Poll: Plurality of Midterm Voters Want GOP to Control Congress

fire-Reid-Protesters-AP

A plurality of likely voters in the midterms want Republicans to control Congress.

A recent Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 49% to 44% of registered voters “said they’d prefer the election to produce a Republican-led Congress, a first since the poll began asking five weeks ago.”

While “Democrats carried a 10-point lead among low-interest voters,” Republicans had a 10-point lead “among voters who said they were highly interested in the election.” The GOP also held a two-point overall lead among registered voters in the poll, which was conducted Oct. 10-16 and has a margin of error of /- 3.56 percentage points.

Republicans need to net six Senate seats to take back control of the Senate.
