The latest Congressional poll in Virginia is grim. It seems the Democrats’ anger has not abated. They have a 15% advantage in their enthusiasm to vote in November, 60% to 45%. When voters were asked if they would vote for a Republican or a Democrat, 45% said Democrat and 33% said Republican. Worse, 51% want Democrats to control Congress after the election while only 38% want Republicans in control. From the poll:
From the CNU Wason Center,
Among the 825 registered voters saying they are “very enthusiastic” about voting in the midterms, Democrats lead by 23% on the generic ballot test and 26% on the control of Congress test. “The question is no longer whether there is a Blue Wave coming, but rather, how high the storm surge will get,” said Rachel Bitecofer, assistant director of the Wason Center. “This enthusiasm gap in favor of Democrats suggests several House seats currently held by Republicans could be in play, such as the 1st, 2nd, 7th, and 10th districts.”
On top of that, Virginians still respect the FBI and the Department of Justice, with the former having a 63% favorability rating and DOJ with 53% approval. Hard to believe. Even more idiotic, 50% of Virginia voters believe Trump colluded with the Russians in the 2016 election, completely ignoring the fact that there is zero evidence of any collusion. These numbers tie to Trump’s low approval rating in Virginia of 35%.
Before we panic, let’s remember, the election is 8 long months away, an eternity in politics. Democrats may not be able to maintain their white hot anger against Trump which seems to be driving these poll results.
