Republicans now have a generic ballot lead of four points, according to new polling from Rasmussen.
Over the summer, the media tried to create a narrative about Democrats making a comeback just before the midterms, but that was just smoke and mirrors. Now that the midterms are immenent, the polling advantage has returned to the GOP.
Republicans will likely retake the House of Representatives, and their chances of retaking the Senate look better each week.

Rasmussen Poll: Republicans Expand Lead to Four Points on Generic Congressional Ballot
Thirty-two days before the midterm election, the lead for a Republican candidate expanded to four points against a Democrat on the generic congressional ballot, according to Rasmussen Reports’ weekly poll released Friday.
Friday’s poll showed the Republicans had gained some momentum back after only leading by one point on the generic congressional ballot last week.
The poll found that 47 percent of likely U.S. voters said they would elect a Republican, while 43 percent said they would vote for the Democrat. Only three percent said they would vote for another candidate, while another seven said they were not sure.
Nevertheless, a four-point lead on the generic ballot four weeks away from the election is a good sign for the Republicans, who are looking to net five seats, win back the majority, and unseat Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from her Speakership. In fact, the Republicans have led the generic ballot all year.
No amount of media spin is going to be able to help the Democrats.

There will be a red wave.
The only question is how big it will be in the end.
