Generic Congressional Ballot

Further into the abyss...
Republican candidates now hold an eight-point lead over Democrats in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot, continuing the GOP's near year-long edge over the competing party but the largest gap between the two in over a month.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for their district's Republican congressional candidate, while 36% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent. Support for Republicans rose a point from last week, while support for Democrats fell two points.

This week’s findings mark the GOP’s largest lead over Democrats since the third week of April, when Republicans posted a 10-point lead over Democrats, a high reached only one time since January and the party’s biggest lead in the history of Rasmussen Reports polling.
