This Republican billionaire using his tax breaks to fund Democrats

The 19-percentage-point gap in favor of Democrats in New Jersey is significantly wider than the generic House vote edge of nine points in a national poll last month. In the five House seats now held by a Republican, 46 percent of voters prefer the GOP candidate and 44 percent the Democrat.

A Washington Post-ABC information poll released Monday showed a nationwide tightening for Democrats at a generic congressional ballot among registered voters, right down to a benefit of 4 percent points in 47 percent. The new poll found that Democrats could be competitive in the five Republican districts these midterms, with voter preference across those five districts almost evenly split for a generic GOP candidate (46%) compared with the Democrat (44%).

Four of the five GOP-held seats are CNN Key Races, with one listed in the leaning Democratic category, two as toss-ups and one as likely Republican.

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.

According to MLB's website , the swing propelled the ball 406 feet, with an exit velocity of 99 miles per hour . In Milwaukee, Billy Hamilton drove in three runs to help Cincinnati end an eight-game losing streak.

If the result holds in November, it could spell trouble for the five Republican representatives in the state.

But the rise of Donald Trump shocked and dismayed Klarman, as did the timid response from the Republican-controlled House and #Senate, which have acquiesced rather than challenge the president's erratic and divisive ways.

Only 34 percent of New Jersey voters approve of the job Trump is doing, while 61 percent disapprove. Nationally the new law has 41 percent support, while 42 percent are against it. Just 19 percent expect their taxes to go down, while another 25 percent think there will be no impact. Even among residents in the state's five GOP-held congressional districts, Trump's approval rating is only 43 percent, compared with 53 percent who disapprove. Forty-seven percent of these residents expect their federal taxes to go up, the poll found. "That's what makes this plan a particularly tough sell for Republican House candidates here", Murray said.

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. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
