Poll: Washington Voters Wouldn't Roll Out Welcome Mat For Kucinich


Kucinich has floated the idea of moving out of Ohio to again run to Congress if his district gets the axe next year when new lines are drawn. Washington, which will gain a seat in 2012, has been suggested as a possible landing place, an idea Kucinich's staff seemed to welcome when asked about the congressman's future plans.

"After people found out that Congressman Kucinich's district could be eliminated or substantially altered in congressional redistricting by the Ohio Legislature's Republican majority, Congressman Kucinich received requests from people in twenty states, including Washington State, encouraging him to move and run in their area," a spokesman, Nathan White said in a statement.

The PPP poll was conducted May 12-15 among 1,098 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 3.0%.
