Gallup Predicts Voter Turnout Will Be Lowest in Years

Turnout in the midterm elections this fall could be lower than in the past two midterm elections, based on current voter engagement, reports Gallup. On each of three indicators of voter engagement in midterm elections — how much thought Americans have given to them, their expressed motivation to vote, and their enthusiasm about voting compared with past elections — 2014 looks more like lower-turnout years 1998 and 2002 than higher-turnout years 2006 and 2010.
