National Polls Show Close Race in 2010

Although the Democratic Party probably won’t lose its Congressional House majority in 2010, a variety of polls appear to show a difficult House election for Democrats.

President Job Approval
Barack Obama’s job approval rating is the mid- to low 50-percent rating. Sub-50 percent ratings at mid-term presage major loss for the President’s party.

Congressional Job Approval
Congressional job approval is another indicator that the Congressional party (now Democrat) could be in trouble.

Current Congressional job approval is 21 points. It is below the Republican’s disastrous rating of 26 percent in late 2006, or the 23 percent Democrats had before they lost their majority in 1994.
