The Polling Report for September 18, 2018

A new CNN poll in Arizona finds Kyrsten Sinema (D) tops Martha McSally (R) by 7 points in the U.S. senate race, 50% to 43% among likely voters.

In Tennessee, Phil Bredesen (D) holds a 5-point edge over Marsha Blackburn (R), 50% to 45% among likely voters there.

Roughly 1 in 6 voters in each state say there’s a chance they’ll change their mind before Election Day.

Meanwhile, things are looking good for Democrats in the Governor’s races. Governing Magazine has recalibrated:  “As the primary season came to a close, more gubernatorial races became competitive, and the Democrats remain in a better position than Republicans to gain ground this fall…  The six seats moving in Democrats’ favor are in Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wisconsin

In a neutral political environment, Democrats should be able to gain perhaps three governorships. But if the political winds prove to be in the Democrats’ favor, their net gain could be as high as five to seven seats. For the first time since 2006, the GOP will control the White House and Congress during a midterm election — a balance of power that historically helps the party not in office.”

  1. Looks good, perhaps great, but I expect an assortment of “October Surprises”, dirty tricks and acts of desperation from the Republicans. As has happened several times in recent years they will attempt to do as much damage as possible before being shown the door, to date they have shown themselves capable of anything including trying to start a war.

    • I’m waiting for the usual narrowing in the polls and the subsequent Dem freakout.
