Voters aren’t satisfied with Republicans’ return to control of the House, according to a new poll by Newsweek/Daily Beast. The survey shows they want the GOP to take over the Senate as well in next year’s elections.

GOP, control, Congress, voters, pollOf the likely voters surveyed in the poll, 54 percent want to see the 2012 elections propel Republicans to full control of Congress, compared to only 39 percent who want to see the Democrats in control.

But voters aren’t too thrilled with current congressmen from either party.

Republicans garner a 42 percent approval rating, compared to 39 percent for Democrats. GOP House Speaker John Boehner has a higher approval rating — 40 percent — than Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — 27 percent.
