Presidential Flash Poll: Iowa, January 24, 2015

BY Ned Ryun / Blog / 0 COMMENTS

We’ve decided at Voter Gravity we’re going to make these “flash polls” a weekly occurrence. To understand the dynamics and reasoning behind what we’re doing, we’re using Voter Gravity’s touchtone survey feature to try and gauge support for 2016 candidates among the super primary GOP voters. Click here to see the poll results. It was run on Saturday, January 24, 2015 of GOP primary voters in Iowa who have voted in 5 of the last 5 GOP primaries: 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014. We’re of the opinion that, especially in primaries, vote history is a very significant indicator in likelihood to vote (see George Hawley’s white paper on turnout).

There are limitations to doing touchtone surveys with such a potentially large GOP field: you can only list 9 options. We believe that there are at least 7 others who should be in a flash poll to gauge interest (thus the 400 who would support Other): Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, John Kasich, Mike Pence, Rick Santorum, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina should be included, and no doubt we will rotate some of those names in for future “flash polls.”

So take the poll for what it’s worth: hardcore GOP primary voters who are very likely to be involved in voting in 2016 primaries and caucuses, letting us know how they feel about potential GOP nominees. One interesting note about the below: Huckabee and Romney are well know quantities in Iowa already, and quite frankly, so is the name Bush. Scott Walker is the really interesting number. He is quickly being considered a Tier 1 candidate, which is no real surprise.

Off-Year Voter Turnout Trends Since 1950

BY Brandt Edmonston / Blog / 0 COMMENTS

Midterm election turnouts are always significantly lower than on presidential election years. This is a natural byproduct of what voters perceive to be a less significant election, so no one is surprised by low midterm turnout.

However, this cycle, candidates and consultants alike were surprised at the very low turnout in 2014. A mere 36.4% of eligible voters actually voted.

Such a low voter turnout has not occurred since World War II. In the 1942 midterms, turnout came to 33.9% of eligible voters. One would think that the same cycle that set campaign expenditure records would also have turned out more voters. The opposite seems to be true. Record high expenditures seemed to only be able to produce a little bit of involvement.

Here is a comparison of midterm election involvement since 1950:

  • 1950: 44%
  • 1954: 44%
  • 1958: 45%
  • 1962: 48%
  • 1966: 49%
  • 1970: 47%
  • 1974: 39%
  • 1978: 39%
  • 1982: 43%
  • 1986: 39%
  • 1990: 40%
  • 1994: 42%
  • 1998: 39%
  • 2002: 41%
  • 2006: 41%
  • 2010: 42%
  • 2014: 36%

These figures definitely demonstrate significant variance in voter turnout during midterm election cycles. However, it is fascinating to realize that just over 42 percent of eligible voters on average determine who our elected officials are.

Not only was this year’s turnout incredibly low, but turnout is just low in general. Only two people in five, roughly, make their voices heard about who will govern them. This country is truly run by a minority of its overall population.
