According to a new Rasmussen poll, Democrats and Republicans are tied for the first time in months in the Rasmussen Reports Generic Congressional Ballot. A telephone and online survey found that 44 percent of Likely U.S. Voters would choose a Democratic party candidate if the elections for Congress were held today. On the other side of the aisle, another 44 percent would now opt for the Republican option. Three percent prefer some other candidate, and eight percent remain undecided.

This represents a decline for Democrats, who held a 48 percent to 41 percent lead on the generic ballot just one week ago. The Rasmussen polling organization declared that this is the  first time the two parties have been tied since May. The Democrats regained their lead in early June and have maintained it since then. By early July, Democrats led by eight, their largest lead since January.

In the Real Clear Politics averaging of Generic Congressional Ballot polling, the website gave the Democrats a 6.7 point lead.
