With Election Day just a few days away, Republicans currently hold a five-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The survey found that, if the elections for Congress were held today, 48% of likely U.S. voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 43% would vote for the Democrat.
Just three percent (3%) would vote for some other candidate, but another six percent (6%) are not sure.
The GOP lead has decreased two points from last week, when they led 49% to 42%.
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 2018, before voters handed Democrats their first House majority in eight years, the margin on the generic congressional ballot was a statistical dead heat – Republicans 46%, Democrats 45% – in the final poll before Democrats won a slim House majority, while Republicans gained Senate seats to maintain control of that chamber.
