Trouble is on the horizon…
There’s a year and 46 days left until the presidential and congressional elections are set to take place. Trying to project what the outcome of those races will be at this time might seem foolish, but there are ample reasons for doing so. For starters, polls this far out aren’t completely out of line with what’s going to eventually happen. In 2018, for instance, an Economist/YouGov poll predicted a 9-point advantage for Democrats in a generic congressional ballot poll. The final outcome of the midterm elections was just above an 8-point advantage for Dems over Republicans.
Second, knowing where things stand now may give us an idea of where the parties are planning to go in the coming months. If one party is presently behind, we can expect a barrage of attacks from them against the other, or, perhaps in a more positive manner, a number of policy ideas they may propose in order to curry favor from the public.
So taking a glance at polls now gives us an idea of where public sentiment is presently standing — and where, unless changes are made by either of the two major political parties, things may stand in November 2020.
