According to Public Policy Polling survey released April 28, 40% of likely voters support Democratic challenger Larry Kissell while only 32% support incumbant Republican Robin Hayes. When undecided voters are factored, Kissell maintains a lead of 43% to 35% over Hayes.
When asked if they want to re-elect their Congressman, a mere 28% of those surveyed said yes while 48% said they would vote for someone new. According to Dean Debnam of Public Policy Polling, 'vote-to-re elect' numbers less than 50% are a sign of vulnerability.
