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 DailyKos.com.

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.
