Obama way ahead in Washington state

President Obama has had a few positive weeks, including a convention that came off without many noticeable glitches, at least as far as voters in Washington state seem to think.

The latest KING-TV poll conducted by SurveyUSA shows Democrat Obama now leading Republican Mitt Romney by a whopping 16 points in research conducted Sept. 7 to 9, among 524 likely Washington voters.  That’s getting close to Obama’s 2008 final tally in Washington. Obama-Joe Biden beat John McCain and Sarah Palin by 17 points.

The latest poll carries a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.

Pundits talk a lot about a bounce, a jump in polls following a convention. Obama seems to have gotten one nationally: CNN says the president now leads Romney by 6 points.

Polls, as always, capture a moment in time. Keep in mind there are still 57 days to go until Election Day and many millions of dollars of advertising on behalf of both presidential tickets and a few debates sprinkled into the mix.
