Poll: union households part of GOP shift
With polls opening in less than 24 hours, one core Democratic constituency, labor union households, may be more splintered than in the past, according to the new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Union households back the Democratic candidate in their district over the GOP by a 54 to 42 percent margin, lower than the 64 to 34 percent split in 2006 and the worst performance for Democrats among labor union households in exit polling dating back to 1976. Since 1976, labor union households have backed Democratic Congressional candidates by an average margin of 62 to 35 percent.
