April 22, 2021: Research from the Pew Center shows that 31% of voters are online almost constantly. Another 48% go online several times a day.[1]

Other research shows a significant political divide between those who are online constantly and the rest of the nation. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 42% of those online almost constantly are Democrats. Twenty-seven percent (27%) are Republicans.[2]

Among the rest of the nation's voters, 36% align with the GOP and 32% with the Democrats.[2]

Not surprisingly, these attitudes are reflected in generic congressional ballot polling as well. Among voters who are online constantly, 50% would vote Democratic, while 33% would vote Republican. The GOP has a slight advantage among all other voters.[2]Footnotes:
