Poll: Republicans have a 2-point lead on the generic congressional ballot

Published

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

The McLaughlin & Associates survey found that 47% of the respondents said they would vote for the Republican candidate if the election were held today, compared with 45% who said they would vote for the Democratic candidate. Meanwhile, 8% said they are not sure which party they would support.

The sampling included 1,000 likely voters and was carried out May 7-11. It did not list a margin of error.

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

The outcome could be influenced by voter sentiment toward President Donald Trump, who is up for re-election next year.

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

Republicans control the Senate 53-47.

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