Mostly Good News for GOP in 10 New House Race Polls

The Hill unveils poll results in ten House districts, mostly open seat races:

Tennessee 8: D: Roy Herron, 37 percent; R: Stephen Fincher, 47 percent

Washington 3: D: Denny Heck, 40 percent; R: Jaime Herrera, 42 percent

Arkansas 1: D: Chad Causey, 34 percent; R: Rick Crawford, 46 percent

Wisconsin 7: D: Julie Lassa, 35 percent; R: Sean Duffy, 44 percent

Illinois 10: D: Dan Seals, 49 percent; R: Robert Dold, 37 percent

Hawaii 1: D: Colleen Hanabusa, 41 percent, R: Charles Djou, 45 percent

Pennsylvania 7: D: Bryan Lentz, 39 percent, R: Patrick Meehan, 40 percent

New Hampshire 2: D: Ann Kuster, 42 percent R: Charlie Bass, 45 percent

Michigan 1: D: Gary McDowell, 39 percent R: Dan Benishek, 42 percent

West Virginia 1: D: Mike Oliverio, 42 percent; R: David McKinley, 39 percent

These are all largely good results for the GOP, although I’m sure they wish they had larger leads in several of these.

Illinois 10 is Mark Kirk’s old seat; that one was always Democrat-heavy and going to be tough to keep in an open seat race. Similar deal for West Virginia’s 1st District. Djou’s lead is perhaps the most substantial surprise.

My guess is that Ace’s Ewok will write another love letter to Sean Duffy before the day is through.

Wajahat Ali, Ctd.

I gather he didn’t like my comment on his New York Times op-ed on the folly of reaching out to Trump supporters. He snipes, “I await The National Review’s piece on reaching out to Biden voters and reading about their ‘elegy’ and understanding their ‘economic anxiety.’” After the 2016 election, ... Read More

The Imaginary Trump

Like Andrew Jackson, Donald Trump is man who represents the age in which he lived. Whatever you may think of the age. Jackson embodied a generation of men who had risen and made their mark in a young country. He represented their desire for greater representation, even if it had costs for slaves and Indians. He ...
