Republicans Are Leading In Competitive Congressional Districts: Poll



House Republicans

A new CNN poll released on Thursday found that Republicans have an edge in competitive congressional districts with less than four weeks left until Election Day.

According to the survey among likely voters in competitive districts, 48 percent said they would support the Republican candidate, while 43 percent said they would support the Democrat.

Republicans also led Democrats among those who say they are extremely motivated to vote this year, with 52 percent of registered Republicans and 46 percent of registered Democrats saying they are particularly motivated.

However, Democrats led Republicans among all likely voters in the poll regardless of the district — 50 percent to 47 percent, the poll found — which could play a role in a highly competitive election.

In a tightly split Congress, Republicans need only pick up five House seats to take control of the lower chamber.

The poll was conducted from Sept. 3 to Oct. 5 with 1,982 respondents and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
