New poll: Inslee ahead in Washington gov race

Left: Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee. Right: Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna.

Washington’s gubernatorial race has been called one of the closest governor’s races in the country. The latest KING-TV SurveyUSA poll shows Democrat Jay Inslee out in front of Republican Rob McKenna in that squeaky tight contest.

If the election were held today, the poll says Inslee would win by 5 points.

The poll was conducted Sept. 7 to 9 among 524 likely voters statewide and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

Both campaigns have news TV ads up, and ads move numbers. So do debates; two are scheduled in October, one Oct. 2 in Yakima and a KING-TV/ Seattle Times debate on Oct. 16.
