Chafee is a fairly liberal guy. I would trust him more than most Democrats myself. I wish he was from VT

Why should anyone be whining?

All this shows is that Chafee's presence in this race makes polling difficult, that's why it's all over the place. As a liberal republican, he mucks up the assumptions most pollsters make.

Given the Chafee family pedigree in Rhode Island politics, I imagine he has the edge.
