House Republicans lead Democrats by 10 points among likely U.S. voters less than five months before November's midterm elections, according to a Rasmussen survey released Friday.
Forty-nine percent of voters say they're leaning toward a Republican candidate, while just 39% favor a Democrat in the Rasmussen survey, which polled 2,500 likely U.S. voters between July 17-21.
That's a two-point improvement for GOP candidates compared to last week's Rasmussen survey, in which Republicans maintained an eight-point percentage lead, 48-40.
Accounting for the remaining 12 percentage points in this week's survey, 8% weren't sure about their November preferences, and 4% favor a third-party candidate.
Republicans need a net positive of five seats to claim the majority in the House chamber, and a net positive of just one seat to control the Senate.
