Last month showed a tie on the generic ballot for congressional races in North Carolina. The June Civitas Poll shows Democrats jumping out to a five-point lead in congressional races. Polls like these will probably remain fairly fluid up until election day, as there has been some back and forth for awhile.
Some of this could be related to reporting that Congressional approval rating currently stands at 14 percent. That’s pretty low, even for Congress. However, reelection rates for individual members still hover in the 92 percent range. Lots of people hold negative views toward Congress yet approve of the individual member that represents them in Washington.
This poll response will definitely be one of the ones to watch up until the November midterm election.
