With less than 50 days until Election Day, our model moves slightly towards Republicans for both chambers this week in the aggregate. The generic ballot national environment receded down to D+8.7 from last week’s high of D+9.3, fueling some of that movement, while the individual district polling of the past week was a mixed bag for both parties. With 6 weeks to go, the same trend as has developed over the past 3 weeks continues: Democrats are in a strong position in the House, while Republicans are in a strong position in the Senate.
