The National Survey of Electorate Participation (NSEP) conducted by the Pew Research Center and conducted in 2018 found that nearly two-thirds of the country’s registered voters (65%) reported voting in the presidential election.
In contrast, only 39% of registered voters in Alabama reported voting for president, and only 39.9% of the American people voted in the 2016 general election.
However, voter turnout for midterm elections remains very low, at about 40% of eligible voters casting a ballot.
That is the lowest level in more than two decades.
The data suggests that voters who did not vote in the 2018 midterm elections, such as voters who have moved to other states or who had their registrations suspended, are unlikely to participate in next year’s elections.
“This is a really sad reflection of how America is going,” said Adam Jentleson, the director of the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Elections at Rutgers University.
“It’s really striking how little voter participation is going to make a difference in midterm elections.”
Jentleso noted that the election results were driven largely by changes in the makeup of the electorate and the demographics of eligible registered voters.
“We have a huge amount of eligible people and eligible voters, and that’s where we are heading.”
For example, in the past decade, the population of college-educated white voters has declined.
However it has remained relatively constant for black and Hispanic voters.
And for women, they have been steadily declining.
This is particularly true for white women, who have been the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, with a 25.9 percent increase in registered voters since 2010, according to the National Women’s Law Center.
According to the Pew study, white women make up 63% of those eligible voters who voted for Donald Trump, while black women make 50.6% of that number.
The share of white women who cast ballots for Trump increased from 15.6 percent in 2012 to 18.6.
For the same group of voters, Hispanic voters made up 6.9%.
Jentlson said the problem with the survey is that it does not include data from the counties in which eligible voters live.
“In addition, there’s no way to tell whether these people are going to turn out,” he said.
“There are people who are still eligible and who are going away, and there are people in the middle who will be ineligible, but if you look at where these people live, there is no reason to think they’re going to vote in 2018.
The reason they aren’t voting is because they can’t get a mail ballot or are not eligible.”
The results of the survey are important for understanding the country and its politics.
It’s important to understand the electorate, Jentlsons said.
“It’s not a survey of the people who will vote, it’s a survey that tells us who the people are who are actually going to be voting in 2018,” he added.
“There is a huge number of people who say they’re not voting in midterm [terms] because they don’t believe they’ll vote in midterm, because they’re too busy trying to get married, because their kids are going out and they’re getting ready to move, or they’re trying to make their own lives and it’s not their thing, because it’s too stressful.
It doesn’t mean they’re voting for Trump.”
According to Jentelson, one of the reasons for the decline in voter turnout in midterm election is that voters are no longer living in the same geographic areas as their predecessors.
“When you get a population moving into different areas, you get the same kind of changes in demographics that we see in a lot of other areas,” he explained.
Jentelsons said the survey has also found that older voters are far less likely to vote than younger voters.
“Voters 65 and older are much more likely to stay home, they’re far less concerned about their health, they tend to not vote, and they are more likely than younger people to say that they’re staying home to vote,” he noted.
“We don’t see a lot more people voting under 30.
We see a big decline in people who have never voted in an election.”
For instance, in 2016, only 25% of Americans aged 65 and over voted in midterm midterm elections.
In 2018, that number is 64%.
Jentsons also noted that people who do vote are far more likely in some states to do so for a Democratic candidate, than they are in other states.
For example in Alabama, for every person who voted in 2018, seven were Democrats and three were Republicans.
In Tennessee, for each person who participated in 2018 and voted in 2020, eight were Democrats, six were Republicans, and three did not cast a ballot in the election.
“Alabama is one of those
