CD 48 Appears to be Tightest Congressional Race in California

Rohrabacher and Rouda Stand Tied

By Sean Brown, November 6, 2018 4:57 pm

It is no secret California’s 48th Congressional District has been tight, but at this point it appears to be the closest in the state.

According to the latest poll, Republican Incumbent Dana Rohrabacher is tied with Democratic challenger Harley Rouda. As the line stands, they are both measured with 47 percent of the vote.

“The race has sparked intense national interest: No national Republican is better known as an ally of President Trump and apparent fan of Russian President Vladimir Putin than Dana Rohrabacher, who appears to be paying the price of those affiliations in the early absentee vote.”

This race is also tied in the Berkeley polling and is at a one-point Rouda advantage in the NYT Upshot polling. It could be weeks before we know the final result here.

Election Day voters and Monday and Tuesday’s mail-in-ballots were not included in the poll. 686 total people were surveyed.
