Third of U.S. midterm election voters don't know candidates

October 4, 2018 -- Just weeks before midterm elections for control of the U.S. Congress, a third of voters do not know the name of their party’s candidate for office.

A new poll finds 34 percent of Republican voters and 32.5 percent of Democratic voters do not know the names of the party's congressional candidates in their districts. However, this level of candidate name recognition is about in line with recent elections, according to the University of North Carolina.

Latest polling data also shows 54 percent of U.S. adults disapprove of the way President Trump is handling the presidency, with voters possibly viewing the midterms as a referendum on him.

Gender could play a role in the upcoming vote too, according to George Washington University, with the #MeToo movement and protests around Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh possibly affecting the outcome.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
