Anyone has any idea about NY-11 Max Rose chance (Staten Island/south Brooklyn district)

There is still no polling for NY-11 this cycle. There were only 2 polls back in 2018.

My assumption is the house seat will go to the party that wins on the presidential level.

Have anyone heard anything about this race? Or if someone has a different view on this race?

1. Just a hunch by a supporter who is voting for him, but it appears his campaign is stronger this time

than it was two years ago. He is now an incumbent who is better funded, has more media presence, appears more confident, and is running against a weaker opponent. Also, as a personal observation, his district appears a bit less conservative than it was two years ago, or perhaps it's because his supporters appear more visible and vocal. I am hopeful.

I've seen many more Rose's ads than his opponent's online. Do you think the district will vote for Biden or Trump? I still think the vote total will mirror the votes on the presidential level.

3. I think the vote between Trump and Biden will split evenly, favoring Trump slightly.

There are a lot of traditionally conservative white voters in his district. They may, like many New Yorkers, dislike Trump, but will not get themselves to vote for Biden. It has a lot to do with the way politics have been conducted here for years. If Biden gets this district, it would be thanks to the large population of previously agnostic recent immigrants who may decide to become politically active, as well as significant number of young people moving into the Brooklyn part of Rose's district.

49. From the same sourceShorefront News is quoting:

Rose’s politics are decidedly liberal, even if his rhetoric feels spiky and nonpartisan. He is an unapologetic defender of unions (a prerequisite to win on Staten Island), he supports a public health care option (just not the abolishment of private insurance), he believes the eligibility age for Medicare should be dramatically lowered (to somewhere between 50 and 55), and he refuses to accept campaign donations from corporate PACs and lobbyists (the NRA is a bunch of “bandits with blood money”).

It's easy to pick and choose for the most sensational effect.... maybe that's the reason I picked and chose from the same article

56. Certain corners pushing certain candidates in flaming blue districts is way outside the scope of

this thread. And Tulsi is hardly a fitting comparison to Rose. While I agree with you on these issues, I want to keep my comments limited to Rose and his campaign. Rose is running in a district that has been staunchly conservative for generations, and he turned it blue. If you were considering a hypothetical Democratic candidate who is decidedly liberal yet capable of turning a red district blue, an unapologetic defender of unions, a supporter of public health care option, believes the eligibility age for Medicare should be lowered to the age of 50, who refuses to accept campaign donations from corporate PACs and lobbyists, and who would vote to impeach Trump despite his reservations, would you hold his approval of Trump's executive order on antisemitism against him? I wouldn't.

You may object, as I do, to Rose's professed zero allegiance to the Democratic Party, but in this objection, would you overlook his record that strongly aligns with the left wing of the Democratic Party?

Your non-linear responses to my posts threw me off a bit. I got an impression that they had some connection to Rose. If I understand you correctly now, you did not intend to draw parallels between the aforementioned "certain corners" and Rose's campaign, and your criticisms of Rose (some of which I share) are not intended to belittle his accomplishments or his record in the House.

19. The difference is, Like another poster said, he actually votes 97% with Nancy Pelosi.

Another difference is, the roads was crap under Dan Sullivan (the republican that had the seat before Max). I had to call 311 very often and wait a long time to get the potholes fixed. I haven't needed to call 311 since Max took office.

Yes, Max Rose does a lot of political theaters because the district requires him to do it. I don't like it. But if he gets re-elected and my life is better under him, why not?

12. Attacking Democrats is what he does to play up to GOP Staten islanders.

Last time it was Speaker Pelosi, and she set him and her other internal agitators straight when the term began.

Rep. Max Rose Seeks 2nd Term by Targeting Fellow Democrat: De Blasio

The Republican candidate is Nicole Malliotakis, but in a conservative congressional district, Mr. Rose is also happy to run against the mayor.

At just six seconds, the campaign ad has to be among the shortest and most blunt in political history.

“Bill de Blasio is the worst mayor in the history of New York City,” Representative Max Rose says. “That’s the whole ad.”

Mr. Rose, a first-term congressman who represents Staten Island and part of South Brooklyn, is not running against Mr. de Blasio, his fellow Democrat.

But his criticism of the mayor underscores the challenge that Mr. Rose faces in his first re-election bid, a race that is the Republican Party’s only realistic chance for gaining a House seat in New York City in November.

His actual opponent is Nicole Malliotakis, a Republican member of the State Assembly who, by coincidence, challenged Mr. de Blasio unsuccessfully when he ran for re-election in 2017. But in a sense, Mr. Rose is running against both of them.

18. DeBlazio is just one Democrat, not "Democrats".

Part of the job description for any NYC mayor is to be attacked, right, left and center. That's the way it's always been. And let's face it, DeBlazio is far from being a perfect mayor, just like Rose is far from being a perfect congressman. Having said this, however, I have no problem reconciling my full support for both of them.

But I wonder how possible it is for a republican leaning district.

I see it as the same song and dance that Susan Collins and Lisa M do. They pander and act like an independent once in a while, while they will go back to the party line at the end, like Max's reluctant stance on impeachment. You do what is best for the demographic of the district.

He can't rely solely on democratic votes to win. So he has to go against the party line once in a while. People in Staten Island seriously believe in the Socialist, anti-police attack ads. We are attacking him on his pro-police stance, and all of the RW ads are saying he is defunding the police. So he had to take a hard stance on that.

from Europe, whilst slamming China and calling it the Kung Flu, etc etc was xenophobic. Biden never said the ban per se was racist.

The first cases of COVID came in via EUROPE, not China, and Trump's so called China ban wa a joke, as 40,000 people or more still kept coming in.

52. Thanks for the clarification. I never meant it in the same way Trump did.

I clearly think some of Trump's criticism on the matter is racist based. And I think there is at least a portion of talking heads and congress people that gave me the impression that they are making a general point "Trump's travel ban is racist" and I disagree with that. But I always thought Biden or Pelosi's argument is more nuanced and Trump is clearly taking it out of context.

And I definitely think the Chinese ban is more a show than an effective policy. The debacle that rushed many Americans to rush back that created huge crowds at the airport with no testing and contact tracing might have worsen the matter.

He definitely needs more than just the democratic base to win and thus his "come together" message. That's sad because it could mean the district will go Trump again.

That said, I think he started going against some of the party line as soon as he took office. So I didn't think it's particularly different from his previous stance. After all, he ran the "I will work with the other party" message even back in 2018.
