WHILE WE'RE FOCUSING ON THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, LET'S NOT FORGET THAT THE CONGRESSIONAL RACES ARE JUST AS IMPORTANT IF WE WANT TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK.

Today In The Congressional Races

Quote:
Welcome to our newest feature here at Election Central -- a roundup of the latest news on a lot of those important down-ballot races.

The presidential race is obviously the biggest thing out there, but all across the country there are a lot of important elections going on that will collectively have an enormous effect on the agenda this country pursues and how effectively the next president will be able to govern.

In these roundups we hope to give you an idea of the big picture going on in those races -- not to mention the individual races themselves in all their quirky, dramatic and often brutally negative glory.

Look for the roundup twice every weekday, one at roughly 11 a.m. ET and one at 6 p.m. ET

Looks like Hagan is giving Elizabeth Dole something to worry about in the NC Senate race:

NC-SEN
Sep 20 PPP (D)Hagan (D) 46%, Dole (R) 41% ...

I'd love to see Dole get beat.

Today's Polls 10-04-08

We have five presidential polls today, all of them favoring Barack Obama.

After pulling out of Michigan yesterday, the only Kerry state McCain is fighting for is New Hampshire. But two new polls don't look encouraging for him. Saint Anselm college puts him 12 points behind and Rasmussen puts him 10 points behind. Rasmussen also put Obama ahead in Nevada, 51% to 47%.

State Obama McCain Start End Pollster
New Hampshire 49% 37% Sep 25 Sep 30 Saint Anselm Coll.
New Hampshire 53% 43% Oct 01 Oct 01 Rasmussen
Nevada 51% 47% Oct 02 Oct 02 Rasmussen
Rhode Island 48% 26% Sep 30 Oct 01 Opinion Factor
Washington 53% 43% Oct 02 Oct 02 Rasmussen


We also have four Senate polls. In North Carolina, state senator Kay Hagan (D) continues to have a small lead over Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC), 37% to 35%. This race was not expected to be close, but the DSCC has poured a lot of money into North Carolina and it seems to be helping. In Minnesota, a Princeton Survey poll puts former comedian Al Franken (D) ahead of Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN), 43% to 34%, with independent Dean Barkley at 18%.

State Democrat D-pct Republican R-pct Start End Pollster
Minnesota Al Franken 43% Norm Coleman* 34% Sep 30 Oct 02 Princeton Survey
North Carolina Kay Hagan 37% Elizabeth Dole* 35% Sep 29 Oct 02 Elon U.
New Hampshire Jeanne Shaheen 50% John Sununu* 45% Oct 01 Oct 01 Rasmussen
Virginia Mark Warner 57% Jim Gilmore 31% Sep 29 Oct 01 Mason-Dixon
