Who is More Polarizing? Chafee or DePetro
- 718 vote - WPRO's John DePetro
- 544 vote - Governor Lincoln Chafee
According to Brown University's Taubman Center's polling data, Lincoln Chafee scores just a 23% approval rating from Rhode Islanders. The decay of Chafee's approval rating is one of the biggest drops in RI political history. In 2004, 56% of Rhode Islanders approved of Chafee's performance in office - when he was a U.S. Senator.
Chafee has taken hits for his argument to save the life of a murderer from the death penalty, argued for illegal immigrants to receive drivers licenses, and refused to call a Christmas tree a Christmas tree (until this year, when Chafee reversed himself).
Tuesday is D-Day for DePetro, he is scheduled to return to the airwaves from "vacation." Chafee has announced he will not run for re-election.
Who is the more polarizing? Governor Lincoln Chafee or talk show host John DePetro.
