Utah pollster Dan Jones & Associates just released new survey data in three of the state’s four congressional districts. Republican Representatives Rob Bishop and John Curtis are posting big re-election leads, but Salt Lake City Congressman Chris Stewart is facing a more competitive opponent. He leads Democratic college professor Shireen Ghorbani by eleven points, 45-34%.
The top competitive seat in the state, the south Salt Lake City suburban district that two-term Congresswoman Mia Love represents, is much closer. Dan Jones did not poll this district because so many surveys have been recently released, four alone in August and September, including a pair from the campaigns themselves. Representative Love leads in all, with margins between two and nine percentage points. Not surprisingly, the two that find the closest result and the one showing the most favorable incumbent outcome are from the internal campaign data. Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams is the Democratic nominee opposing Ms. Love.
