A new survey indicates Republicans nearly doubled their lead in just one week in the “generic ballot” that measures party support in the upcoming congressional elections.

Republicans held a 4-percentage-point lead over Democrats last week in the Rasmussen Reports survey of likely voters, and the latest shows the GOP 7 points ahead, reports Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard.

Likely voters prefer Republicans 48%-41%, with just 7% unsure.

Bedard pointed out the gap is significant, because “generic ballot” polls typically underestimate the size of Republican support.

Republican pollsters such as Ed Goeas have observed that Republicans typically score big victories after polls show Democrats with a lead of 3 points or less.

If the margin is within 5 points, he said, the GOP usually picks up some seats.

Rasmussen has done a breakdown of the generic ballot in the six key battleground states in the 2020 presidential election:

  • Arizona: Republican +3
  • Georgia: Republican +11
  • Michigan: Republican +4
  • Ohio: Republican +6
  • Pennsylvania: Republican +5
  • Wisconsin: Republican +4

Only Ohio went for President Trump in 2020, according to the official tally.

EDITOR’S NOTE: With what has been called the “Sovietization” of the Biden administration – including the shocking criminalization of dissent and massive weaponization of the FBI against political opponents – America is being increasingly compared to a third-world or communist dictatorship. Yet America still has one sacred institution that dictatorships from Zimbabwe to communist China don’t have: ELECTIONS. And in reality, there is no reason, despite the regime’s all-out efforts at election rigging, that the tens of millions of decent, right-thinking American voters cannot stop the Biden administration’s ever-expanding madness this November. For that reason, the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine insightfully covers the most electrifying and important races, illuminates the biggest issues, reveals how the latest federal takeover of elections actually violates the law, and much more. Looking forward to 2024, the issue also highlights why, to quote the chairman of a major think tank, Donald Trump “is the most towering political figure in living memory” and the person “most fit to lead” today’s America. It’s all in “STOPPING THE MADNESS: A MIDTERM ELECTION GUIDE FOR VOTERS WHO LOVE AMERICA.”
