Stepp for Congress here repeats the results of the Los Angeles Times Times/Bloomberg Poll as reported April 13, 2006.
"The poll contained ominous findings for Republican House and Senate majorities as the midterm elections approached.
" Although President Bush's job approval rating was essentially unchanged from his 38% showing last month, the new poll found Democrats opening double-digit leads on key measures of voters' early preferences for the November balloting.
"Democrats lead Republicans 49% to 35% among registered voters who were asked which party they intended to support in their congressional districts this fall. When registered voters were asked which party they hoped would control the House and Senate after the midterm election, 51% picked the Democrats and 38% the GOP.
"On both questions, independent voters preferred Democrats by ratios of about 3 to 1 or more."
"The nationwide Times/Bloomberg poll contacted 1,357 adults, including 1,234 registered voters, from Saturday through Tuesday. The survey, supervised by Times Polling Director Susan Pinkus, has a margin of sampling error for both groups of plus or minus 3 percentage points."
