Gallup: GOP Hits All-Time High in Generic Vote

Tuesday, 01 Jun 2010 09:39 PM

Republicans are now polling with their largest lead ever over Democrats in the history of the Gallup poll, the polling agency reported Tuesday.

Gallup's generic polling shows the number of voters saying that they would vote for Republicans rising three points from last week, while the number saying they will vote for Democrats dropped four points.

The 49 percent to 43 percent lead for the GOP is the party's best lead ever. Democratic enthusiasm for voting this fall fell a point, while enthusiasm among Republicans stayed about fifteen points higher.

This indicates an even wider lead for Republicans once Gallup imposes a likely voter screen this fall, the Real Clear Politics website pointed out.

Real Clear pointed out several reasons for the surge:
  • the public's perception of Obama's response to the oil spill
  • the shaky stock market performance last week
  • continued concern about the economy and spending.
