2014: Turbulence ahead for the Democrats

By Richard K. Barry

Well, here's some bad news for Democrats, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll conducted between March 20-24:
Thirty-seven percent in the poll last month chose Republicans, compared to 36 percent who said they would rather see Democrats in charge, with the November general elections seven months away.


[R]egistered voters, who are most strongly interested in politics, favored the Republicans by 14 percentage points -- 51 percent to 37 percent. In January, they were about evenly split, with 42 percent preferring Democrats and 45 percent the Republicans.

Just to help us unpack the obvious, former senior Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod tweeted this:

I do wish progressives would figure out that all elections matter, not just the ones with a rock star at the top of the ticket.
