Friday morning, Charlie Cook of National Journal focused on the dramatic turn polls are taking against Democrats, due to the ObamaCare rollout debacle. If the 2014 election were held today, Republicans would gain seats in Congress - Democrat-leaning voters seem to be very unhappy:
Cook writes about what caused the dramatic drop off:
Then, in mid-October, the focus shifted from the government-shutdown fiasco to a different debacle, this time a Democratic disaster: the botched launch of the Obamacare website and subsequent implementation problems of the health care law, including termination notices going out to many people who had insurance coverage. The Democratic numbers from the generic-ballot test dropped from 45 percent to 37 percent, and Republicans moved up to 40 percent. This 10-point net shift from a Democratic advantage of 7 points to a GOP edge of 3 points in just over a month is breathtaking, perhaps an unprecedented swing in such a short period. Occurring around Election Day, such a shift would probably amount to the difference between Democrats picking up at least 10 House seats, possibly even the 17 needed for a majority, and instead losing a half-dozen or so seats.
Cook says it's still way too early to tell what will happen a year from now, but voters aren't happy right now with ObamaCare and that could spell disaster for Democrats and good news for Republicans.
