Democrats lead Republicans by 3 points on a generic congressional matchup, according to a new poll of registered voters. The Politico-Morning Consult survey released Wednesday found that 42 percent of respondents said they would vote for a Democratic candidate for Congress, whereas 39 percent said they would vote Republican.
Meanwhile, only 39 percent of respondents said they would probably or definitely vote for President Trump, while 53 percent said they would probably or definitely vote for someone else. Researchers surveyed 1,998 registered voters between April 12 and April 14. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
The 2018 generic ballots swung several points over the months but the ones near the end proved rather accurate.
