Meanwhile, a new Pew Research Center study found that although the rank of file of both Democrats and Republicans believe that the upcoming midterm election is important, with three-quarters in both parties saying it “really matters” which party wins control of Congress, Democrat voters are reporting higher levels of political activity – from attending political rallies to donating to campaigns – than GOP voters.
The new national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted July 31-August 12 among 4,581 adults, including 4,000 registered voters, found that:
- Whereas 14% of voters say they have attended a political rally, protest or campaign event in the past year, 22% of registered voters who favor the Democratic candidate in their House district say they have attended a political event, compared with just 8% of those who support the Republican candidate.
- 23% of Democratic voters say they have donated to political campaigns, compared with 18% of Republican voters.
- Democratic voters are also more likely to have contacted an elected official (36% vs. 28%) and volunteered for a campaign (9% vs. 5%).
