A new NBC North Dakota News/Strategic Research Associates survey (released 10/1; 650 ND likely voters) finds at-large Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-Bismarck) now taking a ten-point, 51-41%, lead over Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D). The principle reason for the larger lead is the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination. According to this research, North Dakota voters support the judicial nominee by a 60-27% count. This puts Sen. Heitkamp in an even more difficult position as the confirmation vote nears. Currently, it appears the Senate leaders plan to hold the Kavanaugh floor vote on Friday.
