A telephone survey of 5,000 likely voters, conducted by ABCD Polling for TheYellowDailyNews, concluded that Americans believe that whichever politicians assume power will finish their terms with the country being worse off.
Analysts, however, questioned the findings of the poll, which had a margin-of-error rating of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
These analysts were suspicious of the number of people ABCD Polling said it polled.
"We find it almost beyond the realm of belief that ABCD Polling found 5,000 people who even knew the mid-term elections were upcoming," said UC Berkeley political scientist Bruce Lamgstein, in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews.
TheYellowDailyNews said in a statement obtained by TheYellowDailyNews that it has asked ABCD Polling to turn over its data to be examined by a third-party mediator.
"We here at TheYellowDailyNews were suspicious with the 5,000 number at the outset, but ABCD Polling assured us the number was legitimate," TheYellowDailyNews said. "When the third-party mediator finishes its examination, TheYellowDailyNews will publish the findings."
