America split on forcing Donald Sterling to sell Clippers

Should Donald Sterling be forced to sell his team – The Los Angeles Clippers?

According to a CNN / ORC Poll – Americans are split.

60% of NBA fans said yes, but when it comes to the public at large - just 41% said yes.

So is it about race?  Or could it be the fact that some see this as an invasion when it comes to a person's right to say what they want in the privacy of their own home?

Is Pres. Obama dragging down the Democratic party?

Washington (CNN) – What a difference a month makes.

A new CNN/ORC International poll indicates a dramatic turnaround in the battle for control of Congress in next year's midterm elections.

Democrats a month ago held a 50%-42% advantage among registered voters in a generic ballot, which asked respondents to choose between a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district without identifying the candidates.

CNN/ORC poll: Democrats lose 2014 edge following Obamacare uproar

That result came after congressional Republicans appeared to overplay their hand in the bitter fight over the federal government shutdown and the debt ceiling.

But the Democratic lead has disappeared. A new CNN/ORC poll indicates the GOP now holds a 49%-47% edge.

The new survey was conducted last week and released Tuesday.

The 10-point swing follows a political uproar over Obamacare, which included the botched rollout of HealthCare.gov and controversy over insurance policy cancelations due primarily to the new health law.
