Washington, DC – Today, Club for Growth PAC released poll results that reveal North Dakota voters are ready for someone other than Sen. Heidi Heitkamp to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Highlights from the poll can be found here. The findings certainly make Heitkamp’s reelection chances difficult.
Specifically, the polling revealed:
- According to likely voters, Heitkamp hasn’t accomplished enough and doesn’t deserve reelection. A plurality of North Dakota voters now believe it’s time to elect someone new.
- North Dakota State Treasurer Kelly Schmidt leads Heitkamp on the ballot by four points.
- Heitkamp’s refusal to repeal Obamacare is damaging. Heitkamp possesses a number of vulnerabilities, but casting the deciding vote against Obamacare repeal is especially damaging to her reelection prospects.
The survey was conducted for Club for Growth by WPAi on September 10-11, 2017. The study has a sample size of n=406 likely voters (40% cell phone interviews) and a margin of error equal to ±4.9% in 95 out of 100 cases.
Club for Growth PAC and Club for Growth Action are political arms of the Club for Growth, a 501(c)(4).
