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 crash killed a married couple, Jennifer Jean Hart and Sarah Margaret Hart, both 38, and at least three of their six children. A poster shared by friends and relatives on social media suggested that the SUV matched the Thottapilly family's vehicle.

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.

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.

Columbia economist Richard Clarida tapped for vice chair of Federal Reserve
Clarida would become the Fed's No. 2 official, filling a vacancy created when Stanley Fischer stepped down last October. Bowman would fill a spot on the seven-member Fed board reserved for a community banker or regulator of community banks.

Democrats once had a 10 point lead "among all adults", but that has fallen "to 4 points among registered voters and 5 points among those who say they're both registered and certain to vote". It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
