CD6: New Poll Says Rep. Roscoe Bartlett in Trouble // Generic Democrat Already Tied With GOP 20-Year Incumbent

Congressional news source, The Hill reports on a new poll showing that Rep. Roscoe Bartlett is in trouble:
House Majority PAC, a Democratic -affiliated super-PAC, is touting polls in eight districts that show Republicans there are vulnerable....

The polls were conducted by the Democratic Public Policy Polling....

Bartlett has decided to run for reelection despite his advanced age and Democrats making him a redistricting target. He is tied with an unnamed Democratic candidate in the district, which now stretches from western Maryland to Washington suburbs. But he runs ahead of Republicans generally: While he and the congressional GOP both have 39 percent approval in the district, his disapproval is only 44 percent while theirs is 52 percent. The centrist Republican will have to show he can shake off the rust and run a strong campaign to introduce himself to new voters to hold on here.

The polls were conducted from Jan. 18-23 and had margins of error ranging from plus or minus 3.1 percentage points to plus or minus 4.4 points, depending on the district.

More on the 6th Congressional District race soon!
