Raimondo Favored for Rhode Island Governor

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Rhode Island finds Gina Raimondo (D) is the early favorite to win the 2014 governor's race.

The poll shows Raimondo would win anywhere from 32% to 46% of the vote depending on which hypothetical opponents she faces. She is the only candidate to crack 40% support in any of 10 ballot tests.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee (I) "faces an unsurprisingly uphill battle to win a second term, with more than half of voters saying they don't want him to run again. His strongest shot at re-election comes if he runs as a Democrat: running under the party banner, Chafee starts out trailing Republicans Doherty and Fung by just four points."
