Political Betting Markets See Generic Congressional Ballot Tightening

US

Political betting market Predictit has seen a significant increase in betting on the generic congressional ballot tightening to less than 1.9% by tomorrow. The change in betting dynamics is likely due to the impact of Friday's Supreme Court ruling on Dobbs vs Jackson.

  • One of the key questions ahead of the midterms is whether or not the SCOTUS decision will fundamentally alter the dynamics of a midterm cycle which was predicted by many likely to hand both chambers of Congress to the GOP.
  • The Real Clear Politics generic congressional ballot tracker showed the GOP at +3.8 when the Supreme Court released its ruling. That has since tightened to 2.8 based on a NPR/PBS/Marist poll which reported a dramatic swing towards Democrats.
  • Tomorrow will see the release of another batch of generic ballot polling which should determine whether a trend has emerged or suggest that the NPR/PBS/Marist was an outlier.
  • This morning the Cook Political Report wrote: “The president’s party often struggles in midterms, although extraordinary circumstances can save them from losses. The Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe vs. Wade could be 2022’s extraordinary circumstance.”
