Why is Tina Kotek In Trouble?

Oregon has been under Democratic Party’s rule for the last few decades. Being in power for such a long period of time, the anti-incumbency against the Democratic Party has grown. The Incumbent Governor Kate Brown (D) has an approval rating of 41%, the lowest in the United States.

Tina Kotek on the other hand has a 27.8% favorable rating while Christine Drazan has a 29.7% favorable rating. Tina Kotek’s unfavorable ratings stand at 45.8% while Christie Drazan’s unfavorable ratings are 25.3%.

The cost of Living in Oregon is also hurting Tina Kotek. Only 30% believe that the state is moving in the right direction. Oregon has had a huge surge in crime* (see table below) which has now become an important issue for voters.

Homelessness and Healthcare in 3rd on the list which is followed by Public education. The abortion issue is 5th on the list which may be a concern for Tina Kotek as the Democratic Party is highly banking on the abortion issue.

One of the important issue that is hurting Tina Kotek is that just 34% of the registered voters are registered as Democrats, and 40% of the voters are unaffiliated or Independent.

Tina Kotek will have to win a large majority of Democrat voters many of who are likely to vote for Betsy Johnson who was a Democrat and is now running as an Independent. She will also have to win 25-30% of the Unaffiliated/ Independent vote to win the election.

Christine Drazan on the other hand will have to carry most of the Republican vote (25%) and about 25-30% of the unaffiliated vote. It will be tougher for Tina Kotek given her party has been in power for 40 years in Oregon.

Why Christine Drazan Will Win?

A major factor that favors Christine Drazan is the unpopularity of the Democrat Governor. The incumbent governor is the most unpopular Governor in the United States. This factor may have a negative influence on the chances of Democrat Tina Kotek.

As of August 2022, the total number of registered Democrat Voters in Oregon is 1,011,328 while the Republican is 729,535. Oregon has massive non-affiliated voters, 1,017,662. Looking at the current Governor’s approval rating, the non-affiliated voters may spoil the chances of Tina Kotek and for a change prefer a Republican as a Governor.
