    I'd like to see the USC/Dornsife poll on this. It the only one I really trust.

    House Democrats Lead Republicans By A Large Margin
    http://dailycaller.com/2018/07/25/ho...-large-margin/

    House Democrats are ahead of Republicans 12 percentage points in the lead-up to the November midterm elections, according to a Wednesday Quinnipiac University poll.

    If the November midterm elections were held in July, 51 percent of voters say they would vote for a Democrat, compared to 39 percent that would vote for Republicans.

    The divide is large among male and female voters. With an almost 2 to 1 backing, women throw their support behind Democrats 57 percent to 32 percent. Men are more evenly divided on whether they would support a Republican or Democrat in November. Roughly 46 percent of men would vote for a Republican and 46 percent would support a Democrat.

    The Daily Caller printed this. They must think there's something behind it.

    I don't put much faith in polls either. But 8 of the 9 July polls on this question are in the 5-8% range and the RCP average is 7.2%. This Quinnipiac poll seems to be an outlier.
    NEWS FLASH: Jeff Sessions arrested in the lobby of the Department of Justice for loitering. Details to follow.

    It may be. I hope it lights a fire under Republicans and gets them out to vote in November.

    The Republican voters just need to get out there. Perhaps the image of Mad Maxine and increasingly geriatric Pelosi should inspire them.

    I don't believe any poll that tries to show Dems leading anything.

    That's dumb.

    What are the poll-responders gonna do? Vote Democrat, so they can turn back around and vote Republican in 2-years?

    " Gosh. I guess Dems really are as backward and socialistic as the conservatives told us they were back in 2018. "

    Besides, the DOW is up 150.00 today, and the 2nd Quarter GDP will be released momentarily, probably showing a 4% growth in the economy:

    Quinnipiac must think they're being clever, hosting a poll like that before the numbers come-out.

    Remember, Hillary had a 98% chance of winning in '16 according to the polls.

    We have a liberal governor here and he has been completely shut down and silenced by the sitting conservatives with control of the purse strings in the state legislature, it is one area the food stamp kings can't seem to steal each election. Controlling the money is key in local and state and federal. I can't imagine this nation returning to being a third world country again by these ass wipes and socialist, we aren't going to allow them to destroy us.

    Polling house races are near impossible. That is why they only poll a few select races. Even then it's still hard to poll correctly.

    What they are likely doing is a nation-wide or a state wide general polling of voters and not those in any particular district. Which case its less reliable. Take for example, the district I live in is fairly red. But statewide it's purple. We have a town in our district that is something like 80%+ Republican. So using a nationwide or statewide poll for our district will not be true for us.
