Poll: R’s To Grab U.S. House

The national poll found that Americans plan to vote for Republicans over Democratic candidates by 50 percent to 44 percent. This is an edge that will likely give Republicans dozens of seats in the House and significant gains in the Senate. The poll numbers suggest Republicans would win about 231 seats in the House to 204 for the Democrats, but Ipsos pollster Cliff Young said Democrats would retain control of the U.S. Senate with a 53-47 or 52-48 seat advantage/Reuters.

Question: Do you agree that the 2 houses of Congress will be split after the election? Or will one party hold both houses?
