2010 Vermont Governor’s Race: Republican Brian Dubie Leads Five Potential Democratic Opponents

 

Will Republicans continue to hold the governorship in Vermont in the 2010 elections?  The signs look rather good. Republican Lieutenant Governor Brian Dubie is presently leading all five of his potential Democrat candidates for the governors race in the Green Mountain state.

Republican Lieutenant Governor Brian Dubie leads all five of his potential Democratic opponents in the first Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 survey of this year’s race for governor in Vermont.

A telephone survey of likely voters in the state shows Secretary of State Deb Markowitz to be the most competitive Democrat for now. Dubie leads her by seven points, 46% to 39%. He posts a 48% to 35% lead over State Senator Doug Racine, a former lieutenant governor.

The Vermont governors race will determine the successor to popular GOP Governor Jim Douglas, who has opted not to run for reelection. 64% of Vermont’s voters approve of the job Douglas is doing in office, while only 36% disapprove. Brian Dubie is viewed very favorably by 31% of Vermont’s voters and very unfavorably by just 13%.

      Rather remarkable that a state as liberal as VT has a present Rep Gov and it appears will have one after 2010 as well.
