With less than two months to go before midterm elections in November, the nation’s voters, according to three new polls released on Wednesday, are leaning more and more toward Democratic candidates.
In a Quinnipiac poll, Democrats opened a 14-point lead on a generic House ballot, 52 percent to 38 percent, with independents saying they prefer Democrats 50 percent to 35 percent.
A new NPR-Marist poll indicates a 12-point lead for Democrats running for a House seat, 50-38. The poll said Democrats are ahead in a general ballot matchup: 57-36 among college educated whites, 57-29 among women, and 43-36 among independents. However, white voters with no college degree tended to back Republicans.
A Politico–Morning Consult poll found 45 percent of voters saying they would pick a liberal candidate, compared to 35 percent saying they would pick a conservative candidate in a generic congressional race. Another 19 percent indicated they are undecided.
The NPR–Marist poll measured President Donald Trump’s support at 39 percent. Since political polling started, only one president fell below 40 percent prior to his first midterm, and that was former President Harry Truman in 1946, when his party lost 12 seats in the Senate and 45 in the House.
