Poll shows most Idahoans oppose Craig's decision

October 11, 2007 

A majority of Idahoans oppose Sen. Larry Craig's decision to stay in the Senate while he fights a conviction stemming from a bathroom sex sting, according to an Idaho pollster.

The poll found that 51 percent of Idahoans oppose Craig's decision, with 21 percent supporting Craig's decision. It also found that 22 percent of Idahoans are undecided about Craig's decision while 6 percent were unaware of the situation.

The poll was sponsored by KIVI Channel 6 and conducted by Greg Smith, a former regional director for Craig. Smith now runs Eagle-based consulting firm Greg Smith and Associates.

Craig pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after being arrested in Minnesota as part of a sting to catch men soliciting sex in an airport bathroom. Craig says he is innocent and is trying to withdraw his guilty plea.
