Well, +1 D, but apparently that’s close enough for government work:
Are Republicans winning the public relations battle over spending in the $800-billion-plus economic stimulus package? Democrats and Republicans are nearly even in this week’s edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone surveys found that the Democrats’ lead is down to just one percentage point. Forty percent (40%) of voters said they would vote for their district’s Democratic candidate while 39% said they would choose the Republican (see crosstabs).
This marks the lowest level of support for the Democrats in tracking history and is the closest the two parties have been on the generic ballot.
Blue Dogs, take note. Or don’t: we can go with either scenario, really.
