Support for Democratic Congress Increases
Rasmussen reports that the generic preference for Democrats to control Congress has increased to a 48% to 33% lead, representing a five point jump for Democrats in the last two weeks.
Before Democrats get overly confident, note that while the public trusts Democrats over Republicans, Gallup finds that many Americans believe members of both parties are corrupt. There’s no doubt that GOP misinformation that the Abramoff scandle affects both parties is responsible for some of this perception. The Washington Post also notes a trend to throw out the incumbents of both parties.
