Republican Race is Helping Democrats

A new Pew Research survey shows the Republican presidential nomination battle is rallying Democrats behind President Obama.

Key finding: 49% of Democrats say that as they learn more about the GOP candidates, their impression of Obama is getting better. That compares to just 36% of Democrats who expressed this view in December.

In contrast, there has been virtually no change in Republicans' views of the GOP field over this same period. Just 26% of Republicans say their impression of the GOP field has improved as they have learned more about the candidates, largely unchanged from the 30% who felt that way in December.
