Laxalt Leads in Three Polls in NV

Friday, September 23rd, 2022

We have not one, not two, but three polls out of Nevada this week that shows Republicans might be in a good position to pick up the US Senate seat in Nevada. They come from Insider Advantage, Trafalgar Group, and Data for Progress.

US SENATE – NEVADA (Data For Progress)
Adam Laxalt (R) 47%
Catherine Cortez Masto (D-inc) 46%

US SENATE – NEVADA (Trafalgar Group)
Adam Laxalt (R) 47%
Catherine Cortez Masto (D-inc) 43%

US SENATE – NEVADA (Insider Advantage)
Adam Laxalt (R) 46%
Catherine Cortez Masto (D-inc) 43%

The DFP poll was done September 14-19, the Trafalgar poll was done September 17-20 and the IA poll as done September 20, all among likely voters.

Walker Both Leads Warnock By 2% and Trails Warnock By 5% in Two Separate Polls in GA

Tuesday, September 20th, 2022

We have two polls out of Georgia this morning that seem to contradict each other on the state of the race for the US Senate but seem to be in line on gubernatorial race. In a poll from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Herschel Walker holds a slight lead over Raphael Warnock while Brian Kemp is now up by high single digits over Stacey Abrams. Marist College shows a similar high single-digit lead for Kemp over Abrams but shows the opposite result in the US Senate race with Warnock up by 5%.

US SENATE – GEORGIA (AJC)
Herschel Walker (R) 46%
Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 44%

US SENATE – GEORGIA (Marist)
Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 47%
Herschel Walker (R) 42%

GOVERNOR – GEORGIA (AJC)
Brian Kemp (R-inc) 50%
Stacey Abrams (D) 42%

GOVERNOR – GEORGIA (Marist)
Brian Kemp (R-inc) 50%
Stacey Abrams (D) 44%

The AJC poll was done over a much longer period of time, September 5-16, among 861 likely voters. The Marist College poll was done September 12-15 and is among registered voters, which still using RVs this late in the election cycle seems a little odd and may be why the results are more favorable to the Democrats than the AJC poll.

Moore Crushing Cox By 22% in MD Gov Race

Monday, September 19th, 2022

Despite their own Governor having a job approval ratings consistently above the 60% level and sometimes even above the 70% level, Republicans in Maryland decided back in July they would rather go with the Donald Trump-backed candidate of Dan Cox instead of Hogan’s preferred choice of Kelly Schulz. even in the heat of the primary, just about everyone outside the Trump/Cox orbit was predicting that it would be a disaster for Maryland Republicans. Now we have a new poll out this morning from Goucher College that shows what a disaster it will be as Democrat Wes Moore holds a 22% lead over Cox.

GOVERNOR – MARYLAND (Goucher)
Wes Moore (D) 53%
Dan Cox (R) 31%

So instead of going with the electable Kelly Schulz and having an extended at least 12-year run in the Governor’s mansion, the Maryland Republicans will go back into the political obscurity they have lived in just about my entire cognizant life. This poll was done September 8-12 among 748 likely voters.

Oz Within 2% Of Fetterman in PA, Vance Leads in Two Polls in OH, Another Poll Has Johnson Up in WI

Saturday, September 17th, 2022

We have a new poll from the Trafalgar Group that shows both Republican candidates within 2% of their respective Democratic opponents for the open US Senate and Gubernatorial seats in the state of Pennsylvania.

US SENATE – PENNSYLVANIA (Trafalgar)
John Fetterman (D) 48%
Mehmet Oz (R) 46%

GOVERNOR – PENNSYLVANIA (Trafalgar)
Josh Shapiro (D) 47%
Doug Mastriano (D) 45%

This poll was done September 13-15 among 1078 likely voters. Meanwhile in Ohio, some good polling news for Republican JD Vance as two new polls, one from Emerson College and one from Civiqs, have him in the lead over Democrat Tim Ryan.

US SENATE – OHIO (Emerson)
JD Vance (R) 44%
Tim Ryan (D) 40%

US SENATE – OHIO (Civiqs)
JD Vance (R) 48%
Tim Ryan (D) 45%

The Emerson poll was done September 10-13 among 1000 likely voters while the Civiqs poll was done September 10-13 among 780 likely voters. Also from Civiqs is a new poll in the state of Wisconsin that shows Republican Ron Johnson above Democrat Mandela Barnes.

US SENATE – WISCONSIN (Civiqs)
Ron Johnson (R-inc) 49%
Mandela Barnes (D) 48%

This poll was done September 10-13 among 780 likely voters.

There is a rumor out there that we might be seeing a long-awaited poll for the gubernatorial race in my home state of Maryland on Monday where we will finally see if the Donald Trump-backed Dan Cox has any prayer to keep the Maryland gubernatorial seat in Republican hands after the immensely popular Republican Larry Hogan leaves office or whether Republicans will have managed to hand this seat back to the Democrats with their selection of Cox as their nominee.

Johnson Surges Into Lead in WI, Walker Trails by 6% to Warnock in GA

Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 52%
Herschel Walker (R) 46%

GOP Senate Candidates Trail in AZ and WI, Tied in NC

Friday, August 19th, 2022

We received new polls for the races in Arizona and Wisconsin yesterday that shows Republican Blake Masters trailing badly in his bid to pick up a seat for Republicans while Republican incumbent Rob Johnson is also trailing in his bid to keep a seat in Republican hands.

US SENATE – ARIZONA (Fox News)
Mark Kelly (D-inc) 50%
Blake Masters (R) 42%

US SENATE – WISCONSON (Fox News)
Mandela Barnes (D) 50%
Ron Johnson (R-inc) 46%

These polls were done August 12-16 among registered voters. Meanwhile, another US Senate seat Republican need to hang onto is in North Carolina and right now a new poll from Cygnal shows a dead-head tie to see who wins Thom Tillis’s seat.

US SENATE – NORTH CAROLINA (Cygnal)
Cherie Beasley (D) 42%
Ted Budd (R) 42%

This poll was done August 13-15 among 615 likely voters.

As we all know, Republicans need to pick up one net seat to gain a majority. You have to wonder how this is even possible when we are seeing in seats they currently have to maintain, they are either trailing or are struggling to be at best even in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.
