It’s been bad news for Republicans for months, but this new poll could completely change how we think of the 2018 election!
It’s only one poll, but it confirms a trend we’ve been seeing a while. The tax bill has done a lot to make the right comfortable with re-electing Republicans to the Congress, after months of dismal failures.
Politico is a hard left outfit, but their poll has Republicans taking the lead 39-38 in the generic ballot. Before the tax bill, Democrats had a 13 point lead in the poll average, and the poll average remains D+6.6 going into today.
An R+1 result is surely an outlier, but that an outlier with a Republican lead is even possible, suggests Republicans have gained ground over the last 2 months.
