Poll: Dems Face Trouble This Year

A new Pew Research Center/USA Today poll finds that low approval ratings for President Obama as well as dissatisfaction with the economy and the health care reform law spell bad news for Democrats ahead of the 2014 midterm elections. Democrats hoping to hold the Senate and make gains in the House during this year’s midterm elections are going up against the worst political landscape they’ve faced in at least 20 years, according to a new poll. The Pew Research Center/USA Today survey released Monday found that 47% of registered voters either support the Republican candidate in their district or lean in that direction, while 43% favor or lean Democratic. That’s the lowest level of support Democrats have had around this point in the midterm election cycles since 1994, the year Republicans retook the House for the first time in four decades/Time.

Question: Do you think Republicans will control both houses of Congress when the smoke clears in November?
