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.

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.
