A new USA Today/Suffolk University Poll finds President Trump “driving the decisions of a majority of voters who say they are determined to send a message of either support or opposition to him. That dynamic is giving Democrats an edge as the crucial campaign heads into the final stretch.”
“A majority of those surveyed say Trump will have ‘a lot’ of impact on their congressional vote on Nov. 6 – 35% who are casting their ballot to show their opposition to him, 23% to show their support. Only one in four say the president doesn’t have at least some effect on their vote.”
Democrats now lead the generic congressional ballot by eight points, 51% to 43%.
Just 25% of Americans are satisfied with "the way things are going in the U.S." That's despite the strong economy. https://t.co/hd8Mwtn9DU

A new Cook Political Report/LSU poll finds Democrats hold a nine point lead over Republicans in the 72 most competitive House races, as rated by the Cook Political Report. “Among voters who say President Trump will be a factor in their choice, more plan to use their vote so to show opposition to the President than to show support for the President, especially in competitive districts.”
Also interesting: “More people agree that Democrats should be elected to put a check on the President than agree that Republicans should be elected to keep the economy strong.”
Remember everything you've heard about Democrats' suburban surge?
It's wrong. OK maybe not wrong. It's partly right! But polling tells a more complicated story. Dems are performing just as well in rural Obama-Trump districts as urban Clinton-Romney ones.https://t.co/n5Cu2GhQ4m
