Washington, July 30 (ANI): Despite the Republicans leading the Democrats by an 11 percentage-point margin 100 days ahead of the midterm polls, a majority of Americans believe that a Republican takeover of Congress would not lead to positive change, according to a Fox News poll.

Thirty-eight percent of the voters think that there would be no real change if the Republicans gain control of Congress. Thirty-seven percent think it would lead to change for the better, while 21 percent say it would change for the worse.

Thirty-three percent of the Republicans think there would be no change. However, 63 percent think that it would be an improvement if they come to power.

Less than half of Democrats (45 percent) say a Republican takeover would lead to a change for the worse, while 38 percent believe that there would be no real difference.

For independents, 35 percent think a Republican takeover would lead to change for the better, 17 percent say change for the worse, while a 44-percent plurality says no change.

Voters in general are more than three times as likely to disapprove (71 percent) compared to 21 percent who would approve of the job Congress is doing today.

The poll also revealed that with less than 100 days until the midterm elections, if Americans were heading to the voting booth today, they would back the Republican candidate in their district over the Democrat by 47-36 percent. Two weeks ago the Republicans had a slimmer 4-point advantage of 41-37 percent. (ANI)
