Rhode Island State Survey, June 2005

A statewide survey of 470 Rhode Island voters conducted June 25-27, 2005 finds that former Rhode Island Attorney General Sheldon Whitehouse would give incumbent Lincoln Chafee a competitive run in a U.S. Senate race.  Additionally, incumbent Gov. Donald Carcieri leads Lt. Gov. Charles Fogarty in the governor’s race.  The poll also found respondents support embryonic stem cell research, medical marijuana and extension of pension plan to judges, state police and prison guards; they oppose union for child-care workers.
