Voter Enthusiasm and Turnout

Explore Gallup's research.

As the presidential campaign draws to a close, 69% of U.S. registered voters say they are more enthusiastic about voting than in prior years, and 77% think the stakes are higher.

In stark contrast to recent election years, there is a wide partisan gap in voters' plans to vote early this election year, with Democrats far more likely than Republicans to say they will.

A key Gallup measure of Americans' propensity to vote suggests turnout is on pace to be similar to that in 2012 and 2016, while voter enthusiasm is higher.
