A new poll found that midterm voters are more likely to vote for the Republican candidate in some of the most competitive races.
In the most competitive congressional races, if midterm elections were held today, voters say they would vote for Republican candidates instead of Democrats at a 48 percent to 43 percent margin, according to CNN/SSRS polling data.
The poll also found that 32% believed Republican candidates in their states and districts had a more straightforward path for solving the country’s problems. In comparison, 28% said their Democratic candidates would do better in solving issues.
In tight race districts, 55% of registered Republicans responded that they are highly motivated to vote. In contrast, 45% of Democratic voters in close-race districts said they are highly motivated to vote.
According to the Daily Mail, it is expected that when one party controls the House, Senate, and White House, the opposing party tends to be more motivated and optimistic about their candidates. Republican enthusiasm for their candidates continues to build as economic fear, crime, and Biden’s poor handling of Russia are huge voter concerns.

Economy and inflation are top issues for voters living in competitive districts.

Democrats hold the House and Senate by slim margins. Currently, Georgia and Nevada have two Democratic senators. In Georgia, Senator Raphael Warnock is up for reelection, and Senator Cathy Cortez Masto is running to retain her seat in Nevada. Thirty-five Senate seats will be up for grabs at the midterm.
In Georgia, Herschel Walker runs against Warnock, while Blake Masters is challenging Cortez-Masto in Nevada. Both Republicans are Trump-backed candidates and gaining ground ahead of the midterms. A win for both would mean the GOP could retake the Senate.


In the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hope to hold onto the Democrats’ majority looks bleak. Predictions show Republicans taking the lead.
Republicans need 217 members in the House to take the majority; they currently have 212 House members. All 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives will be up for re-election.
