A new poll on the three-way governor's race in Rhode Island shows a very different result than one we published Tuesday, with Democrat Frank Caprio holding a 12-point lead over Republican-turned-independent Lincoln Chafee.

A Rasmussen Reports poll conducted Sept. 16 had Chafee with a statistically-insignificant 33 percent to 30 percent lead over Caprio, with Republican John Robitaille at 23 percent, businessman Ken Block at 5 percent and 9 percent undecided.

But the new poll, conducted Sept. 15-17 by Quest Research for WJAR-10 TV in Providence, has Caprio ahead of Chafee by 36 percent to 24 percent, with 13 percent for Robitaille, 21 percent for Block and 23 percent undecided. The margin of error is 4.7 points. Both surveys sampled likely voters.
Lincoln Chafee, Frank Caprio
The race is for the seat now held by a Republican, Donald Carcieri.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
