I realized a short while ago that there were two Congressional votes today in North Carolina: the 9th Congressional district, Dan Bishop (GOP) vs, Dan McCready (DNC); and the 3rd Congressional district, Greg Murphy (GOP) vs. Allen Thomas (DNC). The 9th district race has been touted as a barometer for the 2020 elections, especially since it is only happening because the last election results were thrown out due to allegations of election tampering against one of the Republicans involved in the campaign. I was amazed it wasn't on ATS yet, and more amazed that I actually had to search to find the results.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity for the Democrats, doesn't it? An election redo, charges of tampering against the GOP, in a district that is traditionally a close call. Should be an easy win, right?

Nope.

Both GOP candidates won. Murphy beat out Thomas, as expected, by a wide margin. Bishop also beat out McCreary by over 4000 votes, in a race that was supposed to have the difference in the "hundreds of votes" (McCready as quoted on CBS).

As of this OP, Politico is reporting both elections called for the GOP. Bishop vs. McCready at 50.8% to 48.6% with 99.1% of the polls reporting. The 3rd district has Murphy at 61.7% vs. Thomas at 37.5%, with all polls reporting.

I believe we are seeing a forerunner of the 2020 results nationwide. The present policies of the DNC (open borders, maximum socialism, higher taxes, special interests over majority needs, and a slower economy) seem to be too much for the Tarheels, despite recent leftward moves in the state.

(I originally started to post this outside the Political Mud Pit. But then I realized how much it might irritate some of the more progressive members and feel they should be able to express themselves in the only way that they apparently know how. You're welcome.)

If nothing else it shows more poll manipulation.

Thanks for the news.

The pendulum is swinging hard, 2016 was it sweeping over, and 2020 will only see it swinging further.

Honestly, while I do follow this nonsense, it's going to be comedic gold for people like me just in it for the lols.

The 2016 meltdown caught me by surprise, in 2020? I'm going to have atleast 4 screens streaming on election night so I don't miss any of the epic meltdowns.

I think most people already either know or suspect the polls are not correct anymore. Even those who claim otherwise.

A better indication(to me now and in 2016) is rally turnout for candidates and the sitting potus.

Those......speak volumes.....

Too many "pollsters" seem to forget most of us in this country like to mind our own damn business. The crazy nutjobs, left or right, are the ones who usually end up on the news or taking polls and ruin it for the rest of us.

I definitely agree. Rally turnout shows not only intent, but willingness to participate. So far, as in 2016, I do believe our illustrious if egotistical President holds a wide lead in that respect.

McCready campaigned TWICE as long (27 months) and spent $3M more than Bishop...and STILL lost.

They are silent because the Dems were expecting to win the Bishop race so had already framed the same old tired "this is an indicator that Trump will lose in 2020" meme.

Trump was actually asked about the race from a reporter this week and what he thought about Bishop losing being an indicator.

They try to wag the dog... they are good at it, the media.

Until Trump.

So of course now the media is silent... the narrative has been broken once again and they now have a backstory with no traction or results.

A GOP win in NC isn’t surprising at all.
Hard to say what, if anything, it may foretell.
The subject line of the OP seems a bit misleading, though; a quick check on Google News show all the usual coverage: Fox, CNN, Vox, WaPo, etc.

That silence you hear is just like Pripyat amusement park, that was scheduled to open on May 1, 1986. A celebration of Soviet Union achievement, unfortunately silenced April 26, 1986 by a small miscalculation during a safety test at a power plant named Chernobyl.

Reminds me of the Georgia SE that Dems sunk crazy Hollywood $$ into and lost.

Coincidence, as I never played them. But I always remember that park as a silent and spooky place ever since the first “urban explorers” put pics and vids on the internet.

Just think...

Obama/Biden Admin are about to be exposed as SCUM, by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

A Dementia patient, or a Fake Indian, are the best Democrats can come up with to challenge President Trump in 2020.

President Trump could not do another rally, and still win the White House, Senate, House on 11/3/2020...WITH EASE.

It was supposed to be turning blue. The 9th district is one of the toss-up districts historically.

I guess not so much?
