New Poll: GOP Has Biggest Lead on ‘Which Party Better Deals With the Economy’ in History

Political observers across Washington, D.C. are expecting a ‘blue wave’ to sweep Democrats into control of the House in November, but any limits to those gains two weeks from now may be thanks to the GOP’s strong handling of the economy.

A new poll from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, released Sunday, found that Republicans have “their largest lead [over Democrats] on the economy in the poll’s history.”

The poll also finds Republicans with a 15-point advantage on the question of which party better deals with the economy — their biggest lead on this question in the poll’s history.

Forty-three percent of registered voters say the GOP better handles the economy, while 28 percent pick the Democrats; the GOP held a 14-point edge on this question in August.

It’s no wonder voters give the GOP high marks. The unemployment rate is at a 49-year low, and the country is adding tens of thousands of jobs per month.
