A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll has found a 9 point lead for Republicans on a Generic Congressional Ballot among likely voters. This is in spite of CNN's proclivity for over sampling Democrats.
With a little over a month until Election Day, Congressional Republicans have the clear advantage with voters nationwide, a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll says.
In a generic ballot matchup, the Republican leads the Democrat by 9 points among likely voters - 53 percent to 44 percent.
That spread is slightly smaller than the 55-42 percent advantage Democrats had at the same point in 2006, ahead of their major electoral victories that handed them control of both the House and Senate.
