According to a CBS News poll, Republicans are leading Democrats by two points in the generic congressional ballot. The poll was released Sunday.
According to the poll, 47 percent of 2,126 registered voters said that they would vote for the generic Republican candidate. Only 45 percent said that they would vote generic Democrat.
Four percent of respondents said they would vote in favor of the independent candidate and four percent said that they weren’t sure who they should vote for.
Republicans continue to lead the poll because Democrats and establishment media believe that they have a chance of keeping the majority in Congress.
Also, the poll found that 11 per cent of Democrat respondents would vote for the Republican candidate in this year’s election while ten per cent of Republican respondents said that they would vote for a Democrat candidate. These two results are effectively cancelling each other.
The economy (81%) and inflation (76%) are the two most important issues to voters.
Furthermore, President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are ten points below — 45 percent approve and 55 percent disapprove — while over half of voters (64%) stated that they would heavily base November’s vote on their feelings about the president.
The poll was conducted between August 24 and 26, with 2,126 registered voters in the United States. There was a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percent.
The House Republicans are seeking a net gain at least five seats. This would allow them to regain the majority and remove Pelosi as speaker.
The Democrats seized the House from Republicans in 2018. After trying to reclaim the House, the Republicans took it from the Democrats in 2018. In 2020, they gave the upper hand to the Republicans with the slimmest majorities in modern history.
Both the Senate and the House are at stake. Republicans winning one of these could mean that Democrats and Biden have greater difficulty passing their agenda items in the Senate.
Analysts from numerous news outlets and organizations predict that Republicans will win the majority of the House again with between 2 and 35 seats.
