Republicans Have Edge Despite Party Divisions

A new New York Times/CBS News poll finds Republicans "are in a stronger position than Democrats for this year's midterm elections, benefiting from the support of self-described independents, even though the party itself is deeply divided and most Americans agree more with Democratic policy positions."

The generic ballot shows Republicans with a 42% to 39% lead.

Key finding: "There is a sense of foreboding in the public as well, with 63 percent of Americans saying the country is on the wrong track, and 57 percent indicating that they disapprove of Mr. Obama's handling of the economy. In addition, eight in 10 Americans are dissatisfied or angry with the way things are going in Washington."
