    Oregon voter registration is 56% Dem, 43% Republican, 1% other.

    In the Dudley camp…..

    …..”Need change/change is needed 33%
    Dislike John Kitzhaber 30%
    I vote Republican 12%”…..

    Probably all or nearly all Republican with a few Dems crossing over accounting for Dudley’s 45%. If that’s correct, that means that most undecideds are Dems, likely from the most blue counties, Lane and Multnomah. That doesn’t bode well for Dudley as most (60% ?) of that 12% block will swing Kitzhaber’s way.

    I’d like to be wrong but I think Oregon will stay blue.
