Poll: Democrats have an 8-point lead on the generic congressional ballot

Published

WASHINGTON – Democrats have an eight-point lead over Republicans on the generic congressional ballot, according to a poll released Friday.

The HarrisX poll found that 43% of the respondents said they would vote for the Democratic candidate if the election were held today and 35% said they would vote for the Republican candidate. Meanwhile, 13% said they are not sure which party they would support and 4% said they do not intend to vote.

The survey included 3,003 registered voters and was carried out Monday through Thursday. It did not list a margin of error.

A HarrisX poll released last week showed Democrats with a five-point advantage over Republicans on the generic congressional ballot.

That survey included 3,004 registered voters and was carried out May 27-30.

Less than a year-and-a-half remains before the 2020 congressional elections.

At present Democrats control the House of Representatives, 235-197.

Republicans control the Senate, 53-47.

The surveys focused on voter attitudes toward candidates for the House.
