Gallup: GOP Has Big 'Enthusiasm' Advantage

Monday, 04 Oct 2010 11:28 PM

A Gallup Poll analysis released Monday found Republicans hold a huge “enthusiasm” advantage in voters most likely to turn out, according to USA Today. That’s why President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and other Democrats have been hitting the gallip,poll,enthusiasm,republicanscampaign trail to get their base motivated enough to vote. Otherwise, the nation is moving toward a “very good election for Republicans,’’ said Stuart Rothenberg of the nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report.

“While we might take exception with the magnitude of the Republican advantage on this poll, few veteran political observers would disagree with the direction of the election this poll suggests,’’ Rothenberg added.

The Gallup Poll, taken Sept. 23-Oct. 3, shows 56 percent of likely voters support the GOP vs. 38 percent favoring the Democrats. But if the poll includes all registered voters then Republicans hold only a 3 percent advantage. The poll’s margin of error is +/- 3 points for the poll that surveyed 1,882 likely voters and +/- 2 points for the sampling of 2,764 registered voters. It is Gallup’s first calculation of likely voters this year.
