New CA-26 Poll Shows Most Voters Don’t Believe Elton Gallegly Deserves Reelection

October 27, 2011

The House Majority PAC today released a new Public Policy Polling (PPP) poll that shows Representative Elton Gallegly in serious jeopardy of losing reelection.

In California’s newly redrawn 26th Congressional District, only 42% of voters would like to reelect Elton Gallegly, while 48% would prefer someone else. Just 40% have a favorable opinion of the Republicans in Congress, with 47% holding a negative one.

“Republican incumbents such as Elton Gallegly running in swing districts are in serious trouble and Republican control of the House is in serious jeopardy,” said Alixandria Lapp, Executive Director of the House Majority PAC.  “Come next November, California voters will hold Gallegly and House Republicans accountable for failing to fight for middle class families.”

In total, the House Majority PAC released 12 polls in 12 targeted Republican House districts in the states of Arkansas, California, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Each of the House districts polled has completed the redistricting process. These post-redistricting polls demonstrate that Democrats will have a slew of opportunities as we seek to pick up 25 seats and win back the House including against Republicans such as Gallegly who previously had safe districts.

Public Policy Polling conducted this survey on behalf of House Majority PAC between October 19th and 23rd. In CA-26 600 registered voters were interviewed with a margin of error of +/-4.0%. To learn more, visit the House Majority PAC website.
