Hold the Election Today! People Support Dems Over GOP by Wide Margin in New Poll

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Last poll-related blog of the day, I swear. Amidst mountains of disgust with George Bush’s handling of domestic issues, foreign policy issues, and all issues ever, there is an interesting number in this AP/Ipsos poll [pdf].

Including strong supporters, moderate supporters, and nominal supporters, you’ve got 54 percent of the country that favors the Democratic Party. The same number for the Republicans is only 36 percent. That’s a difference of 18 percent, or exactly half the GOP’s support.

Hillary, BHO, and Jedwards have to hope this national mood lasts. It’ll be a cakewalk. Spotted on TPM.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
