Many eyes will be on New Hampshire in November’s crucial midterm elections.

An 8 News Now/Emerson College Polling/The Hill survey found that races for Nevada’s Senate seat and governor’s mansion are in a dead heat, with Republicans in a strong position in both races.

The poll found that incumbent Democrat Sen. Catherine Cortez Mastro is in serious jeopardy of losing the seat.

Republican candidate Adam Laxalt received 42 percent in the survey while 41 percent of voters said they supported Cortez Masto. Eleven percent said they were undecided and four percent said they planned to vote for someone else.

The race for Nevada’s governor’s mansion is also nearly a tie.

The survey found that “forty percent of likely voters saying they planned to vote for Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) and Republican nominee Joe Lombardo, respectively. Twelve percent said they were undecided and four percent said they planned on voting for another candidate. Like Cortez Masto, a majority of voters said they expected Sisolak to win reelection. Fifty-two percent predicted Sisolak would win, while 48 percent said the same about Lombardo,” The Hill reported.

The report added:

And like the Senate race, the latest poll shows Lombardo making gains. The July poll showed Sisolak receiving 44 percent support, while 40 percent said they would vote for Lombardo. The lead was within the poll’s margin of error.

The state is also home to a number of highly contested House races, including in the 1st, 3rd, and 4th congressional districts. Tuesday’s poll showed Republicans leading Democrats on the generic ballot 46 percent to 43 percent.

President Joe Biden may suffer the same fate as his predecessor if a group of conservative Republicans in the House get their way.

Should the party retake control of the chamber following the November midterms, they will move to impeach Biden for a number of issues, according to The Hill.

“A number of rank-and-file conservatives have already introduced impeachment articles in the current Congress against the president,” the outlet reported Tuesday. “They accuse Biden of committing ‘high crimes’ in his approach to a range of issues touching on border enforcement, the coronavirus pandemic, and the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.”

“At least eight resolutions to impeach Biden have been offered since he took office: Three related to his handling of the migrant surge at the southern border; three targeting his management of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan last year; one denouncing the eviction moratorium designed to help renters during the pandemic; and still another connected to the overseas business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden,” The Hill continued.

The report added:

Those resolutions never had a chance of seeing the light of day, with Democrats holding a narrow control of the lower chamber. But with Republicans widely expected to win the House majority in the midterms, many of those same conservatives want to tap their new potential powers to oust a president they deem unfit. Some would like to make it a first order of business.

“I have consistently said President Biden should be impeached for intentionally opening our border and making Americans less safe,” Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.), said, according to The Hill. “Congress has a duty to hold the President accountable for this and any other failures of his Constitutional responsibilities, so a new Republican majority must be prepared to aggressively conduct oversight on day one.”
