The Washington Post points to a set of polls (see item 5 in the link), conducted for the independent expenditure arm of the National Republican Congressional Committee, that shows Republicans leading in nine battleground districts throughout the country. In all but one case, the trailing Dem is an incumbent.
Several of the races are ones we have been following. In Florida’s Eighth Congressional District, Dan Webster leads the despicable Rep. Alan Grayson 46-30. In Ohio’s Fifteenth District, Steve Stivers leads hard-leftist Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy 51-39. And in Washington’s Third District, Jaime Herrera leads Denny Heck 51-38.
Since these are Republican internal polls, they should perhaps be viewed with caution. But the margins in the three races mentioned above are so large that you have to like Republican chances in all three. For what it’s worth, the only margin of the three that surprised me was Herrera’s.
