(Princeton, NJ) — April 27, 2010. Despite signs of economic recovery, general election prospects are growing more dire for Democrats, according to a new poll.
Democrats and Republicans are drawing even among registered voters, but among “enthusiastic voters” — it’s a GOP blowout by 20 points. 20.
Gallup reports in a new poll today:
Although U.S. registered voters are closely divided in their 2010 congressional election preferences, those who say they are “very enthusiastic about voting” this year show a strong preference for the Republican Party.
The Cook Political Report recently shifted its outcome of the Illinois U.S. Senate contest between Alexi Giannoulias and Mark Kirk from “toss-up” to “lean Republican”.
With the kind of numbers Gallup is reporting the senate race is not “leaning Republican” — it’s “back-flipping Republican”.
