Poll: Did GOP peak too early? Are Democrats gaining?

A new “Washington Post/ABC News” poll out this morning shows the GOP with a six-point edge in a generic congressional race. Are the Democrats are making gains with voters?

Martin Frost, former Democratic Congressman from Texas and former head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, tells American Morning he sees a possible silver lining in the poll, “It’s a good sign, the 6% gap that The Washington Post showed is about half of what it was six weeks ago.

But Tom Davis, former Republican Congressman from Virginia and former head of the National Republican Congressional Committee, warns “a six point generic even cutting that to a three-point generic would dictate Republican control of the House.”

    It's not that they peeked too early,they just had a loud screaming match amongst themselves and felt they won when they pressed themselves on the issues of the rich,
    Now maybe if they weren't still scamming(bingo scandal,fiorina,angle,and that never been employed witch in delaware) somebody other than Pac's,and filthy rich snobs would vote for them.

    Plus this election is going to come down to class warfare,
    A battle between those CEO's who make the word bonus their middle name,
    And those of us who continue to fall behind no matter how profitable( we the worker) make the company,
    So if you are rich your vote should go to the republican,
    But if you are struggling to make it paycheck to paychec“
    A vote for the republican's is a vote against yourself..

    The GOP hasn't peaked. The race was over when Obamacare was passed, disregarding the fact 70% of the people did not want it passed. Then as if it does not matter, the democrats voted for it and did not read the bill!
    To me that says, fire me I don't care. Now the democrats are getting fired.
    It's a fact already.
