Poll by Chafee shows him atop race for governor
Despite his less than stellar fundraising performance in the last quarter, former U.S. Sen. Lincoln Chafee says his exploratory campaign for governor is alive and well after a major cost-cutting move, and he has poll results that show him with a credible shot of winning a three-way race.

To help quell rumors he is not long for the race, Chafee went so far as to make public the results of a telephone survey of 403 likely voters conducted for his campaign by Alpha Research Associates in late October that showed where he would place in a three-way race with newly emerged Republican candidate Rory Smith and either one of the leading Democratic contenders if the election were held today.

Among the findings of the Oct. 26-29 poll:

In a general election race between Chafee, Smith and Gen. Treasurer Frank Caprio, Chafee would draw 36 percent, Caprio 34 percent and Smith 8 percent, with a majority of those who chose no side saying they did not yet know.

In a race between Chafee, Smith and Atty. Gen. Patrick C. Lynch, Chafee led the attorney general 37 percent to 24 percent, with Smith drawing 15 percent, and the balance undecided. The poll carries a 4.9 percent margin for error.

1. That's cool. He's at least as good a man as most Dems.

Probably the first politician to ever say the day after an election he was glad he lost his seat. (Because it helped Dems take over the Senate.)
