March's lead comes even as President Donald Trump's approval rating rises, the poll, which was conducted March 10-14, found. However, it's still the lowest approval rating for any modern president at about 14 months into the job.
The NBC/WSJ poll, which surveyed 1,100 adults from March 10-14, shows 50 percent of voters would prefer the democrats controlled congress, compared to the 40 percent who want Congress to remain in the control of Republicans.More news: Pope says prostitution tortures women, apologizes for Catholic 'clients'

The five political parties that have qualified to appear on the ballot are: the Constitution Party, the Democratic Party, the Green Party, the Libertarian Party and the Republican Party.

In stark contrast, the 2016 Election Day exit poll of voters revealed an electorate forced to pick between, as one Democratic wiseguy put it, "the evil of two lessers". In an appearance in India to promote her latest memoirs, Clinton explained: "I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward", and white married women supported Trump because of "ongoing pressure to vote the way that (their) husband, (their) boss, (their) son, whoever, believes (they) should".
All of the usual caveats apply here, of course.
But now it's 2018, and because midterm elections are invariably a referendum on voters' approval or disapproval - professionally and personally - of the current president, Republicans are increasingly unconfident about this November. Why? We'll be able to get some idea of where the Senate is headed as various polling companies begin focusing on the likely competitive races in that body, but the odds are that we won't see much polling at the Congressional District level so, as is usually the case, we'll be headed into the midterms somewhat blind about what the outcome could be.More news: Action 'Lady and the Tramp' Gets 'Lego Ninjago Movie' Director
