LATEST HOUSE SURVEY….Greenberg Quinlan Rosner just finished a survey of the 50 most competitive House seats currently held by Republicans. Respondents were asked about the candidates in their districts by name, and the results were pretty positive for Democrats:
In the top tier of the most competitive 16 seats, the Democrats have increased their lead to 8 points, 52 to 44 percent; in the second tier of 17 seats, the Democrats have kept their lead of exactly 6 points (50 to 44 percent). In both cases, the named Republican candidate is only getting 44 percent of the vote.
That’s 33 seats. Republicans will probably close the gap in a few of those districts over the next couple of weeks, but it doesn’t seem likely they’re going to close the gap in all of them. At least, not if Democrats keep fighting.
