In 2016, media attention and concentration were focused on one thing: enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton to be the next president of the United States.
That particular result never materialized, either as a result of the 2016 presidential election or any of the attempts to overturn them.
In 2020, according to new polling, it seems that the tables have turned. Conservatives, and those who are on board the Trump Train making America great again, are fired up.
When it comes to the 2020 presidential election, Democrats are nervous wrecks and Republican excitement has grown.
That’s according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research as Americans look ahead to a high-stakes election that is 10 months away but still very much top of mind. While emotions could change in the coming months, the findings give Democrats one more worry to add to the list: Will anxiety or enthusiasm be a bigger motivator come November?
On the verge of the first votes being cast in a primary contest with no clear leader, 66% of Democrats report anxiety about the election, compared with 46% of Republicans. Democrats are also more likely to feel frustration. Republicans, meanwhile, are more likely than Democrats to declare excitement about the race, and the share of enthusiastic Republicans appears to be rising.
No kidding enthusiasm is rising among Republicans and those who are not true leftists. The policies of President Donald Trump and the way they have been put to work have benefitted everyone. Wages are higher. Taxes are lower. Red tape has been cut. The wall on the southern border is being built. The military is being rebuilt. We are pulling out of pointless wars in the Middle East. America is walking tall on the international stage simply for being America.
Why would those who support the president NOT be enthusiastic?
Now, all that remains is to actually get all those people to vote for continued MAGA in November.
