By    |   Tuesday, 15 May 2018 02:41 PM

The Democratic lead in the midterm elections has decreased in the latest nationwide Zogby poll released on Tuesday.

Forty percent of likely voters said they will chose a Democratic candidate in the midterm elections, while 33 percent said they would pick a Republican and 21 percent were undecided.

The seven percentage-point advantage for Democrats was less than the 10-percentage point lead Democrats had in the January survey, when 44 percent chose Democrats, 34 percent Republicans and 17 percent were undecided.

Other results from the poll include:

  • Support for Republicans among women has decreased from 33 percent to 29 percent since January.
  • Among millennial voters aged 18-29, support for Republicans has gained nine percentage points, as backing for Democrats in that age group went down significantly from 51 percent in January to only 37 percent in the latest survey.
  • Among white voters, 38 percent support Republicans and 34 percent back Democrats, while 51 percent of Hispanics support Democrats and 26 percent Republicans. African American voters favor Democrats by a 65 percent to 6 percent margin, although backing for Democrats among blacks has plummeted 20 percentage points since January.
  • Among NASCAR fans, 41 percent back Republicans and 36 percent prefer Democrats, while among Walmart shoppers, there is a tie at 40 percent. In January, both these groups supported Democrats.
  • When likely voters were asked who they trust more to grow the economy, Trump received 41 percent, while only 35 percent chose Democratic leaders.
  • Trump also won 40 percent to 38 percent for Democratic leaders when voters were asked who they trust more to keep America safe.

The poll was conducted among 881 likely voters in the U.S. between May 10-12. The survey has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
