Yet more results from the latest CNN/ORC national survey (story,
results) of
1,029 adults (conducted 6/22 through 6/24) finds:

  • Although fewer adults approve (42%) than disapprove (49%) "what the Democratic leaders in the U.S. House and Senate have done so far this year," a majority says it is good (57%) rather than bad (31%) "that the Democratic Party is in control of the Congress."
  • The "Democratic Party" receives a net positive rating (51% favorable, 38% unfavorable), while the ratings of the "Republican Party" are net negative (36% favorable, 53% unfavorable).
  • Among 907 registered voters, Democrats begin with a twelve point lead (53% to 41%) in the generic Congressional vote.
