Polling Ahead of the Midterms


(WBRE/WYOU-TV)  Some political analysts say this is the most important mid-term in the nation’s history.

     Polling data is starting to surface regarding those races up for grabs.  The I-Team’s Andy  Mehalshick has the story from Your Local Election Headquarters.

  “I’m afraid that the people who are the casual voters the casual viewers the casual readers will see a lot of this stuff as white noise” so says political analyst David Yonki.. He is reacting to a CNN poll that shows the Democrats holding a 13 point lead over Republicans among likely voters on a generic congressional ballot

 “I think the people who are doing the polling now are a little more sophisticated and are getting a better cross-section of people.”

 Voters we spoke with say while polling numbers may change. But what won’t change is the emotion surrounding the mid-terms.  “I think politics has become too controversial too divisive. I no longer voice my opinion in a group of people if I don’t know their politics beforehand.” Said Abbe Kruger of Shavertown.

  “People are extremely passionate about their politics right now. I think since the last election people are very one-sided with their political party. It kind of upsets me that you see people losing friends over politics.” Added Charlene Murdock, of Sugarloaf.
