A new robo poll from Democrats shows that ten months out the 3rd congressional district election appears close.
Incumbent Scott Tipton is below 50 percent in support and only 7 points ahead of Democrat Sal Pace – 46 percent to 39 percent.
A recent Washington Post/ABC poll shows only 13 percent of Americans approve the job congress is doing, and Republicans are rated lower (22%) than Democrats (33%). In the PPP poll, Tipton had a 36 percent approval of the job he is doing.
The poll was commissioned by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The results are a reflection of Tipton’s status as a first term incumbent, the partisan registration closeness of the district and the public’s general unhappiness with anyone in Washington D.C.
