Dem Lead Shrinks

Democrats’ lead over Republicans on a generic House ballot was cut in half over the past month, according to a new American Barometer survey.

The poll, conducted by Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company, found that 41 percent of respondents said they would vote for the Democratic candidate in their district, while 36 percent said they would go with the GOP candidate.

That compares with an American Barometer poll from August that showed Democrats had an 11-point lead: 45 percent said they would cast their vote for the Democratic candidate, while 34 percent favored the Republican candidate.

This month’s American Barometer poll was conducted Sept. 8–9 among 1,000 registered voters. The sampling margin of error is 3.1 percentage points.
