Moore/Strange Lead AL GOP Primary Race

Friday, August 11th, 2017

I come back from a week plus long vacation with no Internet and find out the United States is on the brink of war with North Korea. Meanwhile, there is a primary election for the US Senate seat in Alabama currently occupied by Luther Strange and two polls show him trailing the front runner Roy Moore although both are in position to make the runoff.The polls come from Cyngal and L2 and from Strategy Research.

US SENATE – ALABAMA – GOP PRIMARY (Cygnal/L2)
Roy Moore 31%
Luther Strange (inc) 23%
Mo Brooks 18%
Trip Pittman 7%

US SENATE – ALABAMA – GOP PRIMARY (Strategy Research)
Roy Moore 35%
Luther Strange (inc) 29%
Mo Brooks 19%
Trip Pittman 9%
Everyone Else 1% or less

Both these polls were done August 9th among likely voters.

The primary election is August 15th.

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

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.

PRESIDENT – NATIONAL (PPP)
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%

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.

GOVERNOR – NEW JERSEY (Monmouth)
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!
