Democratic Generic Congressional Ballot poll lead slip, slipping away...

For the first time in months, Democrats and Republicans are tied on the Rasmussen Reports Generic Congressional Ballot.

The latest telephone and online survey finds that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters would choose the Democratic candidate if the elections for Congress were held today. Another 44% would now opt for the Republican. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

A week ago, Democrats held a 48% to 41% lead on the generic ballot.

This is the first time the parties have been tied since May. The Democrats regained their lead in early June and have maintained it since then. In early July, Democrats led by eight, their largest lead since January.

Rasmussen Reports is updating the Generic Congressional Ballot findings weekly on Wednesdays at 8:30 a.m. Eastern until the midterm elections in November.

Looks like having over 90% favorable media bias toward Democrats STILL isn't enough...

1. Ultimately

 

Their soviet style of politics is going to destroy them.
In the chance they actially do do well in the midterms, it will most likely be the end of their nasty little party as they will remind America why they were despised to begin with.

7. ".....Looks like having over 90% favorable media bias toward Democrats STILL isn't enough..."

That's probably why all the recent news has evoked nothing but a big bored "ho-hum" from the general public.

I dunno if any of this stuff is "big" or not, important or not, but it appears the public doesn't give a damn.

It's because we've been oversaturated with all this Trump paranoia and Trump hate for two years now, the hysterics crying "wolf!" too many times, that any more, it doesn't make any difference if something's true or false, if something's important or not.....whatever the case, nobody believes it.

Too bad for the primitives, and the lorgnette-and-pearls crowd here. They overplayed it.
