WASHINGTON (AP) - House Democrats say focusing on economic issues while portraying Republicans as beholden to corporate interests could help the party connect with voters in the 2014 elections.

New York Rep. Steve Israel says its polling and research finds that Democrats have an advantage with voters on economic issues. He says Republicans are vulnerable to charges they help corporations and the wealthy at the expense of typical voters.

Israel leads the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. He briefed reporters Wednesday on a research project the party hopes to use to help it connect with people who typically turn out in presidential elections but skip voting in mid-term elections.

Republicans hold a 34-seat advantage in the House and Democrats are trying to prevent more losses heading into President Barack Obama's final two years.
