New Jersey Democrats in Strong Position to Flip GOP Districts

From the past two House elections, such five districts were solidly red, averaging a 22-point gain for Republicans.

That's a reversal from the merged NBC/WSJ polling data in 2010 - a wave year for Republicans - when 66 percent of Republicans expressed a high level of interest, compared with 49 percent for Democrats.

A GOP mega-donor and hedge fund billionaire is fed up with the president and Republicans' inability to get things done despite having control of the Congress and the White House, so he's giving his money to Democrats.

Though the party itself is flush with cash, there's only so much to go around when headwinds are afflicting almost every House race and 43 Republican incumbents have been outraised by their Democratic challengers so far in 2018, Politico reports.

A recent Monmouth University Poll finds New Jersey voters would favor Democratic candidates over Republican candidates in their House of Representatives race by a margin of 19 percent.

The latest poll from ABC News and the Washington Post shows Democrats with a scant 4 point advantage, leading Republicans 47 to 43.

An NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll ran April 811 - exactly the exact time frame while the Post-ABC poll - found a 7-point advantage while in the generic congressional ballot for Democrats, right down from a 10-point border in March.

The poll was conducted April 8-11 among 1,002 adults and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Almost 40 percent of registered voters believe it is extremely important that political candidates share their views on gun control. That same CNN poll showed a 16-point Democratic edge in February. Moreover, only 39 percent of respondents strongly disapproved of the president. Only 35 percent of voters surveyed favor the law, which raises taxes on gasoline and diesel and hikes vehicle registration fees to fix roads and highways.

The incident resulted in gun control advocates haranguing both parties about rules tackling the issue.

President Trump is dragging down New Jersey Republicans, according to the poll.
