Gallup: Polls show Democrats have the edge in favorability ratings


    Now that the dust is settling a bit over the government shutdown and the healthcare exchanges, we touch base with Frank Newport, editor in chief of the Gallup Poll to see how the parties are doing in the public’s mind.

    Newport also gives us an update on American’s satisfaction with the way things are going in the U.S. and in their own personal lives.
