Poll: Republicans Lead in 11 of 12 Hot Races

Wednesday, 06 Oct 2010 11:29 AM

A new poll from The Hill/America’s Natural Gas Alliance shows that Republicans lead in 11 of 12 hard-fought races that could determine who controls the House next year, and the last contest is a tie. All the races involve freshmen Democrats, The Hill reports.

Republicans, lead, top, contestsThe only good news for the Democrats is that none of the 12 Republicans hit the 50 percent level in the poll, and six of them have leads within the margin of error. Still, overall it’s reason to cheer for the GOP.

“This is a particularly volatile set of districts,” said pollster Mark Penn. “Overall, we see a strong Republican trend in these districts, but given where these numbers are, the races haven’t broken yet. … Very few of these races are really put away one way or the other.”

Republicans have to add a net 39 seats to gain control of the House.
