In May, former George state House Democratic Leader Stacey Abrams became the first black woman to receive a gubernatorial nomination, while former Marine pilot Amy McGrath won her primary race for a Kentucky House seat over an mayor backed by national Democrats. 

Republicans, meanwhile, have seen a surge in the number of women running in House races: 103 this cycle, compared to only 48 in 2016.

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll was conducted on June 1-4, among 900 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.
