Washington, Oct 13 (ANI): Over 40 percent of American voters who once considered themselves as backers of President Obama now say that they either support him less or don't support him at all, according to a Bloomberg National poll.

According to the New York Daily News, with exactly three weeks to go for the midterm elections, voters seem to dislike both parties, but Republicans appear likely to make big gains in the House and Senate.

"They are the lesser of two evils," one of the respondents from Texas said of Republicans.

Though the Democrats hold a 47 percent to 45 percent advantage in favourability over the GOP, independent voters prefer Republicans by six points as compared to Democrats.

Most of the motivated voters think that Republicans have a strong 51 percent to 37 percent lead.

The GOP is reported to be gradually gaining support for its "Pledge to America," the party's vague set of proposals that aims to cut taxes and slash roughly 100 billion dollars from the federal budget in 2011, the paper said.

In order to win control of the House, Republicans must grab 39 seats and 10 seats over the Senate on Election Day, the paper said. (ANI)
