Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 47%, Democrats 36%

How the GOP acts in the next 6 months will tell if this holds or not.
Generic Congressional Ballot Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 47%, Democrats 36% Monday, January 10, 2011 Email to a Friend AdvertisementRepublicans hold an 11-point lead over Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending January 9, 2011. That’s up one point from last week and six points from the week before. It's the widest gap between the two parties since right before Election Day.

New Rasmussen Reports telephone polling finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters nationwide say they would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate, while 36% would choose the Democrat instead.

Last week, Republicans posted a similar 45% to 35% lead over the Democrats. The week before the election, support for Republicans peaked at 51%, the highest level of support either party has enjoyed in the last two years but has tapered off since then.

Republicans lead by 20 points among men but by just three among women. The GOP holds a 21-point lead among voters not affiliated with either major political party.
Anyone wonder why the Democrat party wants to promote the breakup of the nuclear family? Single mothers are 3 times as likely to vote for a Dem compared to a married women in a stable home.
