Dallas County Republican Party Sue to Bounce 128 Democrats Off the Ballot

Dallas County Republicans file lawsuit to kick 128 Democrats off election ballot

The new poll's 49% Democrat to 44% Republican margin among registered voters is nearly identical to Democrats' standing in January of 2006, the last midterm election year in which they made significant gains in the House of Representatives. Democrats' 12 percentage-point advantage on this "generic ballot" question is the largest in Post-ABC polling since 2006, although it is slightly larger than other polls this month.

Last fall, when ABC and the Washington Post polled the same question, the gap stood at 15 points. Democrats would fall five seats short even if they won all contests the Cook Political Report classifies as solidly Democratic, leaning Democratic or toss-ups.

If the GOP lawsuit is successful in getting the Democracts kicked off the ballot, Republicans could have clear paths to victory in dozens of general election races in November. They think Democrats will have to pay a price for opposing the law, as not a single member of their party voted for it.

"When it comes to election law and protecting the sanctity of the ballot we take this legal obligation seriously", said Republican Party Chairwoman Missy Shorey in a statement.

Antipathy for Trump is concentrated among both women and independents, helping to explain Democrats' strong standing.

One obstacle for Democrats - which Republicans hope to solidify amid the shutdown - is the perception that they are exclusively opposing Trump.

"Texas Republicans are constantly looking for ways to disenfranchise minority voters".

Dylan now lives married with a 16-month-old daughter in CT . "And it's hard for me to see him and hear his voice", Farrow said. On CBS, she called Allen's version of events - that a distraught Mia Farrow coached her story - "crazy".

"When we started our push for tax cuts, I guaranteed that our bill would bring about more occupations, higher wages, and colossal alleviation for white collar class families, and that is precisely what we have conveyed", the president said.

Republicans, who lamented the economy's slow growth under President Barack Obama in recent midterm elections, hope that rising economic optimism will shield their party from major losses this year.

Beyond these basic partisan dynamics, the poll finds a majority of voters more apt to back a candidate for Congress who opposes President Trump (52%), with just 41% saying they prefer a candidate who'll back the President.

On the Democratic side, the campaign enthusiasm is contagious.

Democrats usually have less support among likely voters, because the party's main backers tend to have lower turnout, but that does not appear to be the case at the moment, as they have locked down their base.

The CNN Poll was conducted by SSRS January 14-18 among a random national sample of 1,005 adults reached on landlines or cellphones by a live interviewer. The margin of sampling error for overall results is plus or minus 3.5 points, and four points among the sample of 846 registered voters.
