Democrats took a 15-point lead in a generic ballot test, leading Republicans 47 percent to 32 percent in a new USA Today/Suffolk University poll (Feb. 20-24; 1,000 RVs; +/- 3%). Independents broke for Democrats 39-21 percent. “By close to 2-1, 58%-32%, those surveyed say they want to elect a Congress that mostly stands up to the president, not one that mostly cooperates with him.” (USA Today)
