Rhode Island is so boring. Their Senator that is up for re-election in 2014 will most likely coast to victory. Democrat Jack Reed is one of the most popular Senators in the country, according to Public Policy Polling. His favorability is 62/32 and he leads by nearly 30 points, in each of the hypothetical matchups Public Policy Polling does.
Rhode Islanders support an assault weapons ban 64-27. 38% of the Republicans favor it. 56% of voters have a negative view of the NRA and they seem to trust Obama more on the guns issue (59-30). Obama’s approval is 59/36 which is fantastic but then again Rhode Island is a blue state. Having said that, 44% of Rhode Island Republicans want to impeach Barack Obama, as opposed to 37% who are opposed to it. There should be a follow up question as to why they feel Obama should be impeached. My assumption is that it’s Fast and Furious related. Or maybe even Benghazi related. But then again, the birther controversy never really went away.
