Republicans ahead in generic polling!
This is new and very rare. The Democrats are the party of free stuff, the Republicans the party of charging you less for it. Not surprisingly free stuff with no price tag associated directly to it is more popular as a general rule than lowering its price tag, a price tag that is not directly tied to the goods one receives and is, for most voters, paid by someone else in any case. That people are now willing to say they want the generic Republican says a lot.
