Democrats lead Republicans by 8 points on the latest generic congressional ballot from Public Policy Polling. 

The results:

  • 49 percent would vote for a Democrat running in their district;
  • 41 percent would vote for a Republican.

Despite the strong result, Democrats actually performed better on a generic ballot in December:

  • 51 percent would vote for a Democrat;
  • 40 percent would vote for a Republican.

PPP also found that Republican leaders received a mixed response from those surveyed, when compared to the December poll:

  • 44 percent approve of President Donald Trump, up from 41 percent;
  • 29 percent approve of House Speaker Paul Ryan, up from 23 percent;
  • 14 percent approve of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, up from 13 percent;

The poll also found that most voters oppose the GOP tax bill and the proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and support the Affordable Care Act and the Dream Act.

  • Tax bill: 38 percent support, 41 percent oppose;
  • ACA: 47 percent support, 35 percent oppose;
  • Dream Act: 67 percent support, 21 percent oppose;
  • Wall: 40 percent support, 53 percent oppose.

PPP surveyed 687 registered voters from February 9-11, 80 percent by phone and 20 percent through an opt-in internet panel, with a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percent.
