GOP Leads Likely Voters

Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg poll is out with some scary news for Democrats. The poll finds likely voters favor a Republican-led Congress over a Democratic one, 49% to 44%.

“The survey is yet more evidence that Democratic voters are tuning out the midterms. Democrats carried a 10-point lead among low-interest voters, who the party is trying to reach and motivate with vigorous turnout operations across the country. Republicans carried a 10-point lead in the new survey among voters who said they were highly interested in the election.”

“Registered voters, a larger group than likely voters, also said they’d prefer the election to produce a Republican-led Congress, a first since the poll began asking five weeks ago. The GOP held a lead of 45% to 43% on the question among registered voters.”
