Voters Prefer GOP-led Congress

NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg is out with a new poll that finds that Republicans’ national lead appears to be building nine days before Election Day, with likely voters preferring a GOP-led Congress by a wide margin, 52% to 41%.

“While neither party can boast stellar approval ratings, those surveyed gave Republicans better marks when asked whether what they’ve heard, seen or read in the past few weeks has made them feel more or less favorable towards either party.

Among likely voters, 25 percent said they’re feeling better about the Democratic Party, compared to 53 percent who are feeling worse — a net negative of 28 points.

For Republicans, 35 percent said the last few weeks have made them more favorable towards the GOP, versus 40 percent who are more down on the party — a net negative of only five points.”
