Democratic Lead In Midterms Slips

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds the Democratic advantage in the upcoming midterm elections has narrowed to 10 points among all adults, 4 points among registered voters and 5 points among those who say they’re both registered and certain to vote.

“In January, by contrast, Democrats held similar margins in all three groups – 13, 12 and 15 points, respectively.”

Key findings: “Factors at play include a slide in self-reported registration among Democrats, which is a sign of waning engagement; consolidation among Republicans of their base; and better results for the GOP among less-educated Americans generally, and non-college-educated white women in particular.”
