New Polls Show Battleground Dems Falling Behind

With barely a month until Election Day, a new round of polling sponsored by the NRCC paints a troubling picture for incumbent Democrats in battleground districts in Florida, Maryland and Virginia.

  • FL-24: Rep. Suzanne Kosmas (D) trails state Rep. Sandy Adams (R) by 10 percentage points — 39 to 49 — among likely voters.

  • MD-1: Rep. Frank Kravotil (D) trails state Sen. Andy Harris (R) by 4 points — 39 to 43 — among likely voters, with 3 percent going to third party candidates.

  • VA-2: Rep. Glenn Nye (D) trails Scott Rigell (R) be 5 points — 40 to 45 — among likely voters.

All three seats are in the top 15 of NBC First Read’s “Field of 64” list of the 64 House seats most likely to change hands in November.
