Election 2018 Polls: Will Republicans Lose the Senate?
RealClearPolitics averaged a series of polls taken over the past couple of weeks from such prominent entities as Rasmussen Reports, Gallup, Quinnipiac, and NPR/Marist, among others.
Even amid the intense debate over the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, RCP noted little change in President Donald Trump's approval ratings.
In a report accessed Monday, RealClearPolitics' average put President Donald Trump's approval rating at 43.8 percent, with a disapproval rating of 52.6 percent.
This is slightly better than last week, when President Trump scored an approval rating at 43.1 percent and a disapproval rating of 53.3 percent.
For their generic congressional vote, also accessed on Monday, RCP had the Democrats ahead with 48.9 percent, while the Republicans had 41.5 percent.
These numbers are virtually identical to the percentages reported by RCP last week, with RCP reporting Democrats having 49.1 percent, while the Republicans had 41.3 percent.
