I'm kinda scratching my head where Breitbart came up with its numbers; it says:
For the week ending May 20, Republicans are at 40.7 percent while Democrats have slipped down to 34.5 percent. The survey was of 1,139 respondents
However, the Reuters site is completely different:
WEEK ENDING MAY 20TH, 2018
That would still be pretty good news for the Republicans if the poll isn't an outlier; an Economist/YouGov from 5/20-22 still shows the Dems up by 5, which is more consistent with other polls. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/2018_generic_congressional_vote-6185.html
I have my doubts about the Reuters poll, however. The sample consisted of 634 Democrats, 765 Republicans and 298 Independents/Other Parties. It also had 699 Trump voters in 2016 compared to only 515 Clinton voters despite the fact HRC won the popular vote. This is hardly a representative sample and the poll looks completely flawed.
