FILE NAME                                                 HOOCH <Tournament> 2009-2010  <Your  Name> Dems Bad 1NC [Turkey TNWs] Democrats will lose majority  Gandelman 0 6/21/10  (Joe Gandelman, editor in-chief in politics, June 21 st  2010, http://themoderatevoice.com/77370/poll-republican- enthusiasm-for-mid-term-elections-vote-at-all-time-high/) A new      Gallup poll       has      more bad news for Democrats and      good news for Republicans:       it shows Republicans’      and       Republican leaning independents’ enthusiasm for voting in the mid-term elections      as being at an all time high       — and Democrats’ enthusiasm as seriously sagging. It’s no small deal:      mid-term elections      traditionally      have       lower turnout      than a general election      so      the name of      the game is party enthusiasm.      And it looks at this point as       if the      Democrats are losing      this game — badly: An average of      59% of Republicans      and Republican-leaning       independents      have said they are more enthusiastic      than usual about voting this year compared with past       elections,      the highest average      Gallup has      found in      a midterm      election year      for either party      since the question was first       asked in 1994. The prior high for a party group was 50% more enthusiastic for Democrats in 2006, which is the only one of the last five midterm election   years in which Democrats have had an enthusiasm advantage. In that election, Democrats won back control of the U.S. House of Representatives for the   first time since 1994. The current average is based on four measures of this enthusiasm question since February, including the recent June 11-13 USA   Today/Gallup poll. In that poll, 53% of Republicans said they were more enthusiastic than usual about voting and 39% were less enthusiastic, while 35%   of Democrats said they were more enthusiastic about voting and 56% were less enthusiastic. And here’s the truly good news (for GOPers)/bad news (for   Democrats): Gallup notes that
