CNN Poll: CNN Poll: GOP have a 5 point advantage over Democrats in 2014

CNN is reporting that Republicans have a 49%-44% edge over Democrats in a generic ballot, a key 2014 midterm election indicator, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll.

Democratic voters seem particularly unenthusiastic about voting, which is likely to benefit the GOP. Another Republican advantage is President Barack Obama’s standing with the public. The President may be a drag on Democratic congressional candidates — more than half of registered voters say they are more likely to vote for a candidate who opposes Obama than one who supports him.
