47% Say GOP Takeover of Congress Would Bring ‘Noticeable Change’

Most voters now believe it is at least somewhat likely that Republicans will win control of both houses of Congress in this November’s elections, and nearly half say there will a noticeable change in the lives of Americans if this happens.

But a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that while 64% say a GOP takeover of the House is likely, only 34% believe it is Very Likely. Still, that’s up eight points from January when 26% said Republican control of the House was Very Likely. Twenty-five percent (25%) think that change is unlikely, but just six percent (6%) say it’s Not At All Likely.

Similarly, 56% think Republicans are likely to win a majority in the Senate in the upcoming elections, but just 24% say it is Very Likely. Thirty-one percent (31%) say GOP control of the Senate is not likely, with seven percent (7%) who believe it’s Not At All Likely to occur.

Interestingly, while roughly two-thirds of Mainstream voters say Republicans are likely to win both the House and Senate, most of those in the Political Class believe a GOP takeover is unlikely in either case.

Forty-seven percent (47%) of all voters say there will be a noticeable change in the lives of most Americans if Republicans win control of Congress, up slightly from 43% in February. Twenty-eight percent (28%) don’t believe GOP leadership of Congress will result in that kind of change, but another 25% are not sure.
