Republican members of Congress breathed a sigh of relief Monday with new polls showing GOP legislators closing the gap with liberal lawmakers; cutting the Democratic edge to five points just months before voters head to the polls.

Among all adults, Democrats held a wider lead of 10 percentage points over Republicans in the generic ballot. They opted for Republicans to Democrats by a 14-point margin in March, up from a 5-point difference in January. Those issues have traditionally played to the GOP's strength. Recent polls have found conflicting evidence of whether voters are gearing up to produce a wave that would favor Democrats.

The Democrats held a 54 percent to 35 percent edge in the Monmouth University poll's generic ballot holds up, threatening five Republican-held seats.

Should the Democrats carry the midterm elections, they must be magnanimous in victory.

Self-reported registration is one indicator as it is less a measure of actual registration than of political engagement.

Sixty-one percent of men and 56 percent of women say they are certain to vote, with 55 percent of female registered voters saying they favor a Democratic candidate and 50 percent of men backing a Republican. That contrasts with 87 percent among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, up slightly from 82 percent three months ago.

The insurgence of President Donald Trump, along with congressional Republicans' willingness to support him, have Klarman changing his tune.

In the new poll, 35% said they thought Republicans would do a better job handling the economy, while 28% said Democrats would be better.

Seventy-eight percent of Americans and registered voters alike say it's important to them to support a candidate who shares their opinion on gun policy, including four in 10 who say it's "extremely" important.

Three-quarters of voters who prioritize enacting new gun laws support Democrats for Congress, whereas 80 percent of likely voters who believe gun rights are more important support Republicans.

While not a registered Republican, Klarman has a long history of donating to the GOP, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, Klarman has donated to candidates, political action committees and the Republican National Committee. His average approval rating at 15 months in office is the lowest on record for any president in polling, dating to the Truman administration.

Some core constituencies for each party expressed tepid interest in turning out to vote in an off-year election, when many eligible voters typically stay home. But many more registered voters are unfavorable toward Trump than favorable, which keeps Trump as more of a vulnerability for the GOP.

He has cut checks to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other top Democrats in the House and Senate. (This is much less negative than Trump's 57-36 percent unfavorable-favorable score, albeit with a substantially higher share of don't knows.) As such, Pelosi's impact looks like a wash overall - except, potentially, in terms of motivating the Republican base.

The poll of 703 New Jersey adults, including a subset of 632 registered voters, was conducted from April 6 to April 10. It had a margin of error plus or minus 3.7 percentage points for your complete sample and 3.9 percentage points for registered voters. See details on the survey's methodology here.
