Republicans Expand Lead on Generic Congressional Ballot

By    |   Friday, 07 October 2022 01:07 PM EDT

Almost half — 47% — of likely voters say they would cast their ballots for the Republican congressional candidate if the elections were today, compared to 43% who would vote for a Democrat, a new Rasmussen Reports poll revealed.

The numbers mark an increase for the GOP over last week's generic ballot poll, where Republicans were ahead 45% to 44%.

Poll results, released Friday:

  • 88% of Republicans say they would vote for their own party's congressional candidate.
  • 83% of Democrats would vote for the Democratic Party's nominee.
  • 41% of independents would vote for the Republican; 37% would vote for the Democrat.

The poll, conducted Oct. 2-6, surveyed 2,500 likely voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
