New Poll Shows Dino Rossi Trailing Democratic Opponent

Despite Having Run Five Times & Being A Current Elected Official in the District, Dino Rossi Still Fails to Win Against a Generic Democrat

WASHINGTON - In case you missed it, today House Majority PAC released a poll showing Trump RNC delegate Dino Rossi trailing 42% to 43% to a generic Democrat in Washington's 8 Congressional District. Despite having run five times in this district - thus having far higher name ID than any Democrat running - Dino Rossi still fails to outpace any Democratic opposition.

DCCC spokesperson Drew Godinich released the following statement:

'After two decades as a professional politician, Trump delegate and establishment Republican Dino Rossi fails to outperform a generic Democrat. Maybe Dino Rossi will have more luck getting another appointment to public office - perhaps in the Trump Administration that he fought to elect.'

The poll found that Trump's job approval rating was a dismal 40% with 55% disapproving. Paul Ryan's approval in the 8 District was 20%, with a whopping 67% of voters disapproving.
