Another poll shows Chafee ahead

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Another poll shows Independent candidate Lincoln Chafee with a lead in the governor's race.

The Channel 12 survey of 500 likely voters gives Chafee 33 percent, while Democrat Frank Caprio and Republican John Robitaille are tied with 26 percent. Four percent of respondents supported Moderate Party candidate Ken Block.

The poll was conducted between late last week and early this week. A recent Channel 10 poll also showed Chafee in the lead and Robitaille and Caprio in a statistical dead heat.
