Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-Bozeman) won a 2017 special election to succeed then-Rep. Ryan Zinke (R) after the latter man was appointed as Interior Secretary. Now a Benenson Strategy Group (9/6-16; 950 MT likely voters) finds the new Congressman’s re-election approaching the toss-up realm. Their new poll gives Gianforte only a 46-45% edge over former state Rep. Kathleen Williams (D). But, the poll asks several push questions about healthcare, all using Democratic arguments, so the ballot test result is likely skewed. Still, this is another campaign that should be considered in play regardless of the accuracy factor in this particular survey.
