A new CNN poll shows voters are more fired up about voting for Democrats than Republicans in the midterm elections just four weeks away.

Amid and immediately following the fight for the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, voters were asked, “If the elections for Congress were being held today, which party’s candidate would you vote for in your Congressional district?”

The responses were good news for Democrats: 54 percent they were more likely to vote blue, while 41 percent said they would vote Republican.

According to CNN, this is the widest margin of support for Democrats in a midterm cycle since 2006.

The gap widened three percentage points since last month.

There was a stark difference between the sexes, with 63 percent of women saying they would vote Democrat, and only 33 percent said they would vote Republican.

The poll is a generic test and doesn’t show if the excited Democratic voters are where they need to be to flip seats in their favor.

The poll was taken Oct. 4-7. Kavanaugh was confirmed as a Supreme Court justice on Oct. 6.

  1. Well Lizzie, I guess I should thank you for at least including the sentence,”The poll is a generic test and doesn’t show if the excited Democratic voters are where they need to be to flip seats in their favor.”

    You could’ve and should’ve included the make-up of the respondents. You should have let your readers know that the respondents were 25% Republican, 75% non-Republican. I think that is pretty telling right there.

    • Trumpov’s rallies are nothing more than cult meetings. They get to go and see and hear their Dear Leader for an hour or two with some friends, then they are satiated. But it is just entertainment, like a monster truck night or WWE match. SOMA for the cult members. Dear Leader tells them that he loves them, then he disappears. His affects wear off, though, as they go home to their terrible reality. They still have to look at themselves in a mirror, in the morning.

      • “cult meetings”. REALLY? Sometimes it really does seem that the electrons in your brain are firing in perfect order, then, you show us, that the electrons in your ass run the show.

  2. This poll was the topic of a 6 hour show – on 6 different “news” shows last night. It’s too bad polls don’t elevate someone to office, but pinheads still have fun surfing virtual waves
