The GOP isn’t necessarily in trouble, but the news isn’t as promising as it once looked:
Republicans lead Democrats on the generic congressional ballot by five points.
Last week, the lead was ten.
While a five-point lead is nothing to sneeze it, Republicans should at least be wondering why they just lost half of their huge lead in just one weak.
Republicans are hoping to regain control of Congress in 2022, which are now just 102 days away.
They’ve been in the minority for four years, but 46% of likely U.S. voters just said they would prefer to elect a Republican in the upcoming elections, while only 41% would lean Democrat.
When Democrats took back the House in 2018 for the first time in eight years, they held a seven-point lead in July.
Considering the Republicans are close to that pace, they may be in good shape.
But it is worth asking why the GOP is losing momentum.
Should we be concerned?
