Generic Congressional Ballot Gap Closing? UPDATE: Or not...

Posted: Oct 04, 2010 7:09 PM

Republican candidates now hold a three-point lead over Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending Sunday, October 3, 2010. This is the smallest gap between parties in roughly a year.

Forty-five percent (45%) of respondents say they would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate, while 42% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent. This is the first time during 2010 that the GOP edge has fallen below five points.

A friendly reminder to take absolutely nothing for granted.

UPDATE: The unpredictable Gallup generic ballot tracker tells a very different story...Republicans lead by 13 among likely voters.
