Poll: GOP has edge in 2014 midterms

Republicans lead Democrats on CNN's generic congressional ballot by 49 percent to 44 percent after the tumultuous start of ObamaCare. - The Hill

That's a huge 13-point swing from October, when Democrats had the edge following the government shutdown. At that point, Democrats were up by 50 percent to 42 percent on a generic ballot test.

The new numbers are the latest bad polling news for Democrats, indicating the GOP has a chance to pick up House seats and win control of the Senate.

The poll finds a lack of enthusiasm from both parties' bases — but especially from Democrats.
