    Thanks to Trump? Poll: Dem leads by 4 points in Pennsylvania House race

    Democrat Conor Lamb has a four-point lead over Republican Rick Saccone in a new poll released Friday, days before a special election for the House seat in Pennsylvania,.

    Lamb, a former federal prosecutor and Marine veteran, leads the GOP state legislator by 48 percent to 44 percent in the new RABA Research poll. It was first published by Talking Points Memo.
    If Lamb wins, it would be an upset given the fact that the Pittsburgh area district was taken by President Trump in the 2016 election by nearly 20 points.

    that's not the only reason it would be an upset.

    Just saw on the news the area is expected to get hit with that massive Noreaster coming up the coast. They were showing generators being brought in to keep power on if necessary.

    If the weather is as bad as some predict, which candidate would be hurt the most?

    This would be a big symbolic win only (which is a big deal)

    The district where this election is taking place, is going to be re-drawn in time of the Nov. election

    Which means if Lamb does win, and wants to run again in the new district, he's going to have to change some of his positions (he is running as a "Conservative Democrat)

    The new district leans pretty progressive.

    Or what they will vote for the guy Trump supports? The other choices are the Green Party, the Libretarian Party or the Socialist party. If they are that progressive maybe we will have the first socialist in Congress other than Bernie who tries to hide it.

    Pfft,

    Nothing new about about that.

    It's common sense for ALL politicians to be running on things that are imporant to the people that live in said district.

    It's very possible that Lamb would face a D primary challenger in the new district.

    So? If the new people in the newly drawn district want someone more left than he is then he will get primaried as it should be. I don't quite understand why if the seat is coming up again in 2018 there is a special election now? Would not the Governor of that state just appoint someone until Nov 2018?
