From Rasmussen Reports,

Support for the Democratic Congressional candidates fell to a new low over the past week, allowing the GOP to move slightly head for the first time in recent years in the Generic Congressional Ballot.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 41% said they would vote for their district’s Republican candidate while 39% would choose the Democrat.

Investors now favor Republicans by a 46% to 36% margin, while non-investors would vote Democratic by a 45% to 33% margin.

Democrats began the year holding a six or seven point lead over the GOP for the first several weeks of 2009. Over the past month, the gap has been smaller, with Democrats holding a two-to-four point lead. It remains to be seen whether the current results reflect lasting change or statistical noise.


Could this be the beginning of the Republican come-back? — Perhaps. Now, I’ll be surprised if the liberal media reports on this.

Well the Republicans shouldn’t read too much into the result of a eneric poll. But the fact that they actually are in front for the first time in years is probably a great motivational boost.
