American voters favor Democrats over Republicans by 14 points in the nation's races for the House of Representatives, a new Quinnipiac University Poll released Wednesday reveals. 

The telephone poll of 1,038 voters nationwide showed that voters back Democrats over Republicans by 52-38 percent. Further, independent voters back Democrats over Republicans by 50-35 percent, according to the poll.

By the numbers:

  • Democrats lead by 48 - 42 percent among men.
  • Women favor Democrats by 55 - 35 percent.
  • White voters favor Republicans by 48 - 45 percent.
  • Black voters pick Democrats by 84 - 7 percent.
  • Hispanic voters favor Democrats by 64 - 22 percent.

In addition, the poll showed that voters disapprove by 72-18 percent of the job Congress is doing, and 58-27 percent said Congress should serve as more of a check on President Donald Trump.

Republicans, however, said by 62 to 11 percent that Congress does enough to check Trump. Overall, voters said by 56 - 36 percent that they do not want to see impeachment proceedings begin against Trump.

The poll carried a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
