Gallup predicts if 2010 midterms were held today, Republicans would win

Democrats and Republicans are neck-and-neck in generic balloting for the 2010 elections, a sign that all the prognostications of a tough midterm battle are correct.

Democrats retain a 46 percent to 44 percent lead over the GOP among registered voters, when asked which party they’ll vote for in the 2010 congressional races, according to a new survey from Gallup. That’s closer than it’s been, for the most part, since Democrats took control of Congress in 2006, except for moments of party parity in late 2006 and just after the Republican National Convention in September ’08.

But Gallup actually predicts that, if the elections were held today, Republicans would come out on top–something House Minority Whip Eric Cantor predicted not too long ago.
