According to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, what was a +12 point lead for Democrats in the congressional generic ballot is down to just a four point lead.
When asked three months ago if they would vote for a Republican or Democrat if the election for the U.S. House of Representatives were held today, by a margin of 51 percent to 39 percent, voters chose Democrats.
Those polled breaks down to 32 percent Democrat, 25 percent Republican, 35 percent Independent.
The Real Clear Politics (RCP) poll of polls shows Democrats with a six-point lead on the congressional ballot.
Oddly enough, as counterintuitive as it may seem, along with Trump’s steadily improving job approval number (RCP average 43 percent), the Republican Party’s 2018 prospects appear to be improving even as Democrats, special counsel Robert Mueller, and their allies in the corporate media attempt to personally and professionally destroy Trump in a series of coordinated attacks unlike any we have ever seen.
