North Carolina Senate Poll……Marshall expands lead, many still undecided……

A shift among black voters has allowed Elaine Marshall to expand her lead in the closing days of the North Carolina Democratic Senate primary, but with 33% of voters still undecided it remains unclear who will come out ahead on Tuesday night.

Marshall leads Cal Cunningham 28-21, a week after she led 26-23. Marshall is now up 21-12 with black voters, a turnaround after Cunningham had led the previous three polls in that demographic including a 19-13 advantage in last week’s survey. Cunningham has been under attack by the leading African American candidate in the race, Kenneth Lewis, and whether the change in the last seven days is because of that or Marshall going on the air with television advertisements it’s made a difference in the race.

The news isn’t all bad for Cunningham though. 70% of his voters are firmly committed to him, compared to 60% of Marshall’s who say the same of her. In what’s likely to be a very low turnout race having the most passionate supporters could really make a difference. Also, the largest amount of undecided voters are in the greater Charlotte area where Cunningham is running television ads and Marshall is not.

It continues to be clear that this is a two person race. Lewis leads the second tier contenders with 9%, followed by Marcus Williams at 4%, Ann Worthy at 3%, and Susan Harris at 2%…….

[ Marshall and Cunnigham ]

PPP Poll…..

North Carolina Senate Democratic Primary  Race….

Elaine Marshall ……………………………………….. 28%

Cal Cunningham……………………………………… 21%

Kenneth Lewis ………………………………………… 9%

Marcus Williams………………………………………. 4%

Ann Worthy…………………………………………….. 3%

Susan Harris …………………………………………… 2%

Undecided………………………………………………. 33%

The piece suggests that Cunnigham is in a better position to win this primary……

Daniel……Arizona Senate: McCain leads Glassman, Hayworth trails him according to a new Survey from Public Policy Polling

Hello Folks!

2008 Presidential Candidate John McCain (R-AZ) has taken a BIG hit in his Approvals according to a new Survey from Public Policy Polling.

He still though leads Democrat Rodney Britz Glassman (D-AZ) by 13 Points in a General Election Match-Up.

What will certainly create more buzz around Democratic Circles is that Glassman leads McCain’s Chief Republican Rival J. D. Hayworth (R-AZ) by 3 Points.

Note to Readers: PPP is set to release Numbers for the Republican Primary in the Senate Race tomorrow.

Analysis:

Okay, we know McCain wouldn’t be in trouble against a Democrat.

Crunching out these Numbers I REALLY REALLY wonder how close Hayworth is in the GOP Primary.
McCain MUST be in BIG TROUBLE there. See, McCain could be facing the same fate as Utah Senator Robert “Bob” Bennett (R-UT). That would be CURIOUS if McCain would lose giving Democrats a shot at his Senate Seats.

More: HAD Obama not chosen former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano (D-AZ) as his Homeland Sec. McCain could be heading into a very competitive TOSS-UP Race or EVEN DEFEAT. I’m anxiously waiting on these Primary Numbers.

Bottom Line:

With McCain Dems have ZERO Chance, without him it’s a TOSS-UP.

Hey Daniel…… could this be a pushback on the Immigration Bill?…when did the polling finish up?

We did do a  post on how crazy things have been in the state…..

Answer……

PPP surveyed 813 Arizona voters from April 23rd to 25th………

From the New York Times….. Arizona Enacts Stringent Law on Immigration By RANDAL C. ARCHIBOLD Published: April 23, 2010 PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona signed the nation’s toughest bill on illegal immigration into law on Friday. Its aim is to identify, prosecute and deport illegal immigrants.

Damn Daniel….. she’s taking a beating in her own State after signing the Bill!

Things ARE crazy in that state.…..

Daniel……New Hampshire Governor: Is Governor John Lynch (D-NH) vulnerable? He doesn't seem immun against the hostile Electoral Mood against Democrats ……

Hello Dog Folks!

Might New Hampshire Incumbent Governor John Lynch (D-NH) vulnerable.

We’ve a little bit confirmation that his fourth Campaign for Governor might not be all that easy according to a new Public Policy Polling Survey.
EVEN he can’t escape the daunting Electoral Mood against Democrats.
Lynch ranked up lopsided Victories in 2006 (74 %) and 2008 (70 %). He only leads his potential strongest Challenger, former State HHS Commissioner John Stephen (R-NH) by only 11 Points.

A somewhat competitive Governor Race would be a HUGE benefit for former Attorney General Kelly A. Ayotte (R-NH) who is running for Senate.

Analysis:

Let me be clear: I doubt Lynch is going to lose.

That being said I also doubt he’s going to rank up that huge margins like he did in 2006 & 2008.
If we can hold Lynch around 55 % we’ve probably a decent good change holding the Senate Seat and winning the two Congressional Races.

Daniel……New Hampshire Congressional Districts 1 and 2: Guinta edges out Shea-Porter; Bass leads his 2004 Foe Katrina Swett (D-NH) by 15 Points according to a new Public Policy Polling Survey…….

Hello Dog Folks!

If Republicans want a shot at the House Majority in November they have to do well in some of the North-Eastern Congressional Districts like New Hampshire for example. The Granite State could play a big part of it. Manchester Mayor Frank Guinta (R-NH) edges out U. S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH) by 1 Point so this Race has to be considered as a TOSS-UP.

Meanwhile in the 2nd Congressional District (Hodes is running for the Senate) former U. S. Rep. Charles “Charlie” Bass (R-NH) holds an 15-Point lead over his 2004 Foe Katrina Swett (D-NH).

Both Survey were done by the known Public Policy Polling as Part of their New Hampshire Survey.
