Prefer Republican candidate to Democrat by an average of 45% to 35%
by Jeffrey M. Jones

PRINCETON, NJ -- By an average 10 percentage-point margin since March, 45% to 35%, independent registered voters have consistently preferred the Republican to the Democrat when asked which congressional candidate they would vote for in their district. Independents' preference for Republicans has been generally consistent over this time, with the gap in favor of Republicans increasing slightly since March, from 8 to 12 points.


Currently about one in five independent registered voters are undecided or prefer a candidate from outside the two major parties, suggesting the potential for movement in these numbers between now and Election Day.

These data are based on monthly averages of Gallup Daily tracking, including interviews with more than 6,000 registered voters each month.
