Seventy-one percent of women who identify as Democrats are “very motivated” to vote in the upcoming midterm elections, according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll.
Democrats are favored to take the House of Representatives in November, but their path to control of the Senate is much more difficult. They need to gain 24 seats on top of their current holdings to reach the threshold they need in the House, and are up by 8.3 points in an average of polls compiled by Real Clear Politics.
Only 33 seats are up for re-election in the Senate this year, and the majority of those slots are currently held by Democrats.
According to the poll, 68 percent of Republican men are also very motivated to vote, along with 69 percent of Republican women. Sixty-three percent of Democratic men, 58 percent of Independent men and 51 percent of Independent women said the same.
The poll also found:
- 66 percent of White voters are more energized than African Americans (58 percent) or Hispanics (52 percent) to vote.
- Seventy-four percent of Baby Boomers (54-72) are very motivated to vote, compared to just 45 percent of voters aged 18-21, 52 percent of millennials (ages 22-37), and 60 percent of Generation Xers (38-53).
