What the Heck…Here’s Some Poll Numbers
The ProJo has a story about the latest Rasmussen poll that offers a snapshot of where we stand in the races for Governor and U.S. Senate 7 weeks out from the General Election (actually 8 weeks, the poll was taken last week).
Carcieri (R) – 47%
Fogarty (D) – 45%
Whitehouse (D) – 51%
Chafee (R) – 43%
Note: The sample was 500 likely voters taken a day after the primaries and has a margin of error of +/- 4.5%.
Editorial note: How likely are “likely” voters to vote in an off-year election? With regards to the Senate race: how seriously to take numbers gathered a day after one of the most negative and contested primaries in recent memory?
