SLEEPER RACE? Republican George Logan Now Leading House Race In Blue Connecticut

One House race that has not gotten much attention this year is the 5th District in Connecticut, but that might change soon.

Connecticut is a very blue state, but a Republican candidate named George Logan is now leading here.

A Republican winning in Connecticut would definitely be a sign of a red wave.

The Connecticut Mirror reports:

New poll gives GOP challenger George Logan slight edge over Jahana Hayes in 5th District

Republican George Logan has a one-point lead over U.S. Rep. Jahana Hayes, D-5th District, in the first public poll in Connecticut’s nationally watched congressional contest.

The poll released Thursday by WTNH/The Hill/Emerson College brands the race a toss up, validating national Republican spending in a blue-state district as the GOP tries to claw back control of Congress.

Logan had a 48% to 47% lead, with 4% undecided, in a survey of 500 likely voters conducted from Oct. 19 to 21. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.

“There is a stark gender divide among 5th District voters: 55% of women plan to vote to re-elect Hayes whereas 57% of men plan to vote for Logan,” said Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling. “In addition, Logan is winning independent votes 53% to 38%.”

That last part about independents is key.

This guy can win.

If Logan wins early in the night, that could be a sign of what’s to come in other places.
