Billionaire Republican Donor Will Fund Democrats 'For the Good of the Country'

Billionaire Republican Donor Will Fund Democrats 'For the Good of the Country'

The GOP's 6-point edge is narrower than in September 2014, the last time the Journal/NBC poll asked about the issue, when the GOP was preferred by a margin of 18 percentage points.

Only one New Jersey lawmaker, Rep. Tom MacArthur, R-3rd Dist., supported the Republican tax bill.

The Post-ABC poll also showed a slight uptick in President Donald Trump's approval rating as well, with 40% approving and 56% disapproving of how he is handling his job. (This is much less negative than Trump's 57-36 percent unfavorable-favorable score, albeit with a substantially higher share of don't knows.) As such, Pelosi's impact looks like a wash overall - except, potentially, in terms of motivating the Republican base. Almost half of New Jersey residents believe their taxes will go up because of the law, and only 19 percent think they will go down.

"Most New Jerseyans feel like they've ended up with the short end of the stick from these tax reforms", Murray said. Those who do say it's "extremely important" that the candidate have their views on Trump "favor the Democrats over Republicans by 11 points, 54 percent to 43 percent".

Nearly half of N.J. registered voters, 48 percent, said they expected to pay more in federal taxes even as New Jersey already sends billions of dollars more to Washington than it receives in services. Just 19 percent expect their taxes to go down, while another 25 percent think there will be no impact.

Carl Chery is the one that managed to strike a collaboration between Apple Music and Chance the Rapper, the Grammy-winning artist. It turns out the Swedish company will soon be stealing one of the most valuable people that helped Apple Music rise.

"Those are seats that Republicans would argue have never been on the battlefield in the past", said Rep. "New Jersey is going to be an important part, a critical part, of us wining back the House".

Further, among Republican likely voters, 95 percent say they would vote for their party's candidate, which is up from 89 percent in January and now matches the level among Democrats, 95 percent.

Democrats have a 19-point advantage over Republicans in the generic House ballot among all registered voters in New Jersey, according to a Monmouth University Poll released Monday.

But the Republican advantage in their five districts was only 46 percent to 44 percent, within the margin of error, compared with 23 points four years ago.

A GOP mega-donor and hedge fund billionaire is fed up with the president and Republicans' inability to get things done despite having control of the Congress and the White House, so he's giving his money to Democrats. Even in GOP-held House districts, only 42 percent of residents approve of the tax plan, while 46 percent disapprove. Democrats won the statewide House vote by 8 points (53 percent to 45 percent) in 2016 and by just 2 points (50 percent to 48 percent) in the 2014 midterm, according to the Monmouth University Polling Institute. "These results suggest that New Jersey Republicans are facing hurricane-force headwinds right now".
