Posted on 10/07/2018 1:38:04 AM PDT by 11th_VA
Republican Mark Harris leads Democrat Dan McCready by five percentage points for North Carolina's 9th Congressional District, according to a new poll by the New York Times and Sienna College.
Harris was favored by 47 percent respondents while McCready was favored by 42 percent. Eleven percent of voters are undecided in the race for the seat, which stretches from Republican areas in south Charlotte and Union County to Fayetteville.
The seat is considered one of the Democrats' best opportunities to flip a seat held by the GOP. Harris narrowly defeated Robert Pittenger in the May primary...
This is the first public poll of the race since July when Survey USA showed McCready ahead by seven percentage points.

Cook Political Report has This race as a Toss-up
On 7 November, we will likely awaken to find fewer than five GOP seats flipped, and maybe one or two Democratic seats flipped to the GOP...the blue wave simply never arrived.
On the Senate side, I think every single GOP seat is now safe, and there might be a gain of four to five Democratic seats.
Two years, tons of money, vast amount of energy by CNN and various journalists, social media in their favor.....with no real gain? It’s a pretty sour position to be in for the Democrats. Total rebuild from the ground up will be necessary.
I live in the most electorally volatile district in the country- NY24 (it was NY 25 prior to the 2012 redistricting with little change in district lines). It’s Syracuse and the surrounding area. It wen R in 2006, D in 2008, R in 2010, D in 2012 and R in 2014. In 2016 Republican John Katko won reelection. In a genuine Blue Wave it should either flip back to D or at least be in play. Yet Katko leads Democrat Dana Balter by 15 points in the most recent poll, granted in August. FWIW.
Thanks. Keep us posted on further developments in your district please.
Trump needs to have a big rally in Orange County. CA. A number of incumbent Repubs are in trouble in their races if polls are to believed.
I would love to see what the polls are for CT-5, which is an open seat. Manny Santos, the mayor of Meriden, sounds good and the 5th has 1 big city - Waterbury, a few small cities Torrington and Winsted and lots of small towns.
...”Thanks. Keep us posted on further developments in your district please.”...
Yes. It is crucial that everyone reading here at FR should volunteer to help in the few days left to keep the House in Republican hands. I think the Senate will gain seats, but we hear that the house might flip. This is a war we had better win, for, our nation needs to be returned to the tenets we had, really, through administrations up to Obama, when identity politics was born and formed. When we become Americans, that is what bonds us. Not our race, religion, ethnicity or anything else. We are unique in the history of the world and we must not allow the enemies of that take us back into the bad old times of mob rule through socialism and communism. Go to the Republican headquarters in your town, get handfuls of flyers and hand them out in your area. Talk to people. Put signs in your yards, windows, and bumper stickers on your car. In my town, I saw signs for the Democrat weeks ago and only now am I seeing signs of the Republican she wants to defeat. That is not the way to win elections. Unfortunately, FB and Twitter might censor your efforts there, so do not depend on that to have any effect. Thankfully, the signs appearing here seem to favor the Republican, but you never know. Our state has been flooded, with money from Hollywood, supporting the Dem.
I keep asking myself if the screaming misfits in the Senate gallery and on the Supreme Court steps are truly going to help the Democrats in this election (or any election).
My hope is that for every lib leaning voter inspired to show up at the polls on Nov. 6th there will be 4 or 5 normal people disgusted with their antics who are quietly planning on voting them out.
We shall see.
good news. thanks.
send a message to the President about this:
or to the Republican Congressional Committee:
Harris is a decent guy. I supported him in the primary. Pittenger was a decent guy, too, but I believe in term limits, and the only way to get them is to vote for the primary challenger. McCready has more vim than the usual Democrat candidate in these parts, though.
Please go out and vote regardless of the polls and bring a friend with you.
District 8 here. Myself, wife and daughter are all voting Hudson(R).
What worries me about this seat is the newcomers in Ballatyne and once you get on the other side of Monroe down 74 it’s a huge minority area
The eastern part of the district is lightly populated, and honestly, the minority voters often don’t vote unless there’s a minority candidate.
Total rebuild from the ground up will be necessary.
Tom Perez is doing a fine job.
13 point swing? Surfs up!
The left are no longer Americans
The left have degenerated into a cancer that is killing the Republic.
At the very least, the left must be ostracized....... friends, family, politicos
I have said it this past week and will say it again: there are now 12 to 14 likely pickups for Republicans in the House . That includes 4 in California 3 in Minnesota CT 5 Az 1 NJ 5 both New Hampshire seats and 2 in Florida.a and I’ll 17 In the Senate I have repeatedly said 11 pickups for Republicans and I stand by that.
For a number of reasons ole Joe didn’t save his seat with his yes vote he is on the wrong side of too many votes.
In ND Mo. Ind Fla Mt those seats were gone on opening day. Now add New Jersey and Minn.because they have three
districts where Trump won by 14 16 &30
Next is Much Penn and VA.
The explanations for each will follow this week.
