Independents Give Democrats the Lead on Generic Ballot

A new Public Policy Polling survey finds Democrats lead the generic congressional ballot 46% to 41%, including a 42% to 33% lead with independents.

Key findings: "Independents have shifted 21 points on the generic ballot from July when Republicans had a 39% to 27% advantage with them. The lean toward Democrats for next year reflects who they blame for the shutdown. By a 51% to 37% margin they say Republicans are more at fault than Democrats, and by a 57% to 41% margin they think Congress is more to blame than the President."
