Enthusiasm Gap: GOP 64%, Democrats 43%

Republicans seem far more excited to vote in next year’s presidential elections than Democrats are, suggesting the same sort of enthusiasm gap that pushed the GOP to big gains in the 2010 elections.

The numbers were part of the latest CNN-ORC International poll that found 62 percent of self-identified Republicans were extremely or very enthusiastic about voting for president, while only 48 percent of Democrats said the same thing.

Independents, meanwhile, are the least eager, with just 39 percent saying they’re excited to vote, and a whopping 21 percent saying they’re “not at all enthusiastic.”
