If you have been paying attention to current events, the Generic Poll has been waved far and wide to predict the coming Blue Wave. Something just happened to it. Suddenly, the lead that the Democratic Party had over the Republican Party just got cut in half. The Quinnipiac University poll seems to be pointing to the negative impact that the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings are having on the desirability of the Democratic voters. Have they turned off their own base or are they motivating the opposition? It is probably a combination of both of those factors, but it definitely seems to be a “Kavanaugh Effect.” Here are the numbers as they are at this time.
As Written and Reported By Carlos Garcia for The Blaze:
Democrats got a gut check with a new poll from Quinnipiac showing that their lead in the generic ballot had been sliced by half for the midterm elections.
The Quinnipiac University poll found that Democrats had a generic ballot lead of 7 points, with 49 percent of Americans saying they’d vote for a Democrat while 42 percent said they’d vote for a Republican.
This lead represents half of the advantage the Democrats had in the same poll from September, when 52 percent of Americans said they’d vote for Democrats, while only 38 percent said they supported Republicans.
“The numbers suggest the big blue wave may have lost some of its momentum as House races tighten,” said assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll Tim Malloy.
The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,111 likely voters across the country at the end of September. The poll has a plus or minus 3.7 percentage point margin of error.
