New Poll Has A Bunch Of Awful News For Democrats

A new Harvard-Harris poll of 1448 registered voters on a wide range of topics provides a lot of unwelcome news to Democrats ahead of the midterm elections.
In a series of rather eye-opening results, many highlighted by writer Eddie Zipperer, the poll paints an increasingly grim picture for Democrats still clinging to hope for any semblance of the "Blue Wave" they once felt so confident was coming.
The poll found that 47% currently approve of Trump's handling of the presidency, which is two points better than last month and about where Rasmussen puts him (and nearly identical to Barack Obama's approval at the same point in his presidency, by the way).
On the economy, a crucial indicator for midterms, the results are devastating for Democrats: 69% say the economy is either "very" or "somewhat" strong (just 31% disagree); 68% say their own financial situation is either improving or about the same (just 26% say it's "getting worse"); 58% approve of Trump's work on stimulating job creation, and about the same number, 57%, approve of his handling of the economy.
