Poll: Republicans Have Gained Upper Hand in Congressional Elections

by Katrina Trinko

Americans may hate Congress, but they’re becoming increasingly inclined to prefer Republicans serving there rather than Democrats, reports USA Today:

For the first time during this campaign cycle, the GOP has an advantage in congressional elections. By 50%-44%, those surveyed say they’re likely to vote for the Republican congressional candidate. The two parties were tied in the USA TODAY Poll in February, and Democrats had a 7-point advantage last August.
