With just days left before the 2022 midterm elections, Rasmussen Reports released its final generic congressional ballot poll of the cycle.

The latest national phone and online survey shows if elections were held today, 48 percent of likely voters would vote for the Republican candidate while 43 percent would vote for the Democrat.

Three percent of likely voters said they would support some other candidate while another six percent are not sure.

The Republican lead dropped two points from last week. Republicans have enjoyed a lead on the generic congressional ballot all year. Their largest lead came by 10 points.

Rasmussen Reports noted that in 2018 the generic congressional ballot margin was 46-45 in favor of Republicans. Democrats won their first House majority in eight years in 2018.

Republicans hold a 13-point lead among independent voters.
