Otter Poll Lead Drops To 17 Percent

Incumbent Republican C.L. “Butch” Otter still holds a sizable lead over his Democratic opponent Keith Allred in Idaho's race for governor. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Otter picking up 53% support, while Allred earns the vote from 36%. Just four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. In May, Otter led 54% to 32%/Rasmussen Reports. More here.

Question: Does Allred have enough time to truly make a run at Otter in a state that hasn't elected a Democratic governor in 20 years?
