Battleground Poll Shows House in Play

A new Democracy Corps survey in 50 of the most competitive battleground Congressional districts shows the new Republican majority in the House of Representatives very much at risk in 2012.

Key finding: "The GOP incumbents, identified by name, have an average approval rating of 35 percent across the 50 districts, with 25 percent disapproving. Another 38 percent were not able to give the candidates a rating, suggesting lack of visibility. This is about 10 points lower than the approval rating Democratic incumbents held in July of 2009 (with comparable disapproval rating)."

Also, 40% of voters in these districts say that they will vote to reelect their incumbent, while 45% say that they "can't vote to reelect" the incumbent.
