~ 85 percent of those who said they would vote for Senator Chafee if the election were held today, said the Senator should vote against the Bolton nomination
~ 79 percent of those who are not sure how they will vote in 2006, said the Senator should vote against the Bolton nomination
~ 42.8 percent of those who voted for Senator Chafee in 2000 said they would be less likely to vote for him in 2006 should he vote in favor of the Bolton nomination.
What is amazing is that 4 out of 5 people in Rhode Island oppose the nomination. There is a 4.1% variance in results.
This must be even more disconcerting for Senator Chafee, who is reportedly already 20 points down in polls handicapping the next U.S. Senate race in Rhode Island.
