One day before the 2018 midterm elections, a new edition of the George Washington University Politics Poll finds little change in people's attitudes and political preferences since May.

“I think most people know that we live in a world of strong partisanship, which is increasingly evident in congressional voting. But how much partisanship helped stabilize people’s preferences in this election season still surprised me,” said GW Politics Poll co-director John Sides.

The GW Politics Poll is able to provide unique insight by interviewing the exact same group of registered voters three different times ahead of Election Day. Surveys were released in May, July and October.

A total of 2,321 respondents took all three polls, which is 73 percent of the original 3,150 respondents first interviewed in May.
