(POLL) Republicans extend lead to 5 points in Generic Congressional Ballot

The 2022 midterm elections are now less than 80 days away, and Republicans have taken a five-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.

This is according to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey.

Findings show that, if the elections for Congress were held today, 46% of likely U.S. voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 41% would vote for the Democrat.

Just four percent (4%) would vote for some other candidate, but another eight percent (8%) are not sure.

The GOP lead is two points higher than last week, when they led 46%-43%.

Republicans have led the Generic Congressional Ballot all year, although their lead has narrowed significantly over the past three weeks.

Rasmussen Reports is updating the Generic Congressional Ballot findings weekly on Fridays at 10:30 a.m. Eastern until the Midterm elections in November.
