Rammell poll: Risch 39.5%, LaRocco 33%

Rex Rammell, independent candidate for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Larry Craig, has released further results from a poll he commissioned in late August in the race, in part to dispute a national Rasmussen Reports automated poll on Sept. 9 that showed Republican Jim Risch with 58 percent. Rammell’s poll, asking a head-to-head question about three candidates in the race – Risch, Rammell, and Democrat Larry LaRocco – showed Risch with 39.5 percent, LaRocco with 33 percent, Rammell with 4.2 percent, and 23.3 percent undecided.

The poll then followed up with a question supplying name, age and occupation for each of the three candidates. “LaRocco was identified as a 62-year-old former banker and former congressman, Jim Risch as a 65-year-old trial lawyer and current lieutenant governor, and Rammell as a 47-year-old veterinarian and former elk rancher,” according to the Rammell campaign. “The following numbers were reported: Risch 40%, LaRocco 30.8%, Rammell 10.4%, with 18.8% undecided.” Click below to read Rammell’s full report on his poll results, which include a finding that a plurality of Idahoans are dissatisfied with the two-party system.
