Siena Poll: Dems Hold Slight Lead Before Midterms Elections


There is a very narrow margin, but voters are saying they’re more likely to vote for a Democrat for Congress (46%) than a Republican (44%), according to a new poll conducted by The New York Times and Siena College.

“Seven weeks till the midterms, and America remains a country whose voters are deeply and closely divided on a wide range of issues and potential elections. Looking at the race for control of Congress, 95% of Democrats plan to vote for the Democrat, 96% of Republicans plan to vote for the Republican, and independents are closely divided, tilting toward the Republicans 41-40%,” said Dr. Don Levy, Director, Siena College Research Institute.

The poll that was conducted also looked ahead two years for the presidential election with 45% saying they’d vote for President Joe Biden, and 42% would support former President Donald Trump.

The New York Times/Siena College surveyed 1,399 registered voters nationwide between the dates of September 6th through the 14th.
