FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
While President Obama and Mitt Romney are neck-and-neck in the polls, it appears the president's supporters are more fired up to hit the voting booth.
A new Washington Post/ABC News poll shows 75% of Mr. Obama's supporters say their vote is "for" him while 23% say they're voting against Romney.
Compare that to only 37% of Romney's supporters who say their vote is "for" Romney, 59% say they're voting against the president.
There was a similar trend back in 2004. President Bush's supporters were firmly behind him, while most of John Kerry's supporters were voting "against" Bush.
This poll also shows President Obama benefiting from an enthusiasm gap - although it's shrinking.
More than half of his supporters back him "very enthusiastically" compared with 38% of Romney's supporters.
Of course it's not all roses for the president. When it comes to the #1 issue of the economy, 54% of all adults and 60% of independents give Mr. Obama negative marks. He also gets negative ratings on health care and immigration.
Plus, two-thirds of Americans think the country is seriously off course and a majority have not approved of the president's job performance in this poll for more than a year.
Nonetheless in what's shaping up to be a tight race, motivating voters could make the difference between who wins and who loses.
This poll suggests most voters have already made up their minds and are unlikely to change candidates.
And to try to get you motivated, the campaigns will bury you under TV ads, E-mails, phone calls, you name it in the three and a half months remaining.
Here’s my question to you: How motivated are you to vote in November?

FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
Barring some cataclysmic surprise as election day nears and people decide who they're going to vote for, it will likely come down to what it always comes down to - the answer to that eternal question: How am I doing?
In 2008 President Obama won by promising to change America.
And he has. Trouble is some people think he's changed it for the worse.
Mitt Romney remains pretty much an unknown, except for his time as governor of Massachusetts.
He wants lower taxes, fewer regulations, more defense spending, and an end to what he calls the "kick in the gut" of 8.2% unemployment.
The wild card for the winner of the presidential election is Congress.
The Democrats control the Senate. The Republicans control the House. And unless that changes, it's doubtful whoever wins is going to get much done.
But one thing's for certain: This is not the same country President Obama took over when he was inaugurated in January of 2009.
Our standard of living continues to decline and our National Debt has passed the point of no return
The middle class is rapidly disappearing and the hope that President Obama spoke of along with change is increasingly tough to come by.
The fact is the U.S. may have changed forever. And not for the better.
Here’s my question to you: What kind of "change" did President Obama deliver?
