WASHINGTON (AP) - An Associated Press-GfK Poll finds that Americans feel the same way about Democrats as they do about Republicans. They scorn them both.
Sixty percent of those surveyed disapprove of the job congressional Democrats are doing. But 68 percent frown on how Republicans are performing. While 59 percent are unhappy with how Democrats are handling the economy, 64 percent are upset by the GOP's work on the country's top issue. Just over half have unfavorable views of each party.
Despite the GOP's weak report card, registered voters divide evenly over which party's congressional candidate they support. That expands to a slight Republican edge among likely voters, reflecting a deeper interest that GOP supporters express in the Nov. 2 elections.
