Yesterday’s Morning Consult poll is bad news for Senator Heidi Heitkamp. The poll shows that half of all North Dakota voters say it’s time for a fresh voice while only 36% of voters think Heitkamp deserves to be reelected.
This can’t come as a total surprise to Senator Heitkamp as the number of North Dakotans wanting a new Senator in office has risen steadily since the start of 2018, as have her disapproval ratings. Instead of enacting the agenda North Dakotans voted for in 2016, Heitkamp chose to vote against tax cuts and play obstructionist politics with her constituents’ wallets. That is certainly not the recipe for a successful re-election bid.
“Yesterday’s poll clearly shows that North Dakotans want a fresh voice in the Senate. Fortunately, North Dakotans have that opportunity come November. -- RNC Spokesperson Patrick McCann
