Most Americans support Democratic candidates in the House, but Republicans are catching up according to the Quinnipiac University Poll.

In a national survey released on Tuesday, Quinnipiac found that almost half of Americans support the Democratic candidate for the House in their local district, lower than the results of a poll taken in September.

  • Oct. Democratic candidate: 49 percent.
  • Oct. Republican candidate: 42 percent.
  • Oct. Don’t know or other: 8 percent.
  • Sept. Democratic candidate: 52 percent.
  • Sept. Republican candidate: 38 percent.
  • Sept. Don’t know or other: 10 percent.

The poll also found that most voters would prefer Democrats in charge of the Senate, and that most disapprove of President Donald Trump’s job performance.

  • Democrats in charge: 50 percent.
  • Republicans in charge: 43 percent.
  • Don’t know or other: 7 percent.
  • Approve of Trump: 53 percent.
  • Disapprove of Trump: 41 percent.
  • Don’t know or other: 6 percent.

"The numbers suggest the big blue wave may have lost some of its momentum as House races tighten. President Donald Trump's approval remains deeply in the red," said Tim Malloy, Quinnipiac University Poll assistant director, in a press release.

"But five weeks out, voters prefer Democrats to take control of the Senate, putting the more elusive prize for Democrats within reach,” he added.

Quinnipiac University polled 1,111 voters nationwide from Sept. 27-30, with a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percentage points.
