BREAKING: Brown Poll Shakes Up Political Race

Friday, August 06, 2010

 

Independent Lincoln Chafee and Democrat Frank Caprio are tied in the race for governor, according to a Brown University survey of voters released this morning.

The poll found 27.9 percent of voters supporting Caprio versus 26.5 percent for Chafee. The numbers are with the margin of error, a statistical dead heat. More than 30 percent of the voters were undecided, Republican John Robitaille had 7 percent support and Victor Moffitt had 2 percent. Moderate Party candidate Ken Block came in at 3 percent.

It is the first survey taken after Caprio's Democratic primary opponent, Patrick Lynch, dropped out of the race. The results are consistent with two Rasmussen Reports polls released earlier this summer, which showed Caprio and Chafee neck and neck, although it is the first time Caprio has had actually had a lead over his lead opponent (click here and here for the previous polls). The Brown poll also had the two Republicans earning less support than they had in previous surveys.

Cicilline Has Lead in Congressional Race

The poll also showed Providence Mayor David Cicilline leading in the race replace Patrick Kennedy in the First District seat in Congress, with 32 percent support. He was followed by 15 percent for Bill Lynch, 11 percent Anthony Gemma, and 5 percent for David Segal.

In the Second District race, incumbent Jim Langevin had a wider lead over his Democratic primary opponents. If the primary were held today, Langevin would win with 55 percent of the vote, leaving Betsy Dennigan with 12 percent and Ernest Greco with one percent.
