    Staying home in Hawaii and casting House votes by proxy doesn't seem to have done Rep. Kai Kahele a lot of good in his bid for his state's Democratic gubernatorial nomination, according to a new Honolulu Civil Beat/Hawaii News Now poll. ​​SENATE DEMOCRATIC RECONCILIATION TALKS REVIVED AMID MANCHIN AGREEMENT ON DRUG PRICING The poll found Lt.

    Democratic candidate Rita Hart is planning to file a recount request in the race for Iowa's 2nd Congressional District, where she trails Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks by only 48 votes.  Hart's campaign manager noted Thursday that there have been errors in tabulation and data-entry identified in two counties in the past week.  "Multiple consequential errors have materialized in this race that have serious implications for the district's future representation. Given the errors found in Jasper and Lucas counties at the eleventh hour, we are moving forward today with requests for a complete recount of each precinct in the Second Congressional District to make sure all results have been reported accurately. Anything less will perpetuate doubt around this election," Zach Meunier said in a statement.  FILE: AUG 13: Former Iowa State Senator Rita Hart at home in Wheatland, Iowa.

    Democratic Senate candidate Cal Cunningham, who faces an Army Reserve investigation after revelations he engaged in an extramarital affair, is continuing to fundraise even though his opponent, Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., is approximately 95,000 votes ahead. Cunningham's campaign said any donations will be split with Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock. REPUBLICAN MARK ROBINSON ON HISTORIC LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR WIN: 'THIS PARTY IS OPEN TO EVERYBODY' "I'll be honest: I've got an incredibly tough fight ahead. We poured every cent we had into getting this far - which means we're now back to square one," Cunningham's campaign said in a fundraising pitch, NC Insider editor Colin Campbell reported. "With all eyes on Georgia, the GOP is gearing up to flood us with millions in attack ads, and we're already facing a budget deficit."

    Three Long Island state Senate Democrats face the steepest climbs to victory as election officials prepare to count the more than 1.5 million absentee ballots returned so far, a Post analysis reveals. State Sens. Monica Martinez, Jim Gaughran and Kevin Thomas face gaps of at least 15 percentage points between the number of votes they need to win and the number of absentee ballots Democratic voters have returned so far. “It’s no surprise that Long Island poses a particular challenge for Democrats, that’s always been the case,” said Prof. David Birdsell, the dean of the Baruch College’s Marxe School of Public and International Affairs. “The further you go out on Long Island, the bigger challenge is.” Republicans hammered the trio of Democratic lawmakers for backing the 2019 budget deal struck by the state’s Democratic leadership that contained New York’s controversial overhaul of its bail laws. Suffolk County’s Martinez needs to win 84 percent of the roughly 20,000 absentee ballots returned in her district as of Friday to take the lead. But voters with Democratic Party registration accounted for just 46...

    Incumbent Brooklyn state Sen. Andrew Gounardes narrowly trailed Republican challenger Vito Bruno in his bid to secure a second term Tuesday — keeping state Democratic hopes of a supermajority in Albany’s upper chamber up in the air. Bruno scored 52 percent of the ballots cast during early voting and on Election Day while Gounardes netted 47 percent, with 90 precincts reporting. Roughly 3,000 votes separated the two late Tuesday night. These results are not final and do not include any votes from the 39,290 absentee ballots mailed to voters in the district, who opted to skip in-person voting during the coronavirus pandemic. Under state law, the Board of Elections cannot begin to tally the absentee ballots until after Election Day. Officials say they plan to begin the count on Monday. The 22nd District cuts across a broad swath of southern Brooklyn, including much of Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and Bensonhurst, before it zigzags over to Marine Mark. Republicans pinned their hopes of winning the seat back on Bruno, a nightclub impresario who once dreamed of becoming Brooklyn Borough President....
    WHITE HOUSE - U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters on Wednesday his poll numbers in some battleground states are better than what major surveys show, which have him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden.  "Poll numbers are very good. You don't see the real poll numbers," said Trump, speaking at his Las Vegas hotel before heading to Arizona for a pair of campaign rallies.  A voter sits on the sidewalk as voters wait in long lines to cast their ballots during early voting at St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, Oct. 28, 2020. The wait to vote was over 4 hours.National polls typically show Biden with a lead of 7 to 8 percentage points lead over Trump, but with about half that margin in key battleground states that are likely to determine the outcome in the Electoral College.  "We're up in almost all of the states that we're talking about," according to the president, who said he is "doing fantastically" in Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania, and that he is also leading in Michigan and Wisconsin.  The surveys that show him...

    Less than a month out from the election, President Trump is settling scores and serving up red meat to his base. He is projecting defiance of the pandemic that robbed him of the economic boom that once looked likely to propel him to a second term; declassifying material related to the Russia investigation that supporters feared would hound him from office; and breaking off negotiations with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on a new COVID-19 assistance package that might have juiced economic numbers before Election Day. Instead, Trump is pressing forward with a Supreme Court nomination before the end of the year, a move that splits the public, according to a Washington Examiner/YouGov poll. But as another round of national and swing-state polls show the president trailing Democratic challenger Joe Biden, some are questioning the strategy behind boosting Trump’s appeal with voters who are already likely to be in his camp. “Trump's team has clearly made the calculated decision to appeal directly and full-throatedly to his base,” said veteran Republican strategist and pollster Frank Luntz. “The problem with that misguided strategy...
    A new survey of Maine voters finds that Republican Sen. Susan Collins faces an uphill climb to winning reelection in November. The poll, conducted by Citizen Data, shows Collins earning 40.82% support from voters in the state versus 48.95% support for her Democratic challenger, Sara Gideon. Another 6.67% of voters remain unsure of who they will support. Citizen Data interviewed 600 likely voters between Friday and Monday. The survey carries a 4-point margin of error. A RealClearPolitics average of recent polls, which does not include the latest from Citizen Data, has Gideon, the current speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, leading by 4.5 points. Collins first entered the Senate in 1997. Long known as a centrist, Collins has taken heat during President Trump's administration for towing the GOP party line, including backing the fall 2018 nomination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The Maine race is among five top-tier Senate contests that Democrats are targeting in their bid to win a majority in the chamber. Republicans currently have a 53-47 edge. On Wednesday,...
