WASHINGTON – Democrats have a six-point lead over Republicans on the generic congressional ballot, according to a poll released Thursday.
The HarrisX poll found that 42% of the respondents said they would vote for the Democratic candidate if the election were held today and 36% said they would vote for the Republican candidate. Meanwhile, 13% said they are not sure which party they would support and 3% said they do not intend to vote.
The survey included 3,003 registered voters and was carried out Sunday through Wednesday. It did not list a margin of error.
Less than a year-and-a-half remains before the 2020 congressional elections.
At present Democrats control the House of Representatives, 235-198.
Republicans control the Senate, 53-47.
The survey focused on voter attitudes toward candidates for the House.
