Looks like Democrats’ “blue tsunami” could be a wash, according to a new Rasmussen poll. While Democrats continue to lead Republicans on the generic congressional ballot, their lead has tightened for the second week in a row.
According to the latest results, 45 percent of likely U.S. voters would choose the Democratic candidate if the elections for Congress were held today, but 41 percent would select the Republican candidate.
Three points is not a tsunami. Sure, it’s a lead as would be expected in a midterm election when a Republican is in office. But with a margin of error of two percent, a three percent lead seems hardly noteworthy.
The election is months away and much could change between now and then, but instead of surfboard, Democrats might need to grab a box of Kleenex for blowing their opportunity. Boo. Hoo.
The survey of 2,500 likely voters was conducted on July 29 through August 2, 2018 across the United States.
