With so many issues and concerns on voters’ minds, it’s shaping up to be a big election year in Rhode Island. Now, 12 News is proud to partner again with Roger Williams University to deliver a series of surveys that will reveal the leaders in key races and what voters care about most.

The polls will be conducted by Rhode Island-based Fleming & Associates, which has been conducting research for WPRI 12 since 1984.

An experienced team of 12 News journalists led by Target 12 Chief Investigative Reporter Tim White and 12 News Politics Editor Ted Nesi will provide in-depth reporting and analysis on the candidates and the issues in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts leading up to the September primary and the November election.

Our first poll released on May 17 gave us insight into the Democratic primaries for Rhode Island governor and the hotly contested 2nd Congressional seat being vacated by Jim Langevin.


Tonight on 12 News at 5 – we’ll take a look at how many Democratic primary voters support President Joe Biden running for reelection.
