Dem primary poll:

David Cicilline - 40%
Anthony Gemma - 36%

Also, "the new poll finds 61% of primary voters give Cicilline a negative job approval rating".

Doherty, the Rhode Island State Police's former superintendent, had a double-digit lead over both Democrats in a WPRI 12 poll of 1st District voters conducted in February, even though the district is heavily Democratic.

Great job, Dems.

Cicilline is damaged goods. The Dems would find another candidate if they were smart because of Cecilline's baggage. The Republicans have a real shot to take this seat I think.

The problem is that Gemma is anything but a first rate challenger (as viz. Cicilline not being dead in the primary water.)

And... uh... this is the opening of a "profile" on his own campaign website...

Quote
Through his business career and quest for the RI First Congressional District seat, Anthony Gemma has cultivated a hard-driving, aggressive persona that has sometimes irked media members and political rivals.

Joseph Gemma, dean of Providence College’s junior class, assistant management professor, and the oldest of nine Gemma siblings, understands why some might take that view of his family’s youngest, 17 years his junior. “Sometimes people are confused by him, think they know him through his Facebook postings or tweets, and stop at that level,” he says.

Uh... what?

If Doherty did take this 67% Obama seat, he would very likely easily be beaten by a competent Dem in 2014.  He would be the GOP version of Walt Minnick.

Exactly. Allowing a Republican to get elected to Congress from Rhode Island is inexcusable on the Democrats' part. This is worse than Charles Djou.

Allowing the GOP to take a district that contains Providence is unforgivable for the Democrats.

Yet Hilarious at the same time.

I wonder if this is Winfield's district.

Not quite as bad as that New Orleans district.  Also, the RIGOP is essentially indistinguishable from the RI-Dems.  They should probably label the ballot lines "Irish Mob" and La Cosa Nostra as applicable to confuse the voters less.

Well a Republican did represent the 1st District in RI from 1989-1994. I just looked that up.

Charles Djou was different . That was a 3 way contest.

Is it a fair description? Would you endorse your slumlord for Congress?

It was, but it was a [Inks]ing stupid one, which is my point. Besides, I did say that this was worse.

     Cicilline is garbage, but even Gemma might force the Dems to spend money there in November. Rather embarrassing, for Providence of all places.

Potentially having a Republican in a D+13 district? Pretty sad. What's the record right now? A D+6 district?

Yeah its the Illinois 10th Congressional District that is represented by Robert Dold(R.) That district always voted for Moderate Republicans(John Porter, Mark Kirk and Dold) even though they voted Dem in Presidential Elections. Kirk did have a couple close races too I think. Dold I don't think will win in November because its something like a D+8-9 District now.

Dold is toast.  He only won 51%-49% in the best Republican year since 1894 against a two time loser candidate.  I would bet that he loses by high single digits this time.

Yeah but Seals is/was a tough opponent. Heck, Seals almost beat Kirk once.

Seals only got 47% in two of the best Dem years since the 1970's.  Even Seals would have won the new IL-10 in 2010.
