Is another stealth “red wave” about to break?
Well, being a fundamental pessimist, I’d say “probably not” – but I’ve been wrong before, most noticeably two years about tomorrow.
But according to Rasmusson, there might just be something sneaking out of the fog.: I’m adding emphasis:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 60% of Likely Democratic Voters say they are more likely to let others know how they intend to vote this year compared to previous congressional elections. This compares to 49% of Republicans and 40% of voters not affiliated with either major political party. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
In August 2016, 52% of Democrats were more likely to let others know how they intended to vote in the upcoming presidential election, compared to 46% of Republicans and 34% of unaffiliated voters. Some analysts before and after Donald Trump’s upset victory suggested that most pollsters missed his hidden support among voters fearful of criticism who were unwilling to say where they stood.
I can’t tell you the number of people who voted for Truimp who’d have never admitted it in public, fearing ostracism and reprisals.
We’ll know tomorrow.
