New Poll Shows Republicans Making Large Gains

HopeTracker | A new Washington Post-ABC News poll portrays an American electorate demaning change. More than seven in 10 Americans disapprove of Congress’s job. Asked about voting in the next elections, Americans were split 46 percent Republicans and Democrats.

According to the Washington Post, as recently as four months ago, Democrats held a 51 to 39 percent advantage on this question.

Obama’s overall approval rating is holding steady, with 51 percent of respondents giving him positive marks and 46 percent rating him negatively. On the big domestic issues — the economy, health care, jobs and the federal budget deficit — bare majorities of Americans disapprove of the job he is doing. via Washington Post
