Fifty-nine percent of voters believe it is at least somewhat likely Republicans will lose control of Congress in the 2018 midterm elections, while 34 percent disagree, a new Rasmussen Reports poll reveals.

Here is how the rest of the poll breaks down:

  • 39 percent of Republicans say the GOP will lose control of Congress in 2018.
  • 76 percent of Democrats say the GOP will lose control.
  • 60 percent of independents say the GOP will lose control.
  • 36 percent of likely GOP voters surveyed say it would be good for the U.S. if Mitch McConnell resigned as majority leader.
  • 32 percent of Republicans say it would be good if Paul Ryan stepped down as House speaker.
  • 21 percent of likely Democratic voters say it would be good for the U.S. if Sen. Chuck Schumer resigned as Senate minority leader.
  • 21 percent say it would be good if Nancy Pelosi stepped down as House minority leader.

The survey, conducted Nov. 9 to 12, polled 1,000 likely voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
