Statewide Poll: Raimondo and Taveras Tied in Gubernatorial Democratic Primary

April 10, 2014

A new statewide public opinion survey conducted by the Taubman Center for Public Policy at Brown University finds that State Treasurer Gina Raimondo and Providence Mayor Angel Taveras are currently in a statistical tie for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. However, one-third of likely Democratic voters are undecided five months before the Democratic primary. The survey shows that Taveras has a lead among voters with union membership but finds no significant preference among women voters between the two top Democratic candidates.
