Rasmussen Poll: Dems Have 3-Point Lead Generic Congressional Ballot

A new Rasmussen poll for the week ending September 22 shows Democrats have their biggest lead on the Generic Congressional Ballot since mid-April. If mid-term elections were held today, 40% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Democrat in their district’s congressional race, while 37% would choose the Republican instead.

The two parties were tied for the previous two weeks. This is the first time since early August that either party has hit the 40% mark and is also the largest gap between the two parties since the GOP posted a three-point lead at that time. For most of the summer, both sides have earned less than 40% support.
