Behind the Polls: Trump’s Voters Far More Enthusiastic Than Biden’s

Joe Biden leads in most polls, but that doesn’t mean much. Democrats are not excited about their sleepy, mumbling standard-bearer.

According to the Washington Examiner:

According to the latest Emerson College Polling’s survey, Democrats appear to be throwing in the towel. While Biden leads President Trump in a head-to-head matchup, 48%-42%, when voters overall were asked who they really think will win in November, it’s a Trump blowout, 57%-43%.

Emerson found that Trump has a sizable 19-point advantage in the enthusiasm gap, 64%-45%. Some 36% of his supporters said they are “extremely excited” to vote for Trump, and 28% said they are “very excited.” For Biden, those numbers are 22% and 23%.

Biden wins the “mildly excited” category, with 29% to Trump’s 22%.
