 There is a significant difference between outstate females and Metro Detroit females.

o Outstate female voters choose the generic Republican candidate by a margin of 40.7%-32.7%.

o But Metro Detroit female voters choose the Democratic candidate by a margin of 17.3%-55.6% -- a 38.3% Democratic
advantage.

 There are two different measures to gauge voters intensity:

o Are you “definitely” or “probably” going to vote.
o How motivated are you to vote on a 1-10 scale.

 70% of likely voters are definitely going to vote compared to 30.0% who say they are probably going to vote. The chart
below looks at the highest percentages that say they are DEFINITELY going to vote by party. A higher percentage of
Independent voters say they will definitely vote than Republican voters.

Party Definitely Voting
Lean Democratic 76.1%
Strong Democratic 70.9%
Independent 70.3%
Strong Republican 68.7%
Lean Republican 64.3%

 A second gauge is how motivated voters are on a 1-10 scale to vote. (The higher the score, the higher the motivation to vote.)
Overall, voters score an 8.9 in their motivation to vote – the highest level of overall motivation we have seen since. And this
level of motivation is 10 months before the election.

The chart below compares motivation to vote by party affiliation for the previous three elections, as compared to the current
climate. While the bases of each party are highly motivated to vote, what is most striking is that the MIDDLE is as highly
motivated to vote as the bases of each party.
