Q-poll shows parties neck-and-neck on generic ballot

in Uncategorized by

A new Quinnipiac University poll of registered voters just out shows Democrats with a statistically-insignificant, two-point edge on the generic ballot, 41 percent to 39 percent – unchanged since Democrats surrendered their nine-point lead at the outset of last year’s government shutdown.

Voters have better impressions of the Democratic Party than the GOP, but they are just as likely to say they want Republicans to win the House and Senate (46 percent) than Democrats (44 percent). Results of the same poll, released last week, showed President Barack Obama’s approval rating at just 40 percent.
