Carney holds big lead over Urquhart in House race

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

The latest poll numbers show John Carney (D) leading Glen Urquhart (R) 51% to 36% in their race for Delaware’s lone seat in the U.S. House.

The Fairleigh Dickinson/Public Mind poll surveyed 801 likely Delaware voters and has a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.  While Carney holds a wide margin in the statewide poll, Urquhart is running neck and neck in Kent and Sussex Counties, which typically lean more towards Republicans.

The poll shows a very tight race for the treasurer’s office.  Chip Flowers (D) and Colin Bonini (R) are neck and neck, with each getting 38%.  21% of voters surveyed were unsure about who they would vote for in the treasurer’s race.

In the auditor’s race, incumbent Tom Wagner (R) holds a 14 point lead over Richard Korn (D).  Wagner gets support form 46% of those surveyed, while Korn gets just 31%.  And in the Attorney General’s contest, incumbent Beau Biden (D) has  a comfortable lead over independent challenger Doug Cambell.  Biden leads 65% to Campell’s 25%.

The poll also has good news for Governor Jack Markell (D).  57% of those polled approve of the job Markell is doing a good as governor.

You can find the full results of the poll on the Fairleigh Dickinson/Public Mind website.  On Wednesday, Fairleigh Dickinson will release the results of its poll for the U.S. Senate race between Christine O’Donnell (R) and Chris Coons (D).
