PPP is out with a very interesting new poll that suggest that even Idaho isn’t safe for the Republican Party. PPP finds Governor Butch Otter (R) leading wealthy conservative Democrat A.J. Balukoff by only three points, 39% to 36%. Four independent candidates are taking a combined twelve percent of the vote away from what would more than likely be easy Otter votes, including three percent for the famous perennial candidate who legally changed his name to “Pro-Life” a few years back.
Governor Otter’s job approval is a very weak 36%, 49% disapprove of the job he has done. Balukoff (D) has an approval rating of 38%, 32% disapprove of him.
