Republicans trail Democrats by 10 points on a generic House ballot, according to a Quinnipiac University poll out Thursday.

According to the survey, 50 percent of respondents said they want to see Democrats win control of the House, compared with 40 percent who want the GOP to keep control of the chamber.

But the poll also found a major divide along party lines, with 92 percent of Republicans backing their party and 93 percent of Democrats supporting theirs. 


Another 10 percent of respondents said they either didn't know or declined to answer. 

While Democrats hold a sizable lead over Republicans in the poll, it marks a slight boost for the GOP after a Quinnipiac poll earlier this month found a 14-point lead for Democrats on a generic ballot.

The poll also showed a rise in President TrumpDonald John TrumpTed Cruz knocks New York Times for 'stunning' correction on Kavanaugh report US service member killed in Afghanistan Pro-Trump website edited British reality star's picture to show him wearing Trump hat MORE's approval rating — 39 percent — after it dipped to 33 percent in the university's last survey.

But the president continued to see dwindling approval of his handling of key issues, like healthcare and the environment — 33 percent approval in both cases.

In comparison, only 32 percent said they should keep their roles in the administration.

A majority of Republicans — 62 percent — support Ivanka Trump's and Kushner's continued roles in the White House, while only 26 percent said otherwise. 

The survey was conducted from Aug. 9-15 among 1,361 voters. Its margin of error is plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
