Poll: Americans Say Midterm Election Outcome Won’t Fix Economy

Half of Americans say it really doesn’t matter which party wins control of Congress this November because they say it won’t make much difference for the economy.

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenburg survey finds just 25% say the economy will bet better if Democrats control Congress and 23% say the same for Republicans.

That result is curious as nearly half of voters say they will base their vote on economic conditions and the job market. 20% say healthcare is the most important factor in deciding how they will vote, 15% say education, 7% say foreign policy and 6% say the deficit.

The survey also found that nearly half of Americans say the Affordable Care Act was a bad idea compared with just 38% who like Obamacare.
