Taegan Goddard points to the new NBC/WSJ poll.

The poll contains this interesting finding: The GOP has a HUGE generic-ballot edge in the South (52%-31%), but it doesn’t lead anywhere else. In the Northeast, Dems have a 55%-30% edge; in the Midwest, they lead 49%-38%; and in the West, it’s 44%-43%. Yet do keep this caveat in mind: Many of the congressional districts Republicans are targeting outside of the South resemble some of those Southern districts they’re hoping to win back in November — where you have whiter and older voters. Think Stephanie Herseth’s seat in South Dakota; Tim Walz’ seat in Minnesota; Leonard Boswell’s seat in Iowa; and Ike Skelton’s in Missouri.
