According to the poll, young voters, Latinos, and independents trail other demographics by a significant margin when it comes to overall interest in the upcoming election.
Given that those voting blocks tend to favor Democrats, that could mean trouble for them this fall.
Not a problem. They'll be able to fire up the base in time. They've got 44 whole days to throw around some more rape accusations. https://t.co/N8g13EowLq

This should concern Democrats, particularly the lag among minority and young voters. https://t.co/BUkCXKa9V5

Since 2006, Democrats have not fared well in the midterm elections.
Despite not having a message other than getting rid of President Trump, they are desperately attempting to end that streak this year.
