(Newser) – Had it up to here with the president and both parties on the Hill? You're a "hater," according to a new poll, and odds are, if there were an election today, you'd vote for a Republican in your House district. Some 72% of haters would choose a GOP rep today, the Washington Post-ABC News poll finds. The proportion who'd go Democrat? Only 14%, the Post reports. Some 34% of haters are Republicans, while 38% are independents with Republican leanings. Some 71% are against ObamaCare. And they're a powerful group, covering a third of voters, up from 28% in 2010. In short, per Sean Sullivan and Scott Clement: Even if Republicans haven't had the best year, "these voters will come home in the end."
