The poll conducted for KATU News in Portland found that though 55 percent of the people polled would like a new Governor -- in a match up with Richardson, Kitzhaber got 48 percent compared to Richardson's 35 percent.

 

Jason Williams with the Taxpayer Association of Oregon PAC, thinks these numbers are encouraging for the Republicans.

 

He says the last 100 days have been tough on the Governor.

 

"You had closing the Cover Oregon website and moving to the federal website.  In May we were one of the top food stamp states in the country and our vetearns have long wait times at the VA.  We also have the lowest labor participation rate on record.  And this is starting to show up in polling and it's killing Kitzhaber and  Dennis Richardson has a great chance to win."

 

The poll also looked at the Jeff Merkley-Monica Wehby Senate race.

 

Merkley had the support of 50 percent of likely voters compared to Wehby's 32 percent.
