The new CNN poll finds that Republicans continue to enjoy their advantage in the enthusiasm gap since the signing of the health care bill. Although voter enthusiasm has in fact increased among Democrats, it has also gone up among Republicans, too.
The poll finds that 36% of Democrats are either "very enthusiastic" or "extremely enthusiastic" about voting for Congress this year, a five-point increase from January. However, Republicans have gone up, too, from 49% in January to 55% now.
"The health care vote seems to have made some Democrats more eager to vote in November, but it has also activated more Republican voters, so the Democrats still face the same double-digit 'enthusiasm gap' they had before the vote," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
