Damn, scroll on CNN says 22% of Dems excited about mid-terms

And 30 percent of repugs excited. Similar results for Presidential election.
Anyone have thoughts or suggestions for how we, as individuals can excite more Dems?

4. what does excited mean?

I'm not excited because we're going in with a disadvantage for the senate and congress and will likely lose one or both. Doesn't mean I won't vote.

Just another push-poll

7. Best thing I have done is stopped watching the polls, and the MSM talking heads. It is pure yellow

journalism, not designed to inform, but to create hyperbole and over-reaction

10. Yup. Can't imagine MSM actually running an non biased poll.

 

Imagine if they ran a truly honest poll, rather than news intended to discouage voter turnout!
Voter suppression is Yellow Journalism.

18. Yes, along with the USSC ending Roe v Wade, and other things.

It won't just be run-of-the-mill "excited." It will be the "pissed-off" kind. And,it won't be just Democrats, either.

9. 22% of what?

22% of the population watch CNN?

22% of their total viewers?

22% of all cable news viewers?

22% of the population who live in say, Louisville Kentucky?

22% of the population who live in San Francisco?

Mesa Arizona?

Salt Lake City?

Boise Idaho?

all of North Dakota?

CNN didn't poll me or my neighbors. (we talk to each other all the time, and this subject definitely would have been covered)

These polls are not informative of reality.

20. Well, I vote whether I'm excited or not LOL

And I vote despite the fact that my state is solidly Democratic in its representation in Congress and the Senate and is not likely to change.

24. These polls play with my nerves like a kitten plays with a ball of yarn

For my own mental stability and physical health, I just stopped looking at them.
