Democrat Voter Enthusiasm Is Down, Republican Enthusiasm Is Up

Barack Obama

Some interesting polling from Gallup:

Obviously, not a positive trend for Democrats. In 2004 and 2008 it was easy to motivate Democrat voters against in-power Republicans. It was easy for Obama and other Democrats to campaign as reformers on a “change” platform. But now they’re the status quo, faced with defending an unpopular government take over of health insurance and a raft of economic policies that haven’t born a lot of fruit.

I wouldn’t be enthusiastic about that either.
