Generic Congressional Ballot: Democrats 40%, Republicans 39%
Monday, June 24, 2013
Democrats have pulled ahead by one point again on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending June 23, 2013.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Democrat in their district’s congressional race if the election were held today, while 39% would choose the Republican instead. Last week, the two parties were tied at 39% apiece. It was the first time since June 2009 that both were below 40%.
For the past 10 weeks, the two parties have been separated by two points or less.
