Though the poll has a small sample size and large margin of error, it confirms the results of two Democratic polls released in September, one from Cicilline's campaign and one from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Both mid-September polls showed Cicilline at 46 percent and Doherty in the mid-30s. Cicilline's job approval numbers are still upside-down in the WPRI poll. Thirty-eight percent of respondents said Cicilline was doing an "excellent" or "good" job in Congress, while 55 percent rated him "fair" or "poor." Forty-six percent of voters view Doherty positively (a different measure from Cicilline's job approval), while 22 percent view him unfavorably.
