A new Gallup poll reveals Americans are giving a lot of thought to the presidential election.

The poll found:
  • Three out of four voters said they are giving quite a lot of thought to the November contest
  • Only 21 percent of those surveyed said they're giving "only a little" thought to it.
In a statement on its website, Gallup's Jim Norman said the results are comparable to the 2008 election, which produced the highest voter turnout percentage in 40 years. It noted about 73 percent of Americans, gave a lot of thought to that election.

"It is no surprise that a campaign with two heated battles for party nominations, each dominated by a candidate who has been among the nation's best-known public figures for decades, has drawn the attention of most Americans," Norman wrote.

"Both nominees face the dual challenges of winning back support within their own party from campaign opponents and those opponents' supporters as well as improving their images with the general public."

However, there have been changes in enthusiasm based on voters' political leanings.

"Conservatives' enthusiasm has grown, while liberals' has faded. Fifty-two percent of conservatives are more enthusiastic this year, compared with 40 percent in 2008; at the same time, 48 percent of liberals are more enthusiastic now, compared with 63 percent in 2008," Norman wrote.

The poll results are based on telephone interviews with 1,530 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states.
