Sinking support for Democrats in congress

From top pollster ScottĀ Rasmussen:

For just the second time in more than five years of daily or weekly tracking, Republicans now lead Democrats in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 41% would vote for their district's Republican candidate while 38% would choose the Democrat. Thirty-one percent (31%) of conservative Democrats said they would vote for their district's Republican candidate.

Overall, the GOP gained two points this week, while the Democrats lost a point in support.

Rasmussen cautions that the GOP's gains are not from anything Congressional Republicans have done, but rather are an indication of sinking support for Democrats.
