The 2022 Midterm Elections are one week away, and Republicans have a seven-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Report.
The survey found that if the elections for Congress were held today, 49% of likely U.S. voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 42% would vote for the Democrat.
Just four percent (4%) would vote for some other candidate, but another five percent (5%) are not sure.
The GOP lead has increased three points from last week, when they led 47% to 43%.
Republicans have led the Generic Congressional Ballot all year, although their lead has narrowed since mid-July, when they led by as much as 10 points.
In October 2018, before voters handed Democrats their first House majority in eight years, Democrats held a three-point advantage (47% to 44%) in the generic ballot question.
