6. Dems Hold 18 Point Advantage in Generic Congressional Ballot: Rasmussen

Congressional Ballot


Democrats have opened an eighteen point lead in the Generic Congressional ballot. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that, if the Congressional Election were held today, 50% of American voters say they would vote for the Democrat in their district. Just 32% would opt for the Republican. A month ago, the Democrats lead was just ten percentage points, 47% to 37%.

Republicans now trail by 15 percentage points among men. Last month, they were nearly even with Democrats among male voters. Democrats now have a twelve-point advantage among white voters, another segment of the population that was a toss-up in early August.

Prior to reaching the 50% level in September, support for Democrats had stayed in the 45% to 47% range for six consecutive monthly surveys.

Before dropping to 32% this month, support for Republicans had ranged from 34% to 38% over that same six month period.
