Republicans are slightly ahead of Democrats in a generic ballot on Congress of registered voters, according to a new Reuters five-day tracking poll, marking the first time the GOP had led in this election cycle.

Here are the results from the 1,338 voters surveyed May 17 and released Tuesday:

If the election for Congress were held today, would you vote for the Democratic candidate or the Republican candidate in your district where you live?

  • Republican: 38.1 percent.
  • Democrat: 36.7 percent.
  • Don't know: 15.4 percent.
  • Candidate from another party: 6.5 percent.
  • Will not or do not plan to vote: 3.3 percent.

But the results published Monday for the previous five days showed these results:

  • Democrat: 37.5 percent.
  • Republican: 36.4 percent.
  • Don't know: 16 percent.
  • Another party: 7 percent.
  • Will not or do not plan to vote: 3.2 percent.

In November, Democrats need to win 24 Republican seats to win back the House.

For the Senate, Democrats could win if three seats flipped, but Republicans are targeting several vulnerable Democrats who are seeking re-election.
