Iowa Democrats pick 2 women for targeted congressional seats

Despite Cox's long shot, says Dunn, it's obvious from the election results that Californians are disenchanted with the Democrat-dominated state, and those that aren't fleeing the exorbitant home prices, and higher and higher taxes, could voice their frustration in the voting booth.

Voters on Tuesday also went to the polls to choose candidates in primaries in Iowa, Mississippi, Alabama, Montana, South Dakota and New Mexico. He's been examining the pre-election polling data for more than a year.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised Republican candidates for their success in California's primary election Tuesday night and predicted there "may be a big red wave" come November. How did we get here? Trump tweeted on Wednesday. In the third, Issa's district, Republican Diane Harkey was leading in early returns, as two Democrats vied for the second slot.

In the end, Democratic candidates made it through to the final vote, as did Cox. He notched about 30 percent in a large field, though the second-place finisher remained unclear.

Cox was a relatively unknown Republican businessman before the election, but Trump has endorsed him personally in previous tweets. There were so many Democrats running that, they feared, Republicans could finish 1-2 in the primary and nail down wins. Republicans don't hold a single statewide office and are largely spectators in a Legislature dominated by Democrats.

There are 27 candidates looking to succeed Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, and more than two dozen looking to replace veteran US Senator Dianne Feinstein.

The poll, conducted by Luntz Global, includes an over-sampling of Trump voters, Republicans and small business owners. In addition, among Democrats Feinstein was preferred over de Leon three to one.

Rep. Martha Roby, a five-term congresswoman from Alabama, is paying the political price of withdrawing her support for Trump in 2016 after the release of the "Access Hollywood" tape in which he seemingly bragged about assaulting women.

Mark DiCamillo, director of the Berkeley IGS Poll. That is over double the $58 million spent in the 2016 election cycle.

According to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, however, while six in 10 Americans are now satisfied with the economy, and a plurality credit Donald Trump for it, most voters surveyed prefer candidates who promise to be a check on the president.

It's likely that sampling led to a result that could be more favorable for the GOP tax law, but the Job Creators Network said the results are significant nonetheless because they show some support for the tax law across-the-board and counteracts a narrative in the press that even Republicans don't fully support the tax law.

The same dynamic can be expected during the general election campaign.

Voters, or at least a majority of them, disapprove of Donald Trump.

But, voters in those precincts must choose either the Democratic ballot or the Republican ballot for the Senate nomination.

California has some of the highest gas prices in the nation, and the tax, which went in to effect a year ago, is a rare issue in California that seems to bring Democrats and Republicans together. Currently, two Democrats are separated by just 73 votes out of 105,000 total cast.

It looks as though the Democrats narrowly escaped that situation.

It was a tight race in California's 48th district.

The matchup all but ensures the former two-term San Francisco mayor will be California's next governor. Her opponents in Tuesday's election used that fact against her.

Right now, things are really too close to definitively name a victor. On the ballot, voters list their candidates in order of preference. Among the top Democrats is Michelle Lujan Grisham, a congresswoman who'd be the second Latina state chief executive.

How is that playing out?
