Polls Show Republicans Leading in All GOP-Held Senate Seat Races

The 2018 Senate map always offered more opportunities for Republicans to pick up seats than Democrats, but a few seats – namely in Arizona, Nevada, and Tennessee – offered unique opportunities for Democrats to potentially pick up seats.

In Arizona and Tennessee, retiring senators created vacancies that offered unexpected pick-up opportunities for Democrats. And in Nevada, Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) is running for reelection in a tough battleground state.

But new polls in all three races this week show Republicans narrowly leading Democrats.

Arizona, via KTAR:

A poll released Wednesday by Phoenix-based OH Predictive Insights showed McSally leading her Democratic opponent, 47 percent to 41 percent.

Eight percent of voters remained undecided, and 4 percent said Green Party candidate Angela Green was their choice.

A month ago, OH Predictive had McSally with a lead over Sinema of 49 percent to 46 percent.

Nevada, via NBC News:

In the Senate race — one of the Democrats’ best pick-up opportunities in their bid to win control of that chamber — incumbent Republican Sen. Dean Heller gets support from 46 percent of likely voters, while Democratic challenger Jacky Rosen gets 44 percent.

When the matchup is expanded to include the Libertarian candidate and “none of these candidates,” which is an option on the Nevada ballot, Heller continues to lead by 2 points, 44 percent to 42 percent.

Tennessee, via CBS News:

Tennessee finds Republican Marsha Blackburn with an eight-point lead over Democrat Phil Bredesen, 50-42. Bredesen is a former governor who, having won statewide office before, has given Democrats hope of flipping a red state that Mr. Trump won easily.
