Democrats Lead in NYT/CBS Poll
There’s a new New York Times/CBS Poll coming out tomorrow. Here are the key highlights:
Democrats Lead on Congressional Ballot By 15. With less than seven weeks until Election Day, 50% of voters say they will vote for Democrats in the midterm elections, while only 35% are voting for a Republican.
Bush Got NO Bump Out of Latest Terror/Iraq Speeches. After the latest round of speeches in which he tried to tie Iraq to the war on terror, including the fifth anniversary of 9/11, Bush’s approval rating is still just 37%, virtually unchanged from the last survey. And Bush’s approval ratings on the war on terror haven’t changed at all since the last poll.
Americans – and Even Republicans – Have Anger Towards GOP Congress That Mirrors 1994. The current alienation of the Republican Congress is as intense as it has been since the bombshell election of 1994, signaling the challenge Republicans face in trying to maintain their control. 78% of voters – including two-thirds of Republicans – said most members of Congress don’t deserve to be re-elected and it’s time for a change, the highest number since 1994.
Voters Agree That GOP Has Run a “Do-Nothing” Congress. Two-thirds of Americans agree that the GOP has run a do-nothing Congress. In fact, most people can’t name a single accomplishment.
