November may be months away but a new poll conducted by Clarity Campaign Labs on behalf of Idaho Voices for Change Now shows a tightening race for Governor. In a red state like Idaho, Paulette Jordan may face an uphill battle but the race is far from decided. Studies have shown that women do not take their constitutional right to vote for granted and that we tend to vote more than men. For those of you who are tired of living in a state that does not support women, it is time to stand up and support a candidate that has a vision for putting our beliefs into action. Even the poll’s author made it clear that women have an important role in this year’s governor’s race:
“In a right-leaning state like Idaho, it’s clear that voters are considering a new approach to leadership and Paulette Jordan has plenty of room for growth especially among women, young people, and Independent voters.”
Idaho voters are currently split on their vote for Governor with 38% expressing support for Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, 28% supporting former State Representative Paulette Jordan, 7% supporting third-party candidates, and 26% are undecided. The poll’s author indicates that it is quite a shift for a state that is currently 51.5% registered Republicans and only 11.5% registered Democrats. Across Idaho, independent voters make up 35.7% of Idaho registered voters and Jordan is leading Little 43% to 20% with these voters. These numbers show that Paulette Jordan is gaining support across the aisle and that people are tired of having the same people in Boise leading our state.
