Democrats Surpass Republicans on Generic Congressional Ballot
This has to be considered a sign of how damaging the Republican Presidential Primary and the difficult fights over the debt ceiling, the budget, and other matters have plagued the GOP over the past year. From Rasmussen:
For the first time in roughly two-and-a-half years, Democrats lead Republicans on the Generic Congressional Ballot, this time for the week ending Sunday, Jan. 29.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 41% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Democrat in their district’s congressional race if the election were held today, while 40% would choose the Republican instead.
For sake of comparison, a year ago this month, Republicans had an 11 point margin in their favor in the same poll.
