A new Gallup poll shows registered voters are evenly split over whether they will vote for a Republican or a Democrat in the November congressional elections. The two parties are tied at 46 percent, The Hill reports.
That’s a cause for joy among Republicans, because given Democrats’ advantage of incumbency, they should be substantially ahead if they hope to retain control of Congress.
In addition, President Barack Obama’s approval rating has slipped to 44 percent. "This is not an auspicious sign for Democrats, because history shows that presidents who have sub-50 percent approval ratings prior to mid-term elections generally see their parties suffer large congressional seat losses," Gallup researchers wrote.
