of the controversy surrounding President Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee. Only nine percent (9%) say they are less likely to vote. Thirty-four percent (34%) say the controversy will have no impact on their vote.
- Sixty-two percent (62%) of Republicans are more likely to vote because of the Kavanaugh controversy, compared to 54% of Democrats and 46% of voters not affiliated with either major political party.
