Gallup: 54% Of Likely Voters Identifying As Politically Conservative
Keep in mind, during the 1994 “Republican Revolution” which took place in the first term of the Clinton administration, Gallup had moderates making up 48% of likely voters.
And the 54% of voters identifying as conservatives is twice the number identifying as moderates, and three times the number identifying as liberal:
Meanwhile, in generic polling, Gallup has Republicans leading Democrats by 18 points in one voter turn out model predicting lower turn out, and 13 points in a model predicting higher turnout.
These are the biggest leads Republicans have ever put up against Democrats in Gallup’s generic poll. The previous record? A five point lead Republicans held…in 1994.
Even if Democrats can rally liberal voters to the polls, it seems now as if it will be too little too late.
This is particularly bad news for incumbent Democrats in places like North Dakota where voting has already begun.Tags: election 2010, gallup, polls
