WCAX poll results in the gubernatorial race are in:
Douglas: 47 percent
Symington: 24 percent
Pollina: 23 percent
Other/undecided: 4 percent
What that means:
- Pollina is right on Symington's tail. Her support slipped from 33 percent in WCAX's poll of one month ago. Pollina climbed 16 percent since that poll.
- Douglas doesn't have 50 percent, which means the Legislature could decide this thing.
- Pollina's showing explains why Douglas has turned up the heat against Pollina.
The poll also showed a 50 percent favorability rating for Douglas, with 42 percent calling him unfavorable.
Symington had a 34 percent favorability; 45 percent unfavorable; 21 no opinion.
Pollina: 45 percent favorable; 35 percent unfavorable; 20 percent no opinion. Those favorability numbers might also explain Douglas' desire to go after him.
Keep this in mind, however. Polls in 2002 showed Doug Racine would win the governor's race.
