    Democrats take lead over GOP in "generic" US House polling

    Democrats Inch Ahead of Republicans on Generic Congressional Ballot

    JACOB BLISS 11 Aug 2022

    Democrats inched ahead of Republicans on FiveThirtyEight’s generic congressional ballot average on August 10 — less than four months from the midterm election night.

    FiveThirtyEight updated their generic congressional ballot average on Wednesday to show Democrats have a slight advantage over Republicans.

    The average showed generic Democrats with an average of 44.2 percent and generic Republicans with an average of 44 percent.

    The average from FiveThirtyEight looks at polls from Morning Consult, Rasmussen Reports, Ipsos, Data for Progress, and YouGov.

    Republicans, who are now slightly behind the Democrats, are trying to unseat Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from her Speakership and take back the majority in the House of Representatives.

    In 2018, the Democrats took the House from the Republicans.

    In 2020, after striving to win back the House, the Republicans left the Democrats with the slimmest majority in modern history and gave themselves the upper hand in the midterms.

    For Republicans, winning the majority will require a net gain of only five seats in November, and much is on the line in both the House and the Senate.

    For Democrats, losing either could mean the Democrat Party and President Joe Biden will have a more challenging time passing their agenda items before the next presidential election.

    The revelation of Democrats leading FiveThirtyEight’s generic congressional ballot average is a warning sign for Republicans, as they are still projected to win back a majority between 12 and 35 seats in the House. For the majority of the year, Republicans have led the generic ballot, especially on the Rasmussen Reports polling where they have led all year.

    However, on the Rasmussen Reports polls, Republicans have lost their overall edge while some polls — like Morning Consult and YouGov — the Democrats are now leading.

    Not surprising. The polls are probably gonna keep going in that direction right up until the midterms... because thats where they want it to go.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    This is beyond push polling. This is drag kicking and screaming polling.

    Just preparation. It’s important for polls to match the (manipulated) election results.

    Strange because anybody I talk to about politics seems to be really pissed off at Democrats.

    Don't worry about 3 months before election night.

    It's the 3 hours after election night that dems tend to get the most support.

    The more I ponder on these recent events, the more I tend to think it likely that the Democrats have no intention of losing 2022 or 2024, by hook or by crook, as they say. This feels like a coup. They're obviously manufacturing this narrative - it's plain to see, and everyone in the know knows it. So they're not going to allow the Republicans to gain power and turn their tactics right back on them, especially with all the criminal activity that would be easily investigated and prosecuted. Of course, DOJ/FBI are obviously working for them, and changing out the AG or the Director of the FBI won't change any of that.

    Strange and likely bad days ahead, friends. I hope you're all prepared.

    And even if they get caught, and all hell breaks loose, it’s still part of their plan. Like Ukraine, they are willing to fight until the last American.
