Democrats' midterm numbers are not improving, in fact they might be getting worse, as Republicans nearly pull a majority of likely voters in a general midterm ballot, leading Democrats by almost 9 points in the latest Trafalgar Group poll released Thursday.

Not only does a near majority side with Republicans (48.1%), a near majority of likely voters "strongly disapprove" of the job President Joe Biden has done (49.9%).

When likely midterm voters were asked, "Who do you plan to vote for in the upcoming congressional election?" the results were:

  • Republican candidate - 48.1%.
  • Democrat candidate - 39.4%.
  • Undecided -12.5%.

Those numbers are similar to Biden's job approval in the poll:

  • Strongly disapprove - 49.9%.
  • Strongly approve - 20.2%.
  • Approve - 19.4%.
  • Disapprove - 5.4%.
  • No opinion - 5.1%.

The combined majority gives Biden a 55.3% disapproval and just 39.6% approval.

The Trafalgar Group polled 1,077 likely general election midterm voters April 18-20. The results have a margin of error of 2.99 percentage points.
