In their most desperate move to date, Heidi Heitkamp’s North Dakota Democrat Party released selective internal poll numbers so they could claim they aren’t headed to defeat. Some key points:
- Their released poll began in mid-September.
- Their released poll only covered three cities (Fargo, West Fargo, Grand Forks)
- Their released poll is only sampled to include 45% of North Dakota’s voting population.
- Their released poll’s self-proclaimed hope is to prove this race is still a “toss-up,” despite how leading election forecasters see it.
“On top of their constant lies and manufactured controversy, this poll is another example of North Dakota Democrats living in an alternate reality,” said North Dakota Republican Party Communications Director Jake Wilkins. “Heidi Heitkamp’s record on sanctuary cities, DAPL, and tax cuts prove she’s out-of-touch, making her the most vulnerable Senator in the country. Democrats are clearly unable or unwilling to accept that voters in North Dakota want a Senator who votes like they’re from North Dakota and Heidi Heitkamp has failed to do that.”
