A new poll out Wednesday found President Donald Trump is firing up voters on both sides of the political spectrum ahead of next year’s election, and a majority of them see it somewhat likely that President Donald Trump will be re-elected to a second term.

In the survey, conducted Nov. 1 – 3 by Morning Consult and Politico, 56 percent of registered voters said they expect Trump to win the vote. Republicans remained the most confident of Trump’s prospects, with 85 percent expecting him to win. Only 35 percent of Democrats and 51 percent of independents said the same.

Additionally, pollsters found excitement over the election to be exceedingly high. More than 90 percent of voters said they are likely to turn out, and 69 percent describe themselves as “very motivated.”

“President Trump’s reelection prospects seem to be energizing voter enthusiasm across the political spectrum,” Tyler Sinclair, Morning Consult’s vice president, told Politico. “Our data points show that Republicans and Democrats are equally inclined to say they are motivated and likely to vote in next year’s election.”

Voters’ anxiety about the election depends largely on what side of the political spectrum they sit. Democrats were most likely to say they are hopeful (26 percent) and worried (24 percent) about the election, while Republicans were most likely to say they are hopeful (19 percent) and confident (17 percent) about the election.
