A recent poll from Mclaughlin & Associates showed that Republicans would likely make big wins of Democrats in a hypothetical general congressional ballot next year.
Breitbart News reported that likely voters would choose Republicans over Democrats in almost 50 percent of the time, compared to 44 percent of respondents who choose to vote for hypothetical Democrats and eight percent who were undecided.
“The poll also found that 40 percent of the independent likely general election voters would vote for the Republican, while only 36 percent said Democrat. Twenty-four percent of independents said they were undecided,” Breitbart reported.
Among those who were rated the worst was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who 58 percent of respondents had an unfavorable opinion of. Only about 34 percent of respondents had a favorable opinion of Pelosi and 50 percent thought very unfavorably of her.
“Broken down by party, 91 percent of the Republicans were unfavorable of Pelosi, while 66 percent of the Democrats were favorable of Pelosi. However, when independents were asked, only 28 percent said they found her favorable, while a majority (64 percent) found her unfavorable,” Breitbart reported.
“The Mclaughlin & Associates poll was taken from November 11 to 16, where it surveyed 1,000 likely general election voters. There was no margin of error given. However, 36 percent of the poll respondents were Republican, 36 percent were Democrat, and 27 percent were independent or other.”
Democrats are facing a struggle in their attempt to retain the majority of the House of Representatives and Senate after an epic year of what most would consider a disturbingly bad string of decisions for the nation at large.
To make matters worse, House Democrats have suffered a string of strong Democrats announcing that they won’t be running for reelection, including 17 Democrats who have already announced they won’t be running reelection campaigns in the House, opting to either retire or run n for a different office such as the Senate, or for a position at the local or state level.
