    2010 Electorate Still Looking More Republican Than in the Past

    GOP Election Day advantage aided by surge in independents who lean Republicanby Lydia SaadPRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup's latest figures on the composition of the 2010 electorate suggest that, consistent with an earlier Gallup report, those voting in this year's congressional elections across the country will be similar in gender, age, and education to 2006 voters. At the same time, they will be substantially more Republican in their party orientation, and more conservative than has been the case in the past several midterms.



    The current and historical likely voter data reviewed here assume an approximately 40% turnout rate among national adults for each election, close to the typical turnout rate recorded in recent midterm years. (Gallup has also calculated the 2010 congressional vote using an assumption of higher turnout.)

    Specifically, 55% of likely voters in Gallup's Oct. 14-24, 2010, polling are Republicans and independents who lean Republican. This is higher than the Republican showing in the past four midterm elections, although not too dissimilar to the 51% found in 2002. The corollary of this is that the 40% of likely voters now identifying as Democratic is the lowest such percentage of the past several midterms.

    Notably, this year's high Republican representation among likely voters stems mainly from a substantial increase in Republican-leaning independents in the likely voter pool -- now at 16% -- reflecting the broader shift toward the Republican Party among independents evident since 2009.

    With respect to political ideology, the 48% of likely voters now describing their political views as conservative is slightly greater than the 42% to 45% seen in each of the prior three midterms. However, the percentage of likely voters identifying as liberal has also generally increased over this period. Both changes are consistent with broader patterns Gallup has identified in the past year.








    Just kinda amazing the change in the elctorate in just the past 20 months or so.......:fu:

    ( I LOVE THIS NEW SMILEY GUY!!! )

    What I'd like to see is more Independents. Both parties are spiritually and morally bankrupt, in my opinion.

    Oh............I also highly recommend tuning in election night coverage to MSNBC, particularly the Olbermann show, "Countdown". You want to make the experience a fcukking hoot and especially memorable. Dont miss that guy who'll likely be on all night. The level of visible misery will be cant miss TV and you'll know that'll be the affect and level of miserable being displayed by the k00ks all across the country.

    Anyone going to the Rally to Restore Sanity this weekend? It could stir up some trouble for the TP'ers.. :razz:

    I am not but I'll catch as much of it on C-Span as I can. Maybe MSNBC, they always have good election coverage.
