Poll: Republicans Lead Democrats in 2014 Midterms

49 percent to 44 percent


The GOP has the advantage heading into 2014's midterm election, according to a new poll from CNN.

Republicans lead Democrats on CNN's generic congressional ballot by 49 percent to 44 percent after the tumultuous start of ObamaCare.

That's a huge 13-point swing from October, when Democrats had the edge following the government shutdown. At that point, Democrats were up by 50 percent to 42 percent on a generic ballot test.
