New York Times Poll Says Republicans Surging, Up Double Digits in TN and TX



A Tuesday New York Times poll of Congressional races has Republicans in the lead ahead of the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

The polling also shows Republican candidates for the U.S. House leading in states like Pennsylvania, Ohio and North Carolina, which are typically hard-fought races in districts that can swing either left or right.

For example, the poll shows incumbent Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) leading Democrat challenger Ron DiNicola by an eight point margin in Pennsylvania’s 16th Congressional District.

In North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District, incumbent Rep. Ted Bud (R-N.C.) leads challenger Kathy Manning, funded by Silicon Valley, by a modest six points.

Incumbent Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) leads challenger Aftab Pureval outside the margin of error, in Ohio’s 1st Congressional District, according to the poll.

“Our poll is a good result for Republicans. It’s just one poll, though,” the paper reassuringly told its leftist readers of the Ohio race.

The poll also shows Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District, billed as one of the Democrats’ most vulnerable seats, essentially tied. Former State Rep. Joe Radinovich, a Democrat, has a meager one point lead over Republican city commissioner Pete Stauber.

The Times’ poll was released in the midst of Democrats vowing vengeance at the voting booth over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”



Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
