A new poll released on Monday from a left-leaning news publication showed that the Democrats are paying dearly for their disastrous week last week where they lied about President Donald Trump's comments regarding violent MS-13 gang members.

The Reuters Poll revealed that the double-digit lead that the Democrats held over Republicans last month in generic ballot voting for the 2018 midterms among registered voters is now completely gone as Republicans have opened up a six-point lead over the Democrats.

The poll, for the week ending on May 20, shows Republicans at 40.7 percent with Democrats falling down to 34.5 percent. This is the first time Republicans have taken the lead in Reuters' poll in approximately a year.

Last week, President Trump called violent MS-13 gang members "animals," and Democrats like Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lied about his remarks, claiming that he was talking about immigrants.

Recent polls have shown that Republicans could win up to nine seats in the Senate and that Millennials are leaving the Democratic Party in droves.
