Tightening Generic Ballot Numbers

In case you haven't heard, the generic ballot numbers tightened over the weekend, yet still favor the Democrats. This is causing consternation among the left.

Yet look at these numbers from 1994 via Hotline on Call .

ABC: --- 47-46 in favor of the Dems (a 6-point swing in the last week toward the Dems)
Gallup: --- 51-44 for the GOP (a 4 point swing in the last week toward the Dems)
NBC: --- 46-35 for the GOP (a 2 point swing in the two weeks toward the Dems)
Times Mirror: --- 48-43 for the GOP (a 7 point swing in the last month toward the Dems)

Those numbers look strangely similar to this years.
