Republicans Much More Optimistic Ahead of Midterms

Pew Research: "With just over two months before the midterm elections, Republican voters are widening the 'expectations gap' with the Democrats. About six-in-ten (61%) Republican and GOP-leaning registered voters think their party will do better than in recent elections -- roughly double the share of Democrats (32%) who feel similarly about their party's chances."

"This gap has not reached the same levels of the GOP's margin before their large 2010 gains or the Democrats' expectations in their 2006 sweep of both houses of Congress."
