It’s not just Gallup: Washington Post poll has GOP up six points among likely voters

Coming on the heels of yesterday’s “astonishing” Gallup results, the Washington Post confirms that the GOP is cruising toward November:

Among likely voters, Republicans hold a six-point edge, 49 percent to 43 percent, on the congressional ballot. At this time four years ago, Democrats led by 12 points. Then, Democrats also held a 19-point advantage when voters were asked which party they trusted to deal with the country’s main problems.

Large Republican leads on generic ballot questions are nearly unprecedented, but it’s likely poll results are going to tighten as the election gets near and voters around the country start focusing in on their particular races.
