LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to a new Pew Research-USA Today poll, it's an intimidating turn of events for Democrats ahead of campaign season.

The GOP is at an even stronger point than in previous "wave" elections in 1994 and 2010 and looks poised to make major gains.

Released at the beginning of this week, the poll says that Republicans have a 47-43 lead on the generic congressional ballot, a 10-point swing from October, when Democrats, boosted by GOP blame for the federal government shutdown, held a six-point lead in the Pew poll.

Democrats remain bogged down from the sluggish economy, the unpopularity of the Affordable Care Act and the undesirable views of President Obama. More voters at 26 percent say their vote will be "against" the president. Only 16 percent say their vote will be "for" Obama.

By more than a two-to-one margin, voters say they want the next president to pursue policies different from the Obama administration's priorities.

The Democratic Party is hampered by a lack of enthusiasm. Only 31 percent of Democratic voters say their vote is "for" Obama. In 2010, that number was 47 percent.

Other daunting facts currently facing the Democratic Party include:

--  Obama's approval rating sits at 44 percent, compared with 50 percent who disapprove.

-- Although last Friday's jobs report showed the unemployment rate dropping to its lowest level since 2008, most people at 65 percent say jobs are still difficult to find. And while 25 percent of voters think the economy will get better next year, about an equal number think it'll get worse.

-- The percentage of voters who disapprove of the Affordable Care Act, at 55 percent is still tied for the highest in the law's history.

Overall, it looks as if Republicans are poised for a stronger campaign than their gains in 2010. But it does not appear that they will have gains on par with the Democratic Party in 2006, when Democrats gained six seats in the Senate and 31 in the House amid the peak of President George W. Bush's unpopularity.
