Rasmussen Poll: Only 38% Welcome Obama Back on the Campaign Trail; Republicans Are More Eager to Vote This Year Than Democrats

Democrats think former President Obama’s presence on the campaign trail is a boost for candidates in their party, but all voters aren’t as convinced.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 38% of Likely U.S. Voters say they are more likely to vote for a candidate whom Obama campaigns for, while 36% say they are less likely. Twenty-four percent (24%) feel an Obama endorsement has no impact on their vote. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Republicans are more enthusiastic than Democrats and independents about voting this November, but all Americans are more eager to vote than they were in the last mid-term elections.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% of Likely Republican Voters say they are more likely to vote this year than they have been in past election years. That compares to 64% of Democrats and 51% of voters not affiliated with either major political party.
