Poll: Dead Heat in R.I. House Race

Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., holds a razor-thin, one-point lead over Republican challenger Brendan Doherty, according to a new poll.

Cicilline led Doherty, 43 percent to 42 percent, in the survey of 300 likely voters, conducted for WPRI-TV. That is slightly closer than one month ago, when WPRI had Cicilline ahead by six points, though all changes are well within the survey's margin of error of plus-or-minus 5.7 percentage points.

The race has attracted money from both national parties as Doherty, the former state police superintendent, tries to knock off Cicilline, a first term Democrat, in one of the most Democratic seats in the nation to be contested by Republicans.

The WPRI survey showed independent candidate David Vogel with 6 percent support and 8 percent of voters undecided.

The poll was conducted by the Cumberland, R.I., firm Fleming & Associates.
