After Dems Fail on Kavanaugh, Poll Shows Washington State Battleground District Moving Safely Back to GOP

ㅤ”At 49 percent, Rossi leads Schrier’s 39 percent, well outside the poll’s five percent margin of error. The survey of 400 eligible voters was conducted from Oct. 4 to Oct. 9 by Crosscut/Elway.
ㅤIn a piece on the poll, Crosscut’s David Kroman wrote that this was unmistakably due to the Democrats’ mishandling of the Kavanaugh confirmation.
ㅤ’Rossi, a former state senator and real-estate investor, saw an especially large bump last weekend, claiming a 24-point advantage among voters surveyed in the hours and days immediately after the U.S. Senate’s vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh,’ Kroman wrote. ‘Those respondents made up nearly a third of the total voters surveyed.’
ㅤKroman’s piece cites Elway Research President and pollster Stuart Elway as saying it appears as though the Democrats’ handling of Kavanaugh has ‘erased’ their advantage heading into the midterms.
ㅤ’What appears to have happened here is the Kavanaugh hearings have erased [the Democrats’] advantage,’ Elway, whom Crosscut notes has an A plus rating on FiveThirtyEight after decades of polling work, said. ‘Now it looks like what you would have expected this district to look like before everyone was talking about a blue wave.’..”
