Why the 2014 US midterm polls matter


Will the Democrats lose control of the US Senate? If analysts are correct, they will, come November 4, when millions of voters from sea to shining sea go to the polling booths (or have already done so days before) and choose their next lawmakers, and even local officials. With a damaged image – no thanks to an unpopular Barack Obama, a dismal economy, many other factors – Democrats are poised to become the minority party in Congress, and the Republicans will take control of both Senate and House. This does not bode well for Obama, as he tries to get things done, with around two years left in his term. Whatever happens on Election Day, the United States will most probably remain deeply divided along party lines – and nervous about their future.
