CNN Poll of Polls: Tracking the race for U.S. House control
Ahead of America’s Congressional elections, polls frequently ask voters which party’s candidate they would support in their own House district, a question sometimes referred to as the “generic ballot.” The CNN Poll of Polls averages these results as measured by non-partisan, national surveys that meet CNN’s standards. Generic ballot polling provides a look at the overall political environment, but since members of Congress are elected from individual districts, a party’s share of support in such a national poll may not directly correlate to the number of seats they win in the U.S. House. A close divide in generic ballot preferences often signals Republican gains in the House. See generic ballot polling over time
CNN Poll of Polls: Biden poll tracking
An average of recent polls can often paint a more reliable picture of how the public views the president than a single poll can. The CNN Poll of Polls tracks President Joe Biden’s average approval and disapproval ratings in national polls. It includes the most recent results on this question which meet CNN’s standards for reporting and which measure the views of all US adults. The CNN Poll of Polls does not have a margin of sampling error. See Biden’s approval rating over time
