Sixty-two percent of Americans believe the Senate will return to the Republicans on Tuesday, as hope that the Democrats will take over the House continues to fall, according to a new Rasmussen Reports
survey released on Friday.
The results from the survey of 1,000 adults conducted on Wednesday and Thursday compared with 54 percent who felt the GOP would win the upper chamber in early July and with 44 percent in early January, Rasmussen said.
The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
The latest Rasmussen survey comes as other polls indicate that the GOP will be victorious in the Senate on Election Day. Republicans need only six seats to take the chamber, while the party is widely expected to maintain control of the House.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has predicted
a "historic election night" — and Democrats are questioning the credibility
of various polls that have been used to forecast Republican success.
In the latest Rasmussen poll, only 24 percent said they believed that the GOP would not take the Senate. Twenty-two percent think it is very likely, while only 4 percent said it is not likely at all.
Fifteen percent of those surveyed, however, remained undecided.
By contrast, 34 percent said that Democrats were likely to wrest control of the House from Republicans. That is down from 40 percent in July and 44 percent in January, Rasmussen said.
Only 12 now say it’s very likely, while 51 percent said it is not likely to happen — and 25 percent say it is not going to happen.
Fourteen percent remained unsure, the survey found.
