ABC News and Washington Post Show GOP By Double Digits on Dems

Sunday, November 14th, 2021

The headline highlights Joe Biden’s sinking job approval ratings but the most stark number from this morning’s ABC News-Washington Post poll shows Republicans now holding a double-digit lead when it comes to the generic congressional ballot, an all-time high.

US HOUSE – GENRIC BALLOT (ABC-WaPo)
Republican 51%
Democratic 41%

This poll was done November 7-10 among registered voters. It is also worth pointing out that in the final Washington Post poll for the recently completed Virginia gubernatorial race, they claimed Democrat Terry McAuliffe was ahead only to see him lose by 2%, a three-percentage point swing towards the GOP candidate.

Two More VA Polls – One Has Youngkin Up By 1% and One has McAuliffe Up By 3%

Monday, November 1st, 2021

Two polls that wrapped up today show a split result with Research Co giving Glenn Youngkin a single-percentage-point lead while Targoz Market Research shows Terry McAuliffe with a 3% edge.

Glenn Youngkin (R) 49%
Terry McAuliffe (D) 48%

GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA (Targoz MR)
Terry McAuliffe (D) 50%
Glenn Youngkin (R) 47%

The positive side for Youngkin is when viewing these two polls, the Research Co poll started yesterday while the Targoz MR poll goes back to last Tuesday as a starting date. The Research CO poll was done October 31 – November 1 among 450 likely voters while the Targoz MR poll was done October 26-November 1 among 747 likely voters. If you believe the late movement is towards Youngkin, then the Research Co is likely more accurate.
