New Poll Is Happy News for Senate Republicans

10 March 2018

"EMILY's List and others endorse in primaries, but what I think I would have done differently is, again, I would have kept the campaign focused on the issues-what are you fighting for, things of that nature".

Which brings us to Tuesday night.

According to the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association, which represents toll facility owners and operators, Connecticut, Michigan, Wyoming and other states are considering opening new toll roads, and some states already have tolls opening this year.

While 2002 was a high water mark for Democratic turnout in Texas it also showed the limits of the exuberance for turning the state blue.

Fast-forward to earlier this month, when Trump hastily announced he would be placing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, a proposal deemed sacrilegious by traditional Republican orthodoxy and sure to win him few allies. Republicans, however, still led - casting 1.5 million ballots.

Two of those Democratic net gains came in Texas congressional districts.

The poll shows Trump's approval rating is 46 percent in Florida, tied with Pennsylvania.

He noted that 1.5 million Republicans "voted and barely a million Democrats turned out".

The proposal has drawn opposition from minority Republicans who wanted to give a bigger cut and reduce the taxes in 2018 - when property taxes for many spike to pay for court-ordered public school reforms approved in 2017. But in California, they can create a problem.

Statewide, it was the largest Democratic turnout in 17 years for a midterm primary with one million Democratic voters. The same works in the other direction: A Republican wave would probably overwhelm the new pro-Democratic map. The Democrats' Great Irish (and faux-Mexican) Hope Robert "Beto" O'Rourke managed about 600,000, or about 60 percent of the vote, against a pair of unfunded challengers. "That's why I'm showing up to every single part of Texas".

The pollsters also note that despite Democrats' apparent disadvantage, several races are still very close.

And there were four "swing" House Districts NBC News advertised as worth watching based on Trump's soft performance in 2016 - the 7th, 21st, 23rd, and 32.

The governor said he took sides in primaries because he wanted Republican voters to have alternatives, and now that they have spoken he's ready to move on to November, when the GOP will be fighting to stop a feared "blue wave" that could sweep some of their candidates out of the heavily-Republican Legislature.

Don't bet against Moser winning that runoff, but definitely bet against her beating Culberson in the fall. "I'm always going to take the alternative where we have a number of well-qualified people who are really litigating the case for the first time in these districts". In 2012, Ted Cruz won the Hispanic vote by 43 percent and Governor Greg Abbott won by 44 percent in his election in 2014.

Time for the week that was in Texas politics with Patrick Svitek, the primary political correspondent for the Texas Tribune. But one can appreciate the work the Democrats on the court did by looking at a middling outcome. In 2016, he carried the district with nearly 60 percent of the vote, nearly 7 percentage points ahead of Donald Trump. And Claire McCaskill, who looked toasty six years ago until GOP nominee Todd Akin self-destructed, is a living reminder that you never know what might happen next.

SB 6614 would redirect $935 million in property-tax revenue from the state's general fund to a separate account set aside for spending on education.
