During a full week of polling from December 2-7, 2018, found that 43% of Registered Voters would vote for the Democrat from their district while 37% would vote for the Republican. That six point advantage for the Democrats is unchanged from a week ago. Both parties lost a single-point of support.

The latest survey also found that 5% would vote for some other party, 4% would not vote, and 10% are not sure. (see crosstab results).

This Generic Ballot data is based upon a survey of 5,018 Registered Voters conducted December 2-7, 2018 by and HarrisX, a leading research firm specializing in online surveys (see Methodology).

Our last release of Generic Ballot polling prior to the 2018 election showed the Democrats with an 8-point advantage among the most likely voters. That result is quite consistent with the actual Democratic popular vote margin earned on Election Day. With the election more than two years away, we currently report data based upon Registered Voters. Prior to the midterm election, Democrats had a seven-point advantage among Registered Voters.
