Eight points is the new slightly.
By 53% to 45%, Republicans, including independents who lean Republican, are slightly more likely than Democrats and Democratic leaners to say they are “more enthusiastic than usual about voting” this year. Republicans have consistently led Democrats in voting enthusiasm since last fall, but to varying degrees.
There’s also a slight difference in the gaps with the GOP and Democrats compared with 2008. Like 43 points.
Remind me again how Obama is unbeatable.
