Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS) reelection campaign may be sagging under the weight of Barack Obamas slide in popularity among American Jews.
The most recent poll data from Floridas 23rd Congressional District shows DWS is leading Republican Karen Harrington by 4.5% which is just inside the margin of error.
A Gravis Marketing poll conducted on October 1 and 2 (before Wednesday nights debate) found DWS receiving 44.2% to Harringtons 39.7% with a very significant 16.1% of potential voters calling themselves undecided.
Being under 45% with a month to go is a precipitous drop in support for DWS who beat Harrington 60/39 in 2010.
DSW under 45% this late with a 16.1% undecided might not mean Harrington wins, but it will mean DWS will have to spent money and time campaigning in her own District rather than going elsewhere to help other Democrats including Barack Obama.
The District has 13% more Democrats and although the geographic area is slightly different than it was in 2008, the core of this District voted 63% for Obama in 2008.
This means the 69 % White and largely Jewish District, at this point, is supporting DWS 18 points less than it supported Obama in 2008 and 15 points less than it supported her in 2010. Worse still, DWS actually trails 36/35.7 among those who are certain to vote for either candidate.
At this point the 13 point Democrat edge in the District is not helping her.
This begs the question: Why would a Jewish Democrat be under 45% at this point while campaigning in a highly Jewish Democrat District?..
And those undecided voters, where will they go? Two separate in-depth studies came to the same conclusion: 82% will eventually go to the challenger.. formula gives Wasserman Schultz 48.2% and Harrington 51.7%....
