Talk about a survivor: Jim Douglas, the Republican governor Vermont, has won reelection. Every two years, Douglas has to deal with an overwhelmingly Democratic electorate -- and every two years he wins.
Even more shocking: The Democratic nominee, Gaye Symington, is only mustering 21% of the vote. Independent Anthony Pollina, who scored a series of labor endorsements, is narrowly ahead of Symington.
Perhaps in two years the Democrats will make Polling their nominee?
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
