(CNN) - President Barack Obama holds a nine-point lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney thanks in part to the perception that the president is more likeable and more in touch with the problems facing women and middle class Americans, according to a new national poll.

by Albert N. Milliron One year before the 2012 election, Congressional Job approval remains at all time lows.

(CNN) – When it comes to the political landscape three months before the midterm elections take place, is everything that’s old new again? A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey paints a picture that is markedly similar to that of August, 1994, when few people predicted that in only three short months the Republican Party would snatch 54 seats from the Democrats and wrestle control of the House from the beleaguered party. Sixteen years later, Republican candidates for Congress have a three-point advantage in the “generic ballot” question – virtually the same position they held at the same time in 1994. President Obama has an all-time high disapproval rating almost on par with that of Bill Clinton’s 16 years ago. And Republican voters are feeling an intense [...]
