Latest poll: Obama miles ahead in Washington state; marijuana and gay marriage close but up
The latest KING-TV SurveyUSA poll shows President Obama faring better in Washington state in 2012 than he did four years ago. He is now, according to the poll, 20 points out in front, 56 to 36 percent. Don’t be surprised if the two campaigns don’t spend much cash here. They haven’t been — and they won’t now.
Other results from the poll conducted from Sept. 28 through Sept. 30, show Referendum 74, the gay marriage measure, and Initiative 502, the pot legalization plan, ahead but close — not too far above the margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percent. Asked about approving gay marriage, 55 percent of voters surveyed were supportive; marijuana legalization was polling at 57 percent favorable. The voting sample included 540 likely voters across the state.
