Rasmussen Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 43%, Democrats 38%

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate, while 38% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent. Support for Democrats held steady from last week, while support for Republicans dipped slightly.

In the third week of April, Republicans posted a 10-point lead over Democrats, a high reached only one time since January and the party’s biggest lead in the history of Rasmussen Reports polling. Since then, however, the gap between the two parties has been closing.
While solid majorities of Democrats and Republicans support their own party, the plurality (42%) of voters not affiliated with either major party now prefer the Republican candidate, while 24% like the Democrat. These findings have remained fairly consistent for months now.
