Morning Consult's latest survey of the nation's governors shows that Gina Raimondo's approval/disapproval track has slipped slightly, to 38 percent/55 percent. The poll of registered voters has a six percentage point margin of error.

A new survey of the nation's governors has a troubling finding for Governor Gina Raimondo: her disapproval rating (53 percent) is 12 points higher than her 41 percent approval rating.

Morning Consult said it surveyed more than 66,000 voters in all 50 states from January until early May to develop its results. Five percent of respondents were undecided about Raimondo, and the survey has a margin of error of 5.7 percentage points.

Two polls, released just one day apart, provide slightly different views of Rhode Island's presidential primary. While Donald Trump led both polls among Republicans, one poll showed Democrat Bernie Sanders with a lead, and the other favored Hillary Clinton. 

On Monday, a poll released by Public Policy Polling found Sanders leading Clinton by four points thanks to a boost from Independent voters. But the survey called the Democratic races "toss ups" in both Rhode Island and Connecticut.

Rhode Islanders have long supported Democrat Hillary Clinton. She won the 2008 primary against future President Barack Obama, but are residents ready to vote for her again?

Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump are the preferred presidential candidates of likely Rhode Island voters, according to a newly released poll by Brown University's Taubman Center For American Politics & Policy.

Bernie Sanders topped Clinton by seven points, 48 percent to 41 percent, in an initial poll by Brown that was conducted February 17-20 -- a striking finding considering how Clinton beat Barack Obama by 18 points in Rhode Island's 2008 primary.

A new poll shows that 76 percent of respondents think the state spends too little to maintain roads and bridges. A narrow majority supports Governor Gina Raimondo’s plan for improving infrastructure.
