Real Clear Politics president Tom Bevan said Democrats have lost their generic ballot lead in competitive House districts for the upcoming midterms, calling it a “good sign for Republicans” with elections so close.

“In these competitive districts, [Democrats’] generic ballot lead has disappeared,” Bevan said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. (RELATED: Real Clear Politics Analyst Sees Republicans On The Rise In Battleground States)

“What that suggests is that Democrats are overperforming in very blue districts, very blue states, but not as much in some of these more competitive districts. And that’s a good sign for Republicans I think, just two weeks before the election.”


Bevan cautioned against trusting any one poll to determine the election’s outcome, but said the numbers are trending toward Republicans. He also said health care will be a central issue across the board.

“Let’s not make too much of any one single poll, but we have seen some of these similar trends in other polls, especially in President Trump’s job approval rating,” he said.

“Health care definitely seems to be in all these races. Everybody’s talking about it. We saw it in the Florida’s governor race last night — the debate,” Bevan said. “But the economy’s there and that was the other thing from The Wall Street Journal poll. Republicans have the best rating on the economy that they’ve ever had in the history of that poll.”
