Poll: Dems lead by 10 on generic House ballot

Source: The Hill

Democrats hold a 10-point lead on the generic House ballot, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll published Monday.

Fifty percent of respondents said they would vote for the Democratic candidate in their congressional district, while 40 percent said they would cast a ballot for the Republican candidate.

Among registered voters, 47 percent said they would vote for the Democratic candidate, while 43 percent chose the Republican. As for voters who are both registered and will definitely cast ballots, 49 percent said they would pick the Democratic candidate, while 44 percent said the Republican.

By contrast, Democrats currently hold a 6.2-point lead over Republicans in the RealClearPolitics generic House ballot poll average.

The media narrative that the Democratic lead in the midterms is shrinking just took a hit with this poll.

4. Please explain this for me :

"Among registered voters, 47 percent said they would vote for the Democratic candidate, while 43 percent chose the Republican. As for voters who are both registered and will definitely cast ballots, 49 percent said they would pick the Democratic candidate, while 44 percent said the Republican."

isn't ''they would vote for" and "will definitely cast ballots" the same thing?

5. They are not the same thing

You can kind of think of it this way: The difference between "they would vote for" and "will definitely cast ballots" is like the enthusiasm gap. Highly motivated citizens will definitely vote. Less motivated may or may not cast a ballot, but if they did this is the way they would vote.
