The U.S. midterms, taking place on November 6, are a huge test for both sides of the political spectrum. Republicans are determined to hold onto their slim control of Congress - and maybe even swing it further into their favor - while the Democrats are desperate to win it back and make a strong anti-Trump
statement to the country and the world.
As a new Gallup survey
shows, these sentiments are resulting in strong levels of engagement among the two parties' supporters. 74 percent of both Republican and Democrat voters said that they are 'certain' to vote on Tuesday. A large share on both sides also said that they are especially enthusiastic about these midterms. With GOP and Dem voters due to come out in force, it is likely to prove a very tight affair.
