Women favor Democratic control of Congress by 25 points, according to the Wall Street Journal. Men favor the GOP by 3.

With just under two months until election day, voter confidence in a Republican-led Congress continues to decline, according to a recent Wall Street Journal poll, and women are far more disenchanted with current leadership than men.

> Less than two months before Election Day, 52% of registered voters said they would prefer Democrats to control Congress, while 40% preferred Republican control. That 12-point lead expanded from an 8-point Democratic edge in August.



> The poll found that Democrats are benefiting from a strong showing of support among women. By 3 percentage points, men want Republicans rather than Democrats to control Congress, 47% to 44%. Women, by contrast, favor Democratic control by 25 percentage points—58% to 33%.

The survey was conducted after Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was made public, the Journal noted.
