The toughest are already that Donald Trump will probably lose the popular vote again….
And by a larger margin….
But as we have come to see?
The popular vote does NOT choose a American President…
It is from where the vote comes from…
THAT is where the race actually is….
A new Gallup poll finds 64% of American voters say they are “more enthusiastic” about voting compared with previous elections, while 28% are “less enthusiastic” and 6% say they currently have the same level of enthusiasm as they have in the past.
“Americans’ self-reported enthusiasm is among the highest Gallup has measured across presidential election years, similar to the levels recorded near the end of the 2004, 2008 and 2012 elections. Enthusiasm was more subdued in 2000 and 2016.”
A new Kaiser Family Foundation/Cook Political Report poll finds Democrats have a slight edge in enthusiasm in three key battleground states.
Over six in ten Democratic voters in Pennsylvania (66%), Michigan (65%), and Wisconsin (62%) say they are more motivated to vote in next year’s 2020 presidential election than they were in 2016. This is at least 10 percentage points higher than the share of Republican voters in each state saying the same (54% in Pennsylvania, 53% in Michigan, and 46% in Wisconsin).
In Minnesota, Republican voters are just as motivated as their Democratic counterparts.
A new Kaiser Family Foundation/Cook Political Report poll finds nearly three times as many voters offer responses related to defeating President Trump (21%) as offer responses related to re-electing him or not wanting a Democrat to be elected (8%).
Defeating President Trump was offered as the top motivation to vote in 2020 by 39% of Democratic voters while responses related to re-electing President Trump/not wanting a Democrat were offered by 21% of Republican voters. Twenty percent of independent voters offered responses related to defeating President Trump while 7% of independent voters offered responses related to re-electing President Trump.
Overall, 23% of voters offer issues such as health care, the economy, and immigration, as their motivation for voting in the 2020 presidential election….
