Trump Trails Biden/Sanders/Harris/Booker For Re-election

We have a new poll from Public Policy Polling for the Presidential race in 2020 and it shows Donald Trump trailing by various margins against some well-known Democrats.

Joe Biden (D) 54%
Donald Trump (R-inc) 39%

Cory Booker (D) 45%
Donald Trump (R) 40%

Kamala Harris (D) 41%
Donald Trump (R-inc) 40%

Bernie Sanders (D) 52%
Donald Trump (R-inc) 39%

This poll was done July 14-17 among 836 registered voters. Of note to me, Trump seems to be stuck at 39-405 no matter who his Democratic opponent is.

Murphy Crushing Guadagno in NJ

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

I think we can probably safely put away the gubernatorial seat in New Jersey for the Democrats based on a new poll from Monmouth University.

Phil Murphy (D) 53%
Kim Guadagno (R) 26%

It is probably not help Guadagno that Chris Christie is down to a whopping 15% job approval rating that includes only 30% of REPUBLICANS approving of his job. This poll was done July 6-9 among 758 registered voters.

Happy Fourth of July!

Handel Keeps Surging in GA6

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

We had two new polls yesterday that show how much Karen Handel has surged in the US House race in Georgia. The latest poll from WSB and Landmark Communications shows the race down to a tenth of a percentage point.

Jon Ossoff (D) 49.0%
Karen Handel (R) 48.9%

This poll was done June 18th among 500 likely voters. Meanwhile, a new poll from The Trafalgar Group puts Karen Handel up by about 2%.

Karen Handel (R) 50.5%
Jon Ossoff (D) 48.6%

This poll was done June 17-18 among 1100 likely voters. The real counting starts tonight.

One Poll Has Ossoff Up 2%, Another Has Handel up 1% in GA

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

WSB and Landmark Communications’s latest poll in Georgia shows Jon Ossoff with a 2% lead over Karen Handel, one percentage point closer than their last poll.

Jon Ossoff (D) 50%
Karen Handel (R) 48%

This poll was done June 15th among 800 likely voters. Meanwhile, yet another polling outfit I have never heard of until now, CSP Polling, is out with a poll claiming it is Karen Handel with a 1% lead.

Karen Handel (R) 49%
Jon Ossoff (D) 48%

This poll was done June 15-17 among 571 likely voters. Interestingly the latest blog post this polling firm has on their website is about how badly they botched their polling in the just completed Virginia gubernatorial primary where they said Tom Periello was going to win by 5% before he ended up losing by double digits. Something to take into account in this latest poll.
