Republicans win enthusiasm gap
...This is from a Gallop poll of "adults." It was buried near the bottom of one of those chin pulling polls about who would be better off depending on who won. On that question, my own view is that everyone would be better off if Romney wins.
Republicans have opened a big enthusiasm gap: 64% say they are more enthusiastic than usual about voting, compared to 48% of Democrats. In general, though, the results show an electorate that is less excited and less engaged than in recent presidential elections.
Because this was a poll of adults as opposed to registered votes or likely voters, the enthusiasm gap is probably important in determining who is going to show up. It tells me that those saying Democrats will out number Republican voters are misguided as are their polls.
