1994 Generic Ballot Trending for Democrats
Hotline editor Chuck Todd presents a flashback to the generic congressional ballot surveys in the closing days of 1994:
ABC: — 47-46 in favor of the Dems (a 6-point swing in the last week toward the Dems)
Gallup: — 51-44 for the GOP (a 4 point swing in the last week toward the Dems)
NBC: — 46-35 for the GOP (a 2 point swing in the two weeks toward the Dems)
Times Mirror: — 48-43 for the GOP (a 7 point swing in the last month toward the Dems)
He says this is “worth noting as folks chatter all day about the meaning of today’s Pew, Gallup and ABC generic ballot closings.”
For those who have forgotten, that’s the year the Republicans took over both Houses in dramatic fashion.
