Rhode Island’s 1
st
Congressional District Polling Results
DATE:
September 18, 2012
 
David Cicilline currently holds a strong, 46-35 lead over Republican Brendan Doherty amonglikely voters in
Rhode Island’s First Congressional D
istrict.
 
Independent candidate David Vogel pulls 8% and 11% are undecided.
 
Cicilline’s strong position is in line with the
d
istrict’s solid preference for Democra
ts.
 
When asked their preference for Congress,
 
53% said they would choose a Democrat, while only 39% say they would prefer aRepublican.
 
This preference has the potential to lead to further gains for Cicilline.
 
 Among voters currently undecided in the head-to-head horserace, 45% say they wouldprefer a Democrat and 18% say they would prefer a Republican.
 
Moreover, 48% are favorable to Democrats in Congress, while only 22% are favorable toRepublicans in Congress.
 
President Obama is extremely well liked in the district and voters are lining up behind him.
 
President Obama is viewed favorably by 58% of voters here
 
He holds a 61%-31% lead over Mitt Romney
 
In the Senate race, Sheldon Whitehouse holds an even larger margin over Barry Hinckley.
 
Whitehouse 64% - Hinckley 27%
 
 At the same time, voters express significant negativity toward Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan,in addition to Republicans on the Hill.
 
52% of voters are unfavorable toward Mitt Romney; 29% are favorable
 
39% of voters are unfavorable toward Paul Ryan; 28% are favorable
 
The strength of these top of ticket Democrats gives Cicilline natural room for expansion asvoters begin to tune in to this race.
 
The negativity toward top Republicans and the four-to-one Democratic registrationadvantage leaves Doherty with no natural constituency with whom to expand his vote.
