Our friends at Real Clear Politics have pulled together the latest generic Congressional preference polls and find that, on the average, the Democrats lead by two points, 44% to 42%. This difference is insignificant, except that it fails to show any late surge in the direction of either party. The significant issue, as always, will be voter sentiment in the relatively few competitive districts. Meanwhile, the right direction/wrong direction polls are showing a trend in favor of “right direction.” I generally find this poll question to be unhelpful; however, a number of pundits have purported to find signs of an anti-incumbent wave, which these numbers do not support.
