Rasmussen Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 44%, 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 15 points among male voters and run even with Democrats among female voters. GOP support is higher among voters over 40.

Voters not affiliated with either of the major parties prefer the Republican by 40% to 28% margin, but another 32% of that group remain undecided or lean towards a third-party candidate.
