A new Lake Research (D) statewide survey of 500 likely voters in Oregon (conducted 7/7 through 7/11 for Steve Novick) finds:
- Republican Sen. Gordon Smith leads Novick (50% to 27%) in a statewide general election match-up for U.S. Senate.
- 59% have a favorable opinion of Smith; 25% have an unfavorable opinion.
- 32% would vote to re-elect Smith, 34% would consider someone else, and 19% would vote to replace him.
