New Poll Shows Huffman Prospects Good To Unseat Wyden In November

Tigard, Ore. – A recent survey of Oregon voters reveals that Senator Ron Wyden is vulnerable to a challenge from Republican candidate Jim Huffman.  Here are key findings from the survey.

–  A GOP candidate for U.S. Senator is favored by 37%, while a Democrat is favored by 36%, with the remaining 28% undecided.  This is despite an 11-point Democrat edge over Republicans in voter registration.

–  Just 44% believe Ron Wyden deserves reelection today, while 45% prefer a new person and 11% are unsure if they favor Wyden’s reelection.

–  After hearing a series of statements about the candidates’ backgrounds and views, Huffman moves into a 47-38% lead over Wyden.

The reelection of a long-term Democrat incumbent in Oregon is not a foregone conclusion – Oregon voters mirror national voter attitudes on a variety of key issues.

–  Oregonians are pessimistic about the direction of the country and looking for change; 59% believe the country is on the wrong track, while only 29% believe things are generally headed in the right direction.

–  President Barack Obama suffers from a negative image in the state; 45% approve and 50% disapprove of his performance.

–  A plurality of Oregon voters support repeal of the Obama health care legislation (45-40%) and six-in-ten voters support Arizona’s immigration law (60-34%).

Wyden is vulnerable today not only because he is an incumbent U.S. Senator in an election year where many voters are demanding a change in congressional leadership, but also because his voting history is at odds with Oregonians on a variety of issues, including federal spending and the deficit, Cap and Trade, health care reform, handling terrorists and illegal immigrants.  Huffman is in a position to retire Senator Wyden because his views on these issues are more in-line with the mainstream of the Oregon electorate.

The survey was conducted for Huffman for Senate on July 9-10, 2010 among a representative sample of 500 likely voters in Oregon.  The potential sampling error is plus or minus 4% at the 95% confidence level.
