North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven (R) leads Sen. Byron Dorgan (D) by double-digits in a hypothetical 2010 Senate race, according to a Zogby International poll of likely voters conducted Nov. 17 through 18.
Though both men are popular in the state, Hoeven tops Dorgan 55 percent to 36 percent, with 9 percent undecided. The margin of error is 4.5 percent.
Hoeven’s margin grows if North Dakota voters are informed that Dorgan supports the Democrat’s health care overhaul legislation — 57 percent to 32 percent for Dorgan.
Just 28 percent of North Dakota voters said they support the health care bill proposed by President Barack Obama. Sixty-two percent oppose it, 48 percent strongly.
Hoeven has yet to declare but I hope he runs so bad. This would be a huge coup for NRSC and continue to pressure Dems
