Republicans are keeping a firm grip on their attempt to retake control of Congress, showing a massive lead over Democrats just three weeks away from the midterm elections, according to a new Rasmussen poll.

Forty-eight percent of likely U.S. voters reported that they would vote Republican if the election was held today, compared to 41% who said they would vote Democratic, according to the poll.

The poll shows a continuously climbing lead for Republicans compared to last week when Republicans were at 47% and Democrats were at 43%.

Republicans have led the polls in the Congressional Generic Ballot all year, with a record 10-point lead in July, the poll reported. Margins slimmed after July, yet predictions look positive as Republicans have reached a 7-point lead.

The current Republican lead is likely the result of the 16-point advantage gained through independent voters, the poll reported. Republicans are more likely to vote for their party over an independent with 85% of Republican respondents saying they will vote red, while only 82% of Democrats said they would vote blue.

Among unaffiliated voters, 46% said they would vote Republican, while 30% said they would vote Democratic, the poll reported. Nine percent of voters are voting for other candidates and 15% remain undecided.

The poll was conducted on Oct. 9 through Oct. 13 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-2 percentage points.
