House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hopes of Democrats recovering before the midterm elections have been dashed as a new Rasmussen poll shows that Republicans have doubled their lead on the generic congressional ballot.
The poll, released on Friday, found that U.S. voters prefer Republican candidates by seven points.
