'Voters are less likely to vote for congressional Democrats because they are disappointed with how President Obama is handling his job, according to a new poll released Monday by McClatchy.
By a 42 percent-32 percent margin, voters say that, because of the president, they’re more likely to vote for a Republican candidate this fall. And, for the first time, Republicans are winning the generic ballot measure, with voters more likely to say they’d vote for a GOP candidate by a 43 percent-38 percent margin.
The troubling signs for Democrats are due in no small part to the president’s dwindling approval rating. Just 4 in 10 say they approve of how Obama is handling his job, tying for the lowest level in three years.'
