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

Democrats enjoyed a seven-point lead on the Generic Ballot – 42% to 35% – when Barack Obama took office as president in late January 2009, but their support has generally remained in the mid- to upper 30s since June of that year. Republicans began to close the gap following the stimulus debate in February 2009.
Republicans lead by 14 points among men but trail by four among women. Democrats lead among voters under 40, while Republicans have the edge among older voters. Republicans hold a 36% to 24% lead among voters not affiliated with either of the major parties, but 40% of that group remains either undecided or leans towards a third-party candidate.
