Poll: Trump unpopularity dragging down two vulnerable California Republicans | TheHill

Quote:
President Trump’s unpopularity in California appears to be having a significant drag on two vulnerable House Republicans racing to save their seats.

Reps. Dana Rohrabacher and Steve Knight are both facing voters who say they are unlikely to vote for their incumbent representatives, according to a new poll from the University of California, Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies.

And in both cases, voters said in the poll they were less likely to vote for the Republican lawmakers because of Trump.

In Rohrabacher’s district, 86 percent of voters who disapprove of the president are unlikely to vote to reelect their congressman, the poll found.

In Knight’s district, that number rises to 90 percent. A majority of likely voters in both districts disapprove of Trump, according to the poll, which was reported on by the Sacramento Bee.

Two-thirds of registered voters in California say they disapprove of Trump, according to a survey by the same pollster last month.

Knight and Rohracher’s races are both rated as toss-ups by the Cook Political Report.

Even though Knight’s district has a similar number of Democrats and Republicans and Rohrabacher’s district has more Republicans than Democrats, the strong distaste for Trump has left both congressmen facing an uphill climb, according to the poll.

I hate to see this one go. I have a great deal of respect for him. Great interview by him tonight. I hope he is destined for greater things.

Cook Political Report moves 21 House races toward Dems | TheHill

Quote:
The Cook Political Report, a non-partisan elections analyst, moved 21 House races in favor of the Democratic Party in its latest rankings released on Thursday.

The swing includes a mixture of safe and swing seats where Cook believes the Democratic Party has become more likely to either win a new seat or re-elect an incumbent.
Quote:
About 50 Democratic challengers outraised Republican incumbents in the last three months of 2017, while only a small handful of Republican challengers raised more than the Democratic incumbent they hope to face
......
"Most new district-by-district fundraising and polling numbers are downright terrible for Republicans, even in seats previously thought to be safe," Wasserman wrote in a blog post announcing the shift.
Quote:
And he went on to suggest that the Cook analysis "still understates Democrats' potential in individual races," arguing that more Republicans could be at risk if strong challengers emerge in those districts.

Poll: Feinstein holds massive lead in primary

Quote:
California Sen. Dianne Feinstein is breezing toward re-election, according to a new poll, with a massive lead over the fellow Democrat challenging her from the left.

Feinstein leads state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León by nearly 30 percentage points — 46 percent to 17 percent — among likely California voters, according to a poll by the Public Policy Institute of California.

Though a third of likely voters remain undecided, the poll reflects the long odds facing de León as he seeks to unseat California’s senior senator. Feinstein, a centrist Democrat, is polling ahead of de León by wide margins among Democrats, independent voters, men, women and people of all racial and ethnic groups.

Election contrast in the Trump era: Republican pugilists vs. Democratic pacifiers

Quote:
Republicans cast themselves as hard-charging as President Trump, focused on storming Washington to fight governing elites on behalf of average Americans. Democrats, seizing on congressional dysfunction, present themselves as pragmatic and willing to move beyond political division toward compromise.

It’s a messaging battle that will help define the coming campaign season, with voters getting the final say.

One would expect the progressive DeLeon to be doing well, instead of the centrist Feinstein.

My opinion, she is too old.

So will the center, and I think, for the most part, they will not be voting GOP

Cruz warns Texas GOP: 'The left is going to show up' | TheHill

Quote:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is warning his party that the "left is going to show up" in the 2018 midterm elections.

During a speech Friday addressing the Fort Bend County GOP, Cruz talked about an "incredible volatility in politics right now," according to the Texas Tribune.

"Let me tell you right now: The left is going to show up," Cruz said during his keynote address at the party's Lincoln Reagan Dinner.

"They will crawl over broken glass in November to vote."

The local news this morning said the Democrats are 'coming out of the woodwork' to run for Rick Nolan's congressional seat. Hopefully, Stewie Mills will just stick to selling tires and fishing rods. :-)
