Gallop: Republicans Hold on to 17-point lead on Generic Ballot

The GOP holds an astounding 17-point lead over Democrats on a Generic Congressional Ballot among Likely Voters. The Tsunami builds.

If the elections were held today and roughly 40% of voters turned out -- a rate typical in recent years -- Gallup's Oct. 7-17 polling suggests Republicans would win 56% of the vote -- 8 points greater than their support from registered voters, and 17 points ahead of Democrats, at 39%. If turnout is significantly higher, Republicans would receive 53% of the vote (a 5-point improvement over their registered-voter figure), and the Democrats, 42%.
