Skip to comments.CNN Poll: Democratic advantage grows in race for Congress
Posted on 08/15/2018 11:40:08 AM PDT by Rennes Templar
(CNN) Democrats now lead Republicans by 52% to 41% in a nationwide generic Congressional ballot according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS and released Tuesday. The blue lead has increased slightly from eight percentage points in June of this year to an 11 percentage point difference in the most recent poll.
Despite Democrats' advantage on that measure, a plurality (48%) in the same poll believe Republicans will maintain control of Congress after the election, compared with 40% who believe Democrats will gain control. Among those who favor the Democratic candidate in their district, 64% say they think Democrats will ultimately win control of Congress, while among those backing Republican candidates, 83% think the GOP will maintain control.
Compared to previous elections, 68% of registered voters say they're more enthusiastic to vote in this election than in the past. Registered Democrats and Republicans report being more excited to vote at similar levels, with 70% and 68% saying so, respectively. However, Democrats have taken a much higher leap in enthusiasm vs. 2016 than Republicans. When CNN last asked the question, in September 2016, only 38% of Democrats said they were "more enthusiastic," while 48% of Republicans said the same. Registered Democrats jumped 32-points since 2016 and Republicans moved 20-points.

CNN poll of CNN viewers.
CNN continues to out-do itself...trying to re-write history before it happens. The leftist playbook.
Setting up for the looting party on Nov. 7.
Metro police will stand down.
Gotta be in their DNA. Liying for fun and profit.
“Seems I recall some CNN polls said the same thing before the POTUS election. “
I think they’re still trying to get the $hit out of their “Secret Sauce!” Let the RATs believe these polls and stay home “knowing” it’s in the bag.
LOL CNN polled themselves..CNN the same “network” that said its A OK for ANTIFA terrorists to KILL US because we Trump supporters are a bunch of Nazi’s
CNN We tell you how to think.
Like I am going to believe any poll by CNN without a lot more other polls saying the same thing.
Polled Maxine Waters and her staff and it still came up this close.
Doesn’t show identity or party affiliation, but the last question is about Q, and there are more Democrats that have heard about Q than Republican respondents (37/33%). This shows VERY heavy Democrat sampling. Also, enthusiasm is through the roof at almost 70%, so I’m guessing they called the NY/DC area called it a day. Sh*t poll.
The night before the 2016 election it was obvious to any and all on the news that Hillary was going to win but the question was: how big a Hillary mandate?
No reason for anyone to waste their valuable time voting for Trump.
CNN told us so.
It is possible but I hope that radical socialists, Anti-Semitic racists and the other crazy things coming out of that party will not appeal to Americans.
CNN's Wishful thinking and made up polls versus reality.
Just like Hitlery was going to win in a landslide.
And Hillary had a 95% probability of winning.
Yeah. Its gonna be a sweep. No point into even going to the polls, libs. Theres good tv on that night.
This is a click bait faux poll. 921 registered voters, not credible. Credible polls at the stage use likely voters and use more than 1000 likely voters. This is nonsense.
Did the fake Trump voter vote in this poll?
generic national ballots are meaningless in regional races. Americans hate congress, but they usually like their local representative... unless there’s an issue with THAT person.
