North Dakota: Poll Shows Dorgan Would Win Re-Election

Posted February 13, 2009 at 5:56pm

Sen. Byron Dorgan (D) appears to be well-positioned for re-election in 2010, according to recent poll results sponsored by the liberal Web site

The survey found Dorgan would defeat Gov. John Hoeven (R), 57 percent to 35 percent, in a hypothetical matchup. Hoeven has yet to publicly express interest in running for Senate, but he would be Republicans’ best candidate to challenge the three-term Senator.

The poll of 600 likely North Dakota voters was done by Research 2000 on Feb. 9-11 and had a margin of error of 4 points.
