Hillary Damaging DimocRAT Chances for Senate


Recommended Posts

Spreading the pain.

Less than two months until Election Day, Democratic confidence has been shaken, as Hillary Clinton suddenly finds herself trailing Donald Trump in some swing states and a fresh batch of polls show GOP incumbents in the lead.

In Ohio and Florida, GOP incumbents now have double-digit leads, according to a new CNN-ORC poll released Wednesday, undercutting Democratic efforts to pick up seats once viewed as prime opportunities. In New Hampshire, two polls show Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte now in the lead after falling behind Gov. Maggie Hassan last month. And in Nevada, Rep. Joe Heck holds a slight edge over his Democratic challenger Catherine Cortez Masto, buoyed in part by Trump’s sudden resurgence in their state.[/size][/font][/color]

This comes as other seats that once appeared within reach, like John McCain’s in Arizona, seem to be a steeper climb. And a prized Democratic recruit in Indiana, former Sen. Evan Bayh, has stumbled on the campaign trail, seeing his once commanding lead now shrinking to single digits.

One thing in common: Trump has all-but-erased Clinton’s lead in some of the key battleground states with major Senate races, according to a batch of new public opinion polls. He’s up by 5 points in Ohio and 3 in Florida, according to the CNN-ORC poll.
