More bad polling data for Democrats. As per the most recent Rasmussen poll, Republicans have their greatest advantage in the Generic Congressional ballot since early 2011. Rasmussen has the GOP ahead of Democrats 46% to 36%. Just one week ago Republicans were ahead by 5%.
Republicans, as they have for nearly three years now, continue to lead Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot, this time for the week ending Sunday, April 15.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican in their district’s congressional race if the election were held today, while 36% would choose the Democrat instead. This is the largest gap between the two parties since the beginning of 2011. It also doubles the gap found a week ago when the Republican led by five points, 45% to 40%.
According to the final USA Today/Gallup measuring Americans’ voting intentions for Congress shows Republicans will win big Tuesday night in the 2010 midterm elections. Gallup is reporting that the GOP lead in voter intentions is so large that Republicans will take the House and at least 40 seats no matter what the voter turnout is. It is not just Gallup, the final final NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll before Tuesday’s elections show that 50% of likely voters prefer a GOP-controlled Congress.
Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Democrats … It’s coming
The final USA Today/Gallup measure of Americans’ voting intentions for Congress shows Republicans continuing to hold a substantial lead over Democrats among likely voters, a lead large enough to suggest that regardless of turnout, the Republicans will win more than the 40 seats needed to give them the majority in the U.S. House.
The results are from Gallup’s Oct. 28-31 survey of 1,539 likely voters. It finds 52% to 55% of likely voters preferring the Republican candidate and 40% to 42% for the Democratic candidate on the national generic ballot — depending on turnout assumptions. Gallup’s analysis of several indicators of voter turnout from the weekend poll suggests turnout will be slightly higher than in recent years, at 45%. This would give the Republicans a 55% to 40% lead on the generic ballot, with 5% undecided.
Gallup has the Congressional Generic ballot at Republicans 55% and Democrats 40%. They are predicting a GOP House win of 60+ seats. These polling numbers are as high as we have seen from Gallup and represent as NRO states, it could be uncharted territory.
Republicans Hold 10% Lead in CNN Congressional Ballot Which Can Explain … Rasmussen Has GOP Leading in 6 of 7 Toss Up Senate Races
Just days away and more disastrous polling data for Democrats …
With just two days to go before the long awaited 2010 midterm elections, according to the most recent CNN/Opinion Research poll, Republicans hold a commanding 10% lead in the Generic Congressional ballot over Democrats at 52% to 42%. Also in the poll, Obama has a 48% – 48% favorable/unfavorable rating. One might think that is promising compared to other Obama job approval polls; however, that is down from down from September’s polling when Obama was at 53% favorable and 45% unfavorable. The rending is headed in the wrong direction. Full pdf polling results can be seen HERE.
The GOP’s 10 point advantage in the “generic ballot” question in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation national survey released Sunday is slightly larger than the seven point advantage Republican candidates had on the eve of the 1994 midterms, when the party last took control of Congress from the Democrats.
“But unlike 1994, when polls indicated the public had a positive view of the Republican party, a majority of Americans now do not have a favorable view of the GOP,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
According to the poll, 52 percent of likely voters say they will vote for the generic Republican in their congressional district, with 42 percent saying they will vote for the generic Democrat, four percent saying neither and two percent undecided. The GOP’s 10-point lead is up from a seven-point advantage in a CNN poll conducted in early October.
At Real Clear Politics the GOP leads Democrats by 7.8% in the Generic Congressional Vote.
As stated at the Political Wire, the 2010 election is about saying “NO” to Democrats and “NO” to the Obama, Pelosi, Reid socialist agenda change. It is not a vote of confidence to the GOP. However, this is the reason why when Republicans are reelected to office, they will be on probation and best listen to WE THE PEOPLE.
It gets worse for Democrats and the US Senate might just be in play after all. As reported at the Gateway Pundit, according to Rasmussen, in 6 of the 7 toss up US Senate states … Republicans are ahead in the polls.
Rasmussen Reports has Republicans leading in 6 of 7 senate seats just two days before the midterm election. West Virginia, Nevada, Colorado, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Washington all show the Republican candidate leading their liberal opponent. In CaliforniaCarly Fiorina is still in striking range of unseating far left Senator Maam.
Think about how much of a drubbing Democrats are about to take in the 2010 midterm elections when it comes to the US Senate. There are 37 seats up for reelection in 2010. Democrats will win 8, Republicans will win 22 and 7 states are toss-ups … with the GOP ahead in 6 of the 7. Imagine if all Senate seats were up for reelection like in the House, the GOP would be looking at a 70+ seat majority.
CBS Poll: Majority of Likely Voters Say Their House Vote is a Referendum on Barack Obama … More Voting Against Obama Than For The One
With less than one week to go before the 2010 midterm election, a new CBS poll has the Republican party ahead in the Congressional Generic ballot over Democrats 46% to 40%. As seen in most of the polls over the last 6 months, independents are breaking sharply for the GOP. To make matters worse for Democrats, even though President Obama has been campaigning nonstop for Democrats, 56% of likely voters say Obama’s support for a candidate has no impact on their vote.
The advantage can be attributed in large part to independents, who are breaking hard for the GOP. Forty-seven percent of independent likely voters say they plan to vote Republican, while just 32 percent plan to vote Democrat. Seventeen percent haven’t made up their minds.
More than four in five Democrats and Republicans, meanwhile, say they are sticking with their party.
A majority of likely voters say their House vote is a referendum on President Obama, and more are voting against the president than for him. Thirty-two percent are casting a vote against Mr. Obama, while 22 percent are casting their vote to support him. Forty-two percent say their vote is about something else.
What might be the most interesting and alarming bit of polling data for Democrats in this CBS poll is the fact that the GOP has a slight lead with woman over Democrats. If that holds true across America on election day, Democrats will only wish there was a tsunami, rather than a follow up volcano, earthquake and tidal wave.
Men favor Republican candidates in their House vote this year by eight points, while the Republican edge is narrower among women.
Likely voters under age 45 are divided in their vote for Congress, while older voters are more likely to vote for Republicans.
Kaine Says Democrats will Hold House, then Why are They so Worried the GOP Will Take the House of Representatives in 2010 … New York State Set for Possible Democrat Purge
Wouldn’t it be real news if the Chairman of the DNCC admitted that the Democrats would lose?
The top democrat says they will not lose the House. Really? Then why are Democrats struggling in the “bluest” of “blue” states l;ike New York? Tim Kaine, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, went on ABC’s ‘This Week’ and said the following shocking comment … the Democrats would retain the House. WOW, THAT’S NEWS!!!
Kaine told “This Week” anchor Christiane Amanpour that Democrats would maintain control of the House in the midterm elections nine days from now.
I do, I do. I think it’s going to be close,” he said. “These races are very close, but from this point forward, it’s all about turnout and ground game. And we’re seeing good early voting trends and we’ve got work to do, but we think we can do it.”
So is all the polling wrong, Amanpourasked. Kaine didn’t address that question, but said the wind was at Democrats’ backs.
Does any one think that the head cheerleader of the Democrats is going to admit they are going to lose? I mean seriously folks, these people could not tell the truth about Obamacare, the stimulus or creating jobs. America is just so enamored with Democrat House Speaker as seen by her 29% approval rating. It is only Obama who thinks she is a great Speaker, not the American voters. . Kaine must be drinking the Kool-Aid from the latest Newsweek poll and not all the others that have the GOP ahead in the Congressional generic ballot.
Obvious, most Democrats do not share Kaine’s optimism. Most all Democrats are fearful of losing the House of Representatives in 2010 which can explain why they seem to be running as Republicans and as far away from the policies of Pelosi and Obama as they can.? Maybe it is because like in a Deep Blue state like New York, there are 11 possible seats that could change hands. 11!!! The Republicans just need a pick up of 39 to reclaim the majority. Currently, 27 of the 29 New York House seats are held by Democrats. All that could change in the 2010 midterms and what occurs in NY state could be the political indicator for what happens November 2nd election eve.
The 11 races up for grabs in New York. In a state where 93% of the House seats are held by Democrats, imagine what it means for Democrats to lose 4 or 5 seats in New York state?
1. Hall (D) v. Hayworth (R): In the 19th Congressional District (Westchester, Putnam, Orange), Republican Nan Hayworth, an ophthalmologist, is in a statistical tie with Rep. John Hall in the latest Monmouth University poll. Hall, a movement radical/singer (Orleans) who won in reaction to the Iraq war in 2006, has toed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s line ever since.
However, numerous polls have the Repubpican candidate ahead like the Siena poll that has Hayworth ahead by 3%, while The Hill’s recent battleground polling had the race tied. How has the landscape changed in 2010? The incumbent Democrat Hall won his House election races in 2008 and 2006 by a 59%-41% and51%-49% respectively. Hall now finds himself in a virtual tie withan anti-incumbent Democrat scent in the wind.
2. Bishop v. Altschuler:In the 1st CD (Eastern Suffolk), Rep. Tim Bishop is behind Republican Randy Altschuler42-40 in the latest McLaughlin poll. A defeat of Bishop, a long-term incumbent, would send shock waves through the state’s delegation.
However, a recent Siena poll shows the GOP candidate down big. However, GOP candidate received the politcal endorsement from NJ Governor Chris Christie and has a nice war chest for down the stretch ads. Some recent polls only show the incumbent Democrat up by 2%.
