Poll shows Dem enthusiasm bump for midterms
A Fox News poll shows Democrats are equally as motivated about the midterms as Republicans.
Why it matters: That's a shift from previous polling, which showed Republicans with a significant enthusiasm advantage. So it's a glimmer of encouraging news for Dems in an otherwise rough survey.
What's happening: Democratic strategists credit the Supreme Court's abortion ruling as a motivating force for otherwise-disillusioned Democrats to show up for the midterms.
🥊 Reality check: Democrats have made incremental gains in several recent polls. But the overall picture remains bleak for them.
