USA Today/Pew Poll: Democrats Have 2014 Edge
Posted by Phoenix Woman on December 13, 2013
Gee, I wonder why this wasn’t on the evening TV news tonight?
A new poll released on Friday by USA Today and Pew Research shows that voters prefer Democrats to Republicans in a generic Congressional vote. The results showed that 48% of respondents would vote for a Democratic candidate if the 2014 midterms were held today, while 44% would vote Republican. This compares favorably with their previous poll during the government shutdown, when 49% favored Dems against 43% for the GOP.
This, mind you, is after nearly two solid months of “Obamacare sucks” stories in the media.
Now that Obamacare has faded as a punching bag — perhaps because of the growing number of people who like it — the poll numbers for the Democrats are recovering.
