Democratic midterm lead now vapor

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

 Polls shows Republicans gaining ground in the closing weeks of the 2022 midterm campaign, narrowing Democrats’ long-standing lead to just 2 percentage points — their slimmest to date.

When asked which candidate they would vote for in their congressional district if the election were held today, 46% of registered voters now choose the Democrat; 44% pick the Republican.

In August, Democrats were ahead on the so-called generic ballot question by 6 points (45% to 39%). As recently as late September, they were ahead by 4 (45% to 41%).

Now that lead is gone, and the battle for control of Congress is effectively tied. The survey of 1,629 U.S. adults, which was conducted from Oct. 13 to 17, has a margin of error of 2.7% — larger, in other words, than the current gap between the two parties.
