"That's what makes this plan a particularly tough sell for Republican House candidates here", Murray said. Further, turnout in November is the real question and a longstanding challenge for Democrats, whose voters tend to lag in midterm participation.

One potentially new factor in the mix of midterm issues is gun policy, which has emerged as a major voter consideration two months after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The previous occasion that poll was taken, back in Januarycandidates appreciated a 12-point border.

A 10-point Democratic lead among all adults narrows to 4 points among registered voters and 5 points among those who say they're both registered and certain to vote; neither of those is statistically significant.

The fundraising gap could reflect opposition to President Donald Trump and growing enthusiasm among rank-and-file Democrats toward the mid-term elections. He still faces a disapproval rating of 56 percent, according to poll, which is a higher rating than any president at this stage since the dawn of modern polling. "What remains consistent is Democrats running untested and flawed candidates against proven Republican leaders across New Jersey".

The 19-point advantage is significantly larger than the final results of recent congressional elections. "When those results hold, we can possibly be right down to just two or one - or zero - Republican associates at the state delegation after November".

Foster is accused of dragging his girlfriend by the hair and punching her in the head eight to 10 times. Foster remains out of jail on $75,000 bail and will return to court on April 30 for a plea hearing.

The Democrats held a 21-point edge in the seven districts they now hold, compared with 26 percent in the 2014 midterm elections. Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats to capture the majority.

The Post-ABC poll finds parity in stated voting intentions.

Overall, 47 percent of registered voters told WaPo they prefer Democratic candidates in their district, while 43 percent favor the GOP. Other polls are more split.

A March 2-9 CNN poll found the generic congressional ballot had tightened to some 6-point lead for Democrats. What a renewing change that would be: a government where both parties work together for the benefit of all.

Some core constituencies for each party expressed tepid interest in turning out to vote in an off-year election, when many eligible voters typically stay home. They are pushing for a measure to be included on the ballot that repeals the increase. Several polls have shown heightened support for restrictions aimed at curbing gun violence following February's massacre in Parkland. That includes roughly equal numbers on both sides of the issue - whether they prioritize enacting new laws to reduce gun violence or protecting the right to own guns.

It is the fourth full bench which decided the case as earlier three benches got dissolved due to different reasons. Reports say the meeting participants also shared views view on challenging the LHC decision in the Supreme Court.

Only 34 percent of New Jersey voters approve of the job Trump is doing, while 61 percent disapprove. Liberal voters are the only group that largely supports the law.

A smaller 31 percent say it is "extremely important" for congressional candidates to share their views aboutTrump, although more than half say this will be at least "very important".

The political climate has not been hospitable to Republicans, who see the governorship and state legislature controlled by Democrats.

Pelosi has a negative image, with 32 percent of Americans holding a favorable view of her, and 44 percent unfavorable. Among Republicans, she is well-known and widely disliked, with 74 percent holding unfavorable views of her, 63 percent strongly.

An NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll conducted April 8-11 - the same time frame as the Post-ABC poll - found a 7-point advantage in the generic congressional ballot for Democrats, down from a 10-point edge in March.
