Sour on economy, more Americans back Republicans: poll

Supporters of Iowa Republican State Senator and U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst wait before a rally on October 11, 2014 in Cedar Rapids, IowaSeven in 10 Americans rate the economy poorly and nearly as many distrust government, giving Republicans the upper hand in the final week before midterm elections, a poll showed Tuesday. Disapproval of President Barack Obama remains high, at 56 percent among likely voters, and people blame Democrats over Republicans for the country’s troubles by a margin of three to one. Three in 10 poll respondents said they will vote in next Tuesday’s midterms to punish the president, more than twice the percentage of people who said they will vote to show support for Obama. This could depress Democratic voter turnout on November 4 and boost chances that Republicans can expand their majority in the House of Representatives and win the six net seats they need to take control of the Senate.
