A pair of new polls this morning confirms what basically every other major public poll has been saying for some time: Democrats are poised for a poor showing in tomorrow’s election.

Gallup, whose numbers have bounced around significantly this cycle, now gives the GOP a 15-point lead on their congressional generic ballot, 55-40.

Pew yesterday released their final election season poll, giving the GOP a 48-42 lead over the incumbent Democrats.

The TPM Poll Average gives Republicans a 49.2-42.8 lead going into Tuesday’s election.
