Democrat Lead On Generic Ballot Dropped To TWO POINTS In August

The blue wave we keep hearing about continues to evaporate. Democrats had a sizable lead six months ago and although it has gone up and down a few times, it’s sinking as we approach the fall.

Democrat Lead in August Generic Ballot Drops to Two Points

The latest round of polls that look at the generic ballot show a dramatic drop for Democrats as we head into the 2018 mid-terms elections.

In the Real Clear Politics poll of polls, Democrats enjoyed a seven point advantage last week. As of Thursday, that lead has slipped to just five points.

That five point lead, though, includes polls going back to mid-July, including an outlier Quinnipiac poll that gave Democrats a 12 point lead.

If you look only at the four polls taken this month, the Democrat lead drops to an average of just 2 (2.25) points.

Rasmussen shows Democrats at +4 (45-41 percent) — down from +6 last week.

IBD/TIPP has both parties all tied up at 45 percent — down from +8 Democrat lead at the end of June.

Economist/YouGov has Democrats +3 (44-41 percent) — down from +4 last week.

Reuters/Ipsos has Democrats +2 (41-39 percent) — down from +6 last week.

Republicans can take none of this for granted. Conservative voters have to mobilize and turn out the vote like never before.
