The Washington Examiner reports:
A new poll shows Republican challenger Rep. Kevin Cramer leading Sen. Heidi Heitkamp by a 10-point margin, with North Dakotans overwhelmingly in favor of confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Losing a race in North Dakota would make it significantly more difficult for Democrats to retake the Senate.
The poll, from Mason Dixon and North Dakota’s NBC affiliate, shows Cramer opening up a 51 percent to 41 percent lead over the Democratic incumbent.
The poll also finds North Dakotans support the confirmation of Kavanaugh by a 60 percent to 27 percent margin. Furthermore, the survey found that at 21 percent, more people rated Kavanaugh as their top concern than any other single issue.
A poll taken at this time six years ago also showed Heitkamp down by ten points, but obviously she prevailed.
Cramer (R) 51, Heitkamp (D) 41 — #NDSEN (NBC North Dakota/SRA)
61% support Kavanaugh, 27% oppose.
If Rs win in North Dakota, Dems would need to win in TENNESSEE or TEXAS to have any chance of retaking the Senate.https://t.co/v4UwZ7mKCK

I would also like to see these so called internals both camps talk about that claim Heitkamp is down. Youd think if cramer internals show him up they would have released them a long time ago. pic.twitter.com/lqUgipUudx

RELATED: Cramer last appeared on JMG in April when he compared voting against Trump to cheating on one’s wife. Last year he mocked female Democrats for wearing white pantsuits to a Trump speech. Cramer said, “There is a disease associated with the notion that a bunch of women would wear bad-looking white pantsuits in solidarity with Hillary Clinton to celebrate her loss. You cannot get that weird.” Cramer basically opposes civil rights for everybody except white Christian men and is known to quote scripture in his rants against food stamps.
