A new Ramussen Reports national phone and online survey shows 48 percent of likely U.S. voters would vote for the Republican candidate while 39 percent would vote for the Democrat.
While four percent would vote for another candidate, the remaining nine percent are unsure. In November, the GOP held a 13-point advantage.
In January of 2018, Democrats held an eight-point edge. That difference vanished by Election Day as it was a statistical dead heat in November of 2018.
Much of the GOP’s advantage can be attributed to a 17-point edge among voters unaffiliated with either major party. It also helps that 87 percent of Republicans would vote for the GOP candidate while 80 percent of Democrats said they’ll vote for the Democrat candidate.
