Voters have no love for Democrats right now.
Today, the new Politico/Morning Consult poll found Republicans leading in the generic congressional ballot 39 percent to 38 percent.
Enough polls now show Democratic advantage in the generic ballot eroded or gone to start taking it seriously. It's the economy, stupid. https://t.co/xmqFbgryD4— (((JonathanWeisman))) (@jonathanweisman) February 14, 2018
Furthering this trend, Democrat Super Pac Priorities USA’s latest internal poll found President Trump’s approval rating has improved 4 points from November 2017.
They also found Republicans closing the gap in the November 2018 generic ballot.
Priorities USA’s conclusion was to tell Democrats to “reassert control over the economic narrative if they are going to maximize electoral success.”
However, the economic narrative is trending in favor of Republicans.

It will be pretty hard for @TheDemocrats to “reassert control over the economic narrative” when American workers are getting raises and keeping more money from each paycheck.https://t.co/kwoDGf8GgR
According to the Morning Consult, President Trump’s approval rating is improving BECAUSE of the economy.
While Trump’s net approval rating remained 7 points underwater in January — with 44 percent of registered voters approving of his job performance and 51 percent disapproving — the number represents a 2-point bump compared with his rating in September and a 4-point bump from October and November. … Some experts suggest Trump’s improved standing with the public, and Republican voters in particular, was partly due to rosy economic indicators during this period — from stock market gains to strong employment figures — and Republican lawmakers’ overhaul of the country’s tax code… “The improvement in Trump’s approval rating since the fall “most fundamentally reflects the economy,” Allan Lichtman, a political historian at American University, said in a Feb. 4 interview.

Since President Trump and Republicans in Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, millions of Americans have received bonuses, higher wages, and better benefits even before the bill has gone into full effect.
GOP takes lead on generic ballot in new poll via Politico/Morning Consult. Stunning considering gap was recently double-digits. Also - Trump approval 47 percent., disapproval 47 percent. With most of traditional media coverage so overwhelmingly negative, this is equally stunning https://t.co/MLQ2X13lZp— Joe Concha (@JoeConchaTV) February 14, 2018
