(CNN) – The results from the latest poll of the Rhode Island gubernatorial race may have Democratic candidate Frank Caprio looking for somewhere to shove it.
According to a new survey from NBC10/Quest Research, Caprio now finds himself in third place in the contested battle to run the nation's smallest state at 25 percent, 3 points behind Republican John Robitaille and trailing independent candidate Lincoln Chafee by 10 points.
That's a 12-point drop for Caprio from a similar poll taken earlier this month when he was in the lead with 37 percent.
The poll comes four days after President Obama made a campaign swing through Rhode Island and notably refrained from endorsing the Democratic gubernatorial candidate there, Frank Caprio. In response, Caprio made national headlines when he told a radio station that the president can "take his endorsement and really shove it."
But Obama has not endorsed Chafee, a former Republican senator and friend of the president, either and while Caprio was invited to attend events with the president Monday (an offer he refused), Chafee was not.
The most recent poll surveyed 523 likely voters and has a sampling error of 4 percent.
Is Frank Caprio the dumbest person in America?
Good! If he wants to act like a petulant child, then he can go back home and leave the governing to people of a higher maturity level. While I'm a strong supporter of Democratic ideals, I have no patience for childishness.
I still agree with Caprio; shove it!
If he had been respectfull may be the president would have said nice things about him, if not outright endorse him. Your language shows the kind of governor you would be – A BULLY!
The Rent is Too Damn High. LOL!
The shove it comment was not a smart display of temperment for a senatorial candidate. The president is not oblogated to endorse his party's nominee. In fact when the race is b/w a dem and an independent likely to caucus with dems he should pick the candidate closest to his own positions, which is probably chafee. It was thus a favor to Caprio that he didn't endorse chafee.
I guess you should learn a tad bit of etiquette on how to address our President...hope you find a place to shove the new polls...adios...
Very deserving, For insulting the president of The US of A.
Caprio isn't too bright...telling Obama to 'shove it'. Doesn't he know Obama's head is in the way?
You don't talk $#!+ about the President of the United States.
A new generation of Americans elected this man and the old days of complete disrespect for a man that isn't caucasian are over. Yes, there are still some backward folks out there that thought this "shove it" comment was worthy of snickers ... but we see who is laugh now ... don't we?
Caprio, you are going down just like that uncoth thug from New York ... Paladino.
We have enough problems in RI without Caprio's hissy fits. It would seem to me that given the state of the state, that he would want to put his best foot forward at all cost, be a man of the people, etc. Unfortunately, he has left voters feeling like well, if he got his nose so bent out of shape over an endorsement he didn't even seek, how is he going to handle the strains of governing and the mood of the people fed up with a state on a consistent path to nowhere?
nothing like being push under the bus by the president...this should be a warning to all you yellow dogs...
From a person who supports the president and his right to say,"shove it to yu back!' You show no class and a pain to the Democratic Party. The polls show that too!
I am shamed presdient obama that he have too bad his polls so why biden and obama are trouble blamed to christine donnell
I want to be vote her senate than coon
Good for the people of RI. Don't elect leaders that act like children. We have far too many of his type of politician already.
Boy now you have keep that you can’t shove it what you said
Of badmouths and loudmouths the country has a large stock, we don't need another one. And certainly so does not RI!!!
It just goes to show you despite what the trashy illiterate teabaggers say MOST people STILL don't appreciate DISrespect. Apparently, this orphan never learned that. If I were one of the residents in RI, I would make sure this man NEVER spends ANY time in any position of authority. Thank you to ALL the smart, intelligent people of RI who want their state to be known for it's integrity and not some loud mouth. Just look at how low the people of Alaska hold their faces now. Again, I say thank-you.
When you tell the sitting head of your party to "shove it" over an endorsement he never received to shove, what does he expect? Had he kept his trap shut, no one would have made it a big deal. Instead, he brought attention to the issue, insulted the leader of the country and made people wonder why he did not get the endorsement.
If this man lived in my state, he would have lost my vote as well.
I`ll betcha` Frank Caprio wish`es he had the chance to ask the prez` to let him perform the opposite on him right about now . lol.....
Frank Caprio is an idiot and very rude. President Obama must have had a very good reason for not endorsing him. Given his standing in the polls, I think that Mr. Caprio should take his candidacy and "shove it" where the sun does not shine.
Hmmmmm, if there is any validity to this report, the rethugliban and their cheerleaders in the "librul" media are in for a really, really rude surprise on Tuesday. This latest poll seems to indicate they're really, really wrong in their reports of a rethugliban tsunami. What concerns me is when they get their backsides handed to them on Tuesday they're all going to lose their minds, and they're going to carry out their veiled and not so veiled threats to "take back THEIR" country using the second amendment and any other means they feel are necessary.
What an idiot Caprio is. As a Democrat I would support Chafee. He is a truly honorable and decent man. A rarity in either party.
Not surprised - with manners like that Caprio belongs in the Tea Party.
