Another Democrat Alka Seltzer Moment, Conservatives Most Enthusiastic About 2010 Midterm Vote


RUT-ROH Democrats don’t look now but more bad news for the upcoming 2010 midterm elections … Gallup Poll indicated that Conservatives are the most enthusiastic about voting in the 2010 midterms.

Democrats better buy stock in Alka Seltzer this Fall

Registered voters who identify themselves as conservatives are significantly more enthusiastic about voting in this fall’s congressional elections than are liberals or moderates. Those who say they are “very” conservative are the most enthusiastic of all, with substantially higher enthusiasm than those who say they are “very” liberal.

45% of total Conservatives, 62% of very Conservative and only 21% of liberals are very enthusiastic about voting in the upcoming 2010 midterm elections. Is it any wonder that the buzz is that Republicans have a real chance of taking back the House of Representatives and even an outside chance at the US Senate.

Not only do Conservatives have the momentum, but we also need to analyze the the identity (political ideology) of the percentage of voters that are not motivated to vote.

It may be more instructive to look at the “not enthusiastic” numbers.  Among all self-identified conservative voters, only 30% report being unenthusiastic about the midterms.  In comparison, 50% of moderates and 42% of liberals are apathetic.  Considering the wide gaps in identification with these positions, those position differences point to a midterm wipeout for nonconservative candidates.

That helps Republicans, but it goes deeper than that.  The most enthusiastic Democratic voters are those who identify as conservatives (33%), not moderates (20%) or liberal (26%).

So many of the polls are pointing in one direction and that is a Republican tsunami in 2010. Now all the GOP has to do is not screw it up and remember what brought you back from the abyss, and it was not being Republican light.

      Oh the liberal spin is already starting with the PA-12 vote win for them; who was Murtha’s aide…yippy yo for them.

      That area has forever been a Democratic strong hold. I know half of my extended family lives there and I’ve tried to tell them that they are absolutely certifiably insane for voting for Critz; when Murtha was STEALING money from them to upgrade his airport where on a daily basis maybe 2 or 3 planes land a day….LOL! They made their own bed though and that race has ZIPPY bearing on 2010 midterms.

      LOL – Thanks for the OUTDATED Poll (5/18) Gee, what happened last night in Kentucky? Oh, that’s right, the Democratic turnout far out-numbered the Republicans in Kentucky in last night’s elections. The LOSING Democratic Senate candidate, Mangiardo, got more votes last night than the WINNING Republican candidate Rand Paul. So much much for the story above. Lol. But I’m sure the koolaide drinking right wing crazies will believe what you wrote.

      Hey, I don’t remember – last night, in the only R vs D match up, who won? That’s right, the D won in a district that voted for John McCain in 2008. Looks like a shift to me.

      The Republicans are splintered and the best strategy they can come up with is “anti-Obama” all the time. They are dependent upon Rush Limbaugh and the right-wing radio and TV to save them. They are in serious, if not fatal, condition. Just saying “No” will not save them.

      Perhaps they will get their just reward?

      btw #1 – hate to break it to you but based off what you write here, but I’m pretty sure they think the same of you…absolutely certifiably insane.
      SM: Sorry Yoyo, you will need Kleenix in November 2010.

      Personally, it was the best thing that could have happened to the GOP in PA.
      1. The Democrat goes in and has to be the Rep that he claimed he would be and promised voters. He ran against Obamacare and much of what Obama and Pelosi are for. The voters will see he is a liar and throw him out in 2010 midterm.
      2. The GOP needs to understand they have much work to do. The voters are not necessarily for Republicans, especially the establishment. Just take a look at Kentucky and Rand Paul win.

      Unfortunately by November there may be little left resembling the once great United States for conservatives to work with. Even if they can attempt to fix things, he will veto anything that doesn’t adhere to his ideology. He has already shown distain for the will of the people.

      yes, he can veto but, with a majority in the house & senate he won’t be able to get any
      of his racist agendas passed.

      You’re right Dave, but he still has 6 months left to pass gun control, take over private business, tax everything in sight, ramp up the voter fraud … maybe he can even get his mindless followers to pass a law making him dictator. That would make Woody Allen happy (he must be suffering from advanced dementia due to his age).
