Less than three weeks before Election Day, voter interest has reached an all-time high for a midterm election, with a majority of registered voters saying this election is “more important” to them than past midterms.
What’s more, 80% of Democrats and Republicans believe the political opposition poses a threat that, if not stopped, will destroy America as we know it.
And two-thirds of reliable Democratic and Republican voters say they’d still support their party’s political candidate, even if that person had a moral failing that wasn’t consistent with their own values.
The poll also found 70% of all registered voters expressing high interest in the election — either a “9” or a “10” on a 10-point scale — the highest percentage ever in the survey for a midterm election at this point.
By party, however, 78% of Republicans have a high interest in the midterms, compared with 69% of Democrats.
