Democrats' midterm advantage narrows in new poll - KVOA | KVOA.com | Tucson, Arizona

The result is a mixed bag for the Republican Party, which has been hoping to battle political headwinds in the midterm elections by promoting the tax cut that Congress approved four months ago and by celebrating improvements in the economy. He has also donated $2 million to Democratic issues such as gun control and environmental protection.

Seth Klarman, the billionaire CEO of the Baupost Group who the Economist once dubbed "The Oracle of Boston", called out Republicans for failing to keep President Donald Trump in check.

And 45 percent disapproved of the Republican tax bill, which disproportionately affected New Jersey and other high-tax states by capping the federal deduction for state and local taxes. The Post-ABC poll finds that 40 percent approve of the president, up slightly from 36 percent in January to his highest level of support since last April. Opinion split largely along party lines, but even among Republicans support was far from unanimous: 56% of Republicans thought the law was a good idea.

Mr. Trump touted the benefits of the tax overhaul at an event Monday in Hialeah, Fla. "I received a tax cut I neither need nor want". "We've had tremendous success from the company standpoint and from the people's standpoint".

The western lowland gorilla gave birth at the Smithsonian National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute in the USA capital. She was on birth control pills when she first arrived at the zoo three years ago, according to the Washington Post .

Using another gauge, registered voters who see Trump favorably as a person are 10 points more likely than those who see him unfavorably to seek a candidate who agrees with them.

Mr. Trump predicted that if Democrats win control of Congress in the midterms they would raise taxes and "terminate" the rewrite of the tax code that he signed into law.

Many New Jerseyans aren't fans of the new federal tax law, either.

Looking at the broader policy landscape, the poll found that Republicans have regained the upper hand on dealing with economic issues.

Meanwhile, Russia says it will help secure visit of global chemical weapons inspectors to site of an alleged attack in Syria. State-run television showed images of an intercepted missile and called the attack an "aggression".

Making matters worse for Republicans, the poll found that the overall shift is mostly coming from GOP-controlled districts.

New-jersey has 12 representatives inside your home - 7 Democrats and five Republicans. Partisan divisions are 32-25-35 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.

In GOP-held House districts, 42 percent of residents approve of the tax plan and 46 percent disapprove, according to the poll.

Democrats have a 19-point lead over Republicans in the generic House ballot among registered voters in the state, according to a Monmouth University poll. Recent polls have found conflicting evidence of whether voters are gearing up to produce a wave that would favor Democrats.
