Shocker: Democrats are not excited.

In thinking about the 2012 presidential election, 45% of Democrats and independents who lean Democratic say they are more enthusiastic about voting than usual, while nearly as many, 44%, are less enthusiastic. This is in sharp contrast to 2008 and, to a lesser extent, 2004, when the great majority of Democrats expressed heightened enthusiasm about voting.
If Democrats' (and Democratic-leaning Independents') enthusiasm continues to track this way, President Obama may be will be in for a really tough re-election campaign.
