New Polls Show House GOP in Good Shape in Swing Districts

A number of polls in 2018 swing districts show that the Republican Party, despite unfavorable views of the president, looks poised to fend off challenges from Democrats in what many expect to be a wave year for the left.

Polls from the Global Strategy Group show that President Trump’s favorable ratings are underwater in TX-07, NJ-07, and FL-26, but the Republican incumbents in those states remain in good shape.

Here’s how Trump compares to the incumbents:

  • TX-07: Trump 44 percent favorable/ 51 percent unfavorable; Rep. John Culberson 38 percent favorable/30 percent unfavorable.
  • NJ-07: Trump 47 percent favorable/50 percent unfavorable; Rep. Leonard Lance 44 percent favorable/30 percent unfavorable.
  • FL-29: Trump 46 percent favorable/48 percent unfavorable; Rep. Carlos Curbelo 42 percent favorable/27 percent unfavorable.

National Journal’s Josh Kraushaar pointed out that the poll, from a Democratic group, puts Republicans in a good place. He also noted that Democrats are trailing Republicans in another key swing district.
