PPP Polling: Bad news for Congressional Republicans

PPP's newest national poll finds that after a little more than 3 months in charge House Republicans have fallen so far out of favor with the American public that it's entirely possible Democrats could take control of the House back next year....
.....The key to this strong movement back toward the Democrats right now is the same as the key to the strong movement away from the Democrats last year- fickle independents quickly growing unhappy with the party in power......
If there was an election for Congress today, would you vote for the Democratic or Republican candidate from your district?

Democrat 46%
Republican 41%
Not sure 13%

Do you think the Republicans are doing a better job than the Democrats did while in charge of the House of Representatives, a worse job, or is it about the same?

Better job 36%
Worse job 43%
About the same 19%
Not sure 2%

Would you describe the Democratic Party more as mainstream or extremist?

Mainstream 46%
Extremist 39%
Not sure 15%

Would you describe the Republican Party more as mainstream or extremist?

Mainstream 40%
Extremist 48%
Not sure 12%

Would you describe yourself as very liberal, somewhat liberal, moderate, somewhat conservative, or very conservative?

Very liberal 8%
Somewhat liberal 18%
Moderate 34%
Somewhat conservative 27%
Very conservative 14%
