Posted on 03/29/2010 5:05:45 PM PDT by speciallybland
Former Senator Lincoln Chafee remains the leader in the race to be Rhode Islands next governor, with State Treasurer Frank Caprio the strongest Democrat in the contest for now.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in Rhode Island shows Chafee, who is running as an independent, earning 39% support to Caprios 28%. Likely Republican nominee John Robitaille picks up 22% of the vote, with 11% more undecided.
Chafee pulls 37% of the vote if state Attorney General Patrick Lynch is the Democrat in the race. Robitaille is in second with 26% support, and Lynch runs third with 22%. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided.

Bush’s favorite. I wonder how he’s helping Chaffee out this time.
Chafee is an airhead. He’s only ahead due to name I.D.
If the Republican in the race runs as a conservative the two liberals should split the vote and allow him to win. There is no reason to give up. Chafee has the name recognition. He is the silver spoon candidate. It shouldn’t be hard to drive up his negatives and take advantage of the economic winds.
Who is more conservative? Chaffee or Caprio??
To bad for Rhode Island. Its looks like they will have at least four more years of being in the doldrums.
Patrick Lynch, sleazebag extraordinaire is scarier than either one of these dimwits!
They currently have an okay Governor.
Too bad Steve Laffey didn’t run.
I thought the AG Lynch would be the rat. ‘General Treasurer” Caprio will beat him in the primary?
