I thought this chart on the upcoming US midterm elections was interesting because independents are tracking Republicans very closely while Democrats are living in a different world regarding Congress.
Here is what Gallup says:
Democrats currently control the House of Representatives, so it follows that Democratic registered voters are more likely than Republican voters to say most members deserve re-election. In the Oct. 14-17 Gallup poll, 59% of Democratic registered voters say most members deserve re-election, compared with 21% of Republicans. At 23%, independents’ views are consistent with those of Republicans.
The first thought that came to mind when read this was this. What do you think?
