Rasmussen: GOP Now Up By +10 Over Democrats on Generic Congressional Ballot; Biggest Lead in Almost Three Years

Of course, this being Rasmussen, the poll was commissioned by a secret cabal of Nazi revanchists living in Brazil, plotting to resurrect Adolf Hitler by cloning his brain.

The new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% would vote for their districtís Republican congressional candidate while 35% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent. Voter support for GOP congressional candidates increased slightly from last week, while support for Democrats fell two points.

Republicans started 2010 ahead by nine points, while support for Democrats fell to its lowest level over the same period. Towards the end of 2009, GOP candidates enjoyed a more modest lead over Democrats, with the gap between the two down to four points in early December. Since the beginning of the year, however, the Republican lead hasnít dipped below seven points.

Once again, if there's a third party Tea Party challenger on the ballot, the Democrats beat both:

But in a three-way generic ballot involving a Tea Party candidate, the Democratic candidate earns 34% support, while the Republican gets 27% of the vote with the Tea Party hopeful in third at 21%. Still, just 16% nationwide say they are part of the tea party movement.
