WASHINGTON - Two weeks before Election Day, most of the nation's likely voters now expect the Republican Party to take control of the U.S. Senate. And by a 47 to 39 percent margin, they say that's the outcome they'd like to see.

According to an Associated Press-GfK poll, Republicans hold advantages on top issues like the economy and protecting the country. Yet, relatively few voters have a positive view of the party. About 7 in 10 are dissatisfied by its leaders in Congress. At the same time, impressions of the Democratic Party among likely voters have grown more negative in the past month.

The economy remains the top issue for voters. Also considered deeply important: health care, terrorism, the threat posed by the Islamic State group and Ebola.
