Has anybody calculated the total number of Democratic vs Republican votes for house seats?

A bit curious here. with so many Gerrymandered districts - especially in red states, the number of GOP seats is probably somewhat larger than the number of votes they actually received.

Based on the Presidential popular vote and "Generic Ballot" polls, I would expect that the spiit was very close to 50/50 or maybe even slightly more Democratic votes overall.
