Poll Indicators Still Look Good For Democrats
These charts reflect the latest result of the weekly Economist / YouGov Poll -- done between July 22nd and 24th of a nationwide sample of 1.500 adults, with a margin of error of 2.8 points.
It shows that the public is still very unhappy with the GOP-dominated 115th Congress. Only 11% say they approve of the job Congress is doing, while 58% disapprove -- a negative gap of 47 points! With a Republican president, who is also upside-down in his job approval numbers, those are not the kind of poll numbers that will inspire voters to let the GOP continue as the dominant party in Congress.
Add to that the feeling of most Americans that the country is currently on the wrong track (52% wrong track to 36% right direction) and you have the recipe for a Republican disaster in November.
