Castro Forms Exploratory Committee for 2020

There have already been a few lower-tier Democrats who have said they are running for President, but I would say this might be the first of what the media would consider major candidates to at least formally announce he is forming an exploratory committee.

Seems early, but with the number of candidates likely announcing after New Year’s Day, might as well get your name out there in th empty space instead of it getting mixed up with other candidate’s announcing at the same time.

Hyde-Smith Leads Espy by 10% in MS Runoff

A new poll paid for by RRH Elections has Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith up by double digits over Democrat Mike Espy in this final race of the 2018 election cycle for the US Senate.

Cindy Hyde-Smith (R) 54%
Mike Espy (D) 44%

This poll was done November 18-24 among 684 likely voters. The election is tomorrow night and the polling has been nearly non-existent in this race for the runoff and considering that the final weekend was Thanksgiving weekend, not sure how reliable any poll could be over this past weekend.

Michelle Obama Leads Trump by 7%

In a potential match up between Donald Trump and Michelle Obama in 2020, Obama leads Trump by a 7% margin according to a new poll by Rasmussen Reports.

Michelle Obama (D) 50%
Donald Trump (R-inc) 43%

This poll was done November 12-13 among 1000 likely voters. Of course, it should be noted that one day before the Election two weeks ago, Rasmussen Reports claim Republicans had a lead in the Generic Ballot US House test, only to see Republicans lose by more than 7%. As far as I can tell, the gang at Rasmussen Reports has yet to explain why they were so far off….

Post Election Day Thread

Election Night is over
Democrats win the US House
Republicans gain in the US Senate
Villanova beats Morgan State 100-77
Larry Hogan easily wins a second term in Maryland although it seems like the rest of the Republican Party in Maryland got wiped out

I’ve said it many times over the past couple years, but I hope this upcoming cycle to get much more engaged on this site than I have been over the past few years and get back to what it was in the past.
