#rsrh Gallup does not bring the DOOM.

DOOM implies a lack of giggling.

An average of 59% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents have said they are more enthusiastic than usual about voting this year compared with past elections, the highest average Gallup has found in a midterm election year for either party since the question was first asked in 1994.

Via Jim Geraghty.  Just try not to giggle at that article.

PS: It’s not over yet, of course: we have a little over four months to go before the elections.  There is no law of physics that dictates that GOP and Democratic enthusiasm has to stay at this level for that length of time.  But the Democrats are rapidly running out of room in which to maneuver.

  1. Actually, according to that, the Dem “enthusiasm” numbers are higher than I thought they’d be (and much higher than their 1994 numbers).

    This implies that the GOP will have to do particularly well with Independents to make up some of that difference…

  2. Midterms are all about turnout, and the Republicans will win in turnout everywhere.

    People want Obama GONE, people want the Democrats GONE, and they want people in office who are willing to bring charges and get rid of him.
