ARIZONA SPECIAL HOUSE ELECTION WILL BE TIGHT ACCORDING TO NEW POLL

A new poll published by Emerson College on Monday says that a special House election in Arizona next week will be tight.

The poll has Democratic candidate Hiral Tipirneni in a “statistical dead heat” with Republican Debbie Lesko for Arizona’s 8th Congressional District. Tipirneni had a slight lead, 46 percent to 45 percent. The Emerson poll is a swing from previous polling. A poll last week by OH Predictive Insights had Lesko up 10 percent.

This is a solid repub district but Franks (the incumbent) and Lesko (the repub nominee) both have ethical issues. Plus, Democrat Hiral Tipirneni is a likable, smart new face.

3. It would be as heartening as Lamb winning

From what I've seen I really like Tipirneni. A decent, intelligent, talented woman. The opposite of Franks and Lesko.

6. If Tipirneni was polling in 52-53% range then the election might be winnable, but statisticall, with

a tied race and 9% undecided, it usually does not break for the "challenger" as Tipirneni is in this case, but still, this race may be close even with a loss it gotta send fear to the core of the GOP...

7. Wondering what that is based on

Since there isn't an incumbent there isn't a challenger, even though it's a repub district and even if true, what statistical evidence is there that a close race breaks against the challenger? The break in this race based on the recent polls are for Tipirneni.

I don't know whether she can win or not, or if this poll means she will, but I've been involved in politics for a long time and never heard of what you say.
