If the election were today, some U.S. House generic ballot estimates would be very wrong. African-Americans feel their relationship with the police has worsened in the past two decades. And time has vastly changed opinions of gay rights. This is HuffPollster for Friday, August 15, 2014.
AMERICANS ARE FRUSTRATED WITH PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE IN WASHINGTON - Dana Blanton: "With less than three months until Election Day, the Democratic Party is better liked than the Republican Party, but voters are equally frustrated with both. A new Fox News national poll finds the same percentage is extremely or very ?frustrated and upset? with congressional Republicans and congressional Democrats -- 44 percent each. That?s more than say they feel that way toward President Obama (40 percent frustrated and upset), incumbents in general (38 percent) or members of the Tea Party in Congress (35 percent). The most frustration is saved for the news media: 48 percent are extremely or very frustrated and upset with the press (but 49 percent aren?t)...It?s August. Obviously it isn?t Election Day. If it were, the poll finds that 46 percent of voters would back the Democratic candidate in their House district and 39 percent the Republican." [Fox]
