SurveyUSA poll of ID registered voters: 55 percent say go, 34 percent say stay…

A SurveyUSA poll of 475 Idaho registered voters familiar with the recent news about Sen. Larry Craig's arrest turned up these results on Tuesday:

-55 percent said Craig should resign,
-34 percent said he should remain in office,
-11 percent said they weren't sure.

When asked if they approve of the job Craig's doing, the numbers were similar, although disapproval edged up to 58 percent.

The poll also looked at Idahoans' perceptions of former congressman Larry Larocco, with results suggesting that voters are largely neutral on him: 22 percent favorable, 21 percent unfavorable and a whopping 57 percent either neutral or having no opinion.
