Reuters Poll: The Blue Wave May Not Come

In the generic Republican vs Democratic ballot, the much-touted Dem lead has evaporated, according to the most recent Reuters poll.

This is due, I suspect, to Mueller fatigue, and a somewhat successful (if not complete disingenuous and lie-based) media onslaught by Trump and Company.

The Reuters poll reflects a larger trend of Republicans closing the gap in the generic ballot. A CNN poll released earlier this month showed the Democrats with just a 3-point lead over the GOP, which was within the poll’s margin of error.

Fortunately, actual candidates are running, rather than generic ones.
