Democrats' Hopes for Senate Control Dim - New Poll Finds Voter Sourness Toward Obama, Concern Over Nation's Course

From The Wall Street Journal:

Voter sourness toward President Barack Obama and unease over the country's future are dimming the Democrats' chances of retaining the Senate in the November midterm elections.

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found a larger share of Americans think the country is on the wrong track than at any previous midterm election in the past 20 years. Mr. Obama's approval rating—40%—is lower than that of former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton at this stage of their own midterm meltdowns in 2006 and 1994, when both suffered significant losses in Congress.

"The news is not good for Democrats," said Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who conducts the Journal poll with Republican Bill McInturff. "It's hard to sugarcoat these findings, which herald a tough election."
