Two Very Different Views of 2014

Amy Walter: "Republicans are counting on the national political environment to sweep the GOP to victory. A recent post by the GOP polling firm Public Opinion Strategies suggests that Democrats are headed for a disastrous midterm by pointing out that on five of six 'key national measures' such as perceptions of the economy and the president's approval ratings, the 'results are worse for the president and Democrats than the comparable findings on the last weekend heading into the 2010 election.'"

"Democrats, meanwhile, are counting on making this an 'all politics is local' election. Touting a strong targeting and turnout operation, as well as a tarnished GOP brand, Democrats argue that their candidates will be able to overcome the drag coming from President Obama and DC."

"So, who's right?"
