After a well-deserved break in Mar-A-Lago on President’s day, POTUS Donald Trump returned to the White House today and was back to his good old self on twitter, bashing the opposition.
Though most of his comments were directed at the Mueller Russia investigation and how he’s been much tougher than his predecessors vis-à-vis the Kremlin, Mr Trump also pointed out that for the first time in months the Republican party has taken the lead in the Generic ballot for the Midterm elections.
The President tweeted: “Republicans are now leading the Generic Poll, perhaps because of the popular Tax Cuts which the Dems want to take away. Actually, they want to raise you taxes, substantially. Also, they want to do nothing on DACA, R’s want to fix!”

With 23 percent still undecided, some 39 percent of registered voters explained they would be backing a GOP candidate in their district. Thirty-eight percent said they would support a Democrat.
What the poll did show was the growing understanding of the voting public for the GOP's ability to handle the economy and deliver jobs.
It comes as Democrats have grown increasingly worried about public opinion of the GOP tax cuts, which they didn’t back, whilst they are trying to use economic messaging to make their case, which is backfiring.
In a variety of polls across the political spectrum, Democrats still hold the advantage though.
According to RealClearPolitics. Democrats are still leading most mainstream media polls with a roughly 7 percentage point lead, which is a significant drop knowing that they led at a certain point by 13 percentage points.
