Poll: Democrats have a 3-point lead on the generic congressional ballot

Published

WASHINGTON – Democrats have a three-point lead over Republicans on the generic congressional ballot, according to a poll released Tuesday.

The ScottRasmussen.com/HarrisX poll found that 41 percent of the respondents said they would vote for a Democratic candidate if the election were held today, compared with 38 percent who said they would vote for the Republican candidate.

Meanwhile, 5% said they would vote for a third-party candidate, 4% said they do not intend to vote, and 12% said they are not sure which party they would support.

The survey included 3,007 registered voters and was carried out Friday through Monday. It did not list a margin of error.

More than a year-and-half remains before the 2020 congressional elections.

The outcome could be influenced by voter sentiment toward President Donald Trump, who is up for re-election next year.

At present Democrats control the House of Representatives 235-197.

Republicans control the Senate 53-47.

The survey focused on voter attitudes toward candidates for the House.
