Some Democrats are signaling the potential for a rout, particularly in the House. A new survey by Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg gives Republicans a six-point edge, 49% to 43%, when likely voters are asked which party they support in House races.

Mr. Greenberg said the gap is narrowing as the party base becomes more engaged and voters start paying attention to candidates and their television ads. But it must close quickly, he said, for Democrats to be in contention to save their House majority. 'I do find movement,' with the numbers narrowing a bit, Mr. Greenberg said.
