Pew/USA Today Poll: The GOP Midterm Tsunami Cometh

Pew/USA Today Poll: The GOP Midterm Tsunami Cometh

With only 183 days until the Nov. 4 midterm elections, a new Pew Research/USA Today poll shows Obamacare and the bleak jobs picture have coalesced to put Democrats in a weaker political position than they were before the historic GOP 2010 midterm tsunami that resulted in the largest defeat for a newly elected president in a midterm since 1922.  

At this time in 2010, 44% of voters said they planned to vote for a Republican. Today, 47% plan to vote for a GOP candidate. 

The poll shows that the Obama economy’s inability to create a climate conducive to job creation is taking a heavy toll, with 65% of respondents saying jobs are difficult to find in their communities. 

Disapproval of Obamacare also hit an all-time high, with 55% disapproving of President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement. Obamacare has been in effect for over four years. 

The Pew/USA Today poll found that jobs, Obamacare, and the deficit are the top issues on voters’ minds.
