Bob Ferguson, the Democratic candidate for state attorney general, has all but lost his lead in his vigorous battle for the job with Republican Reagan Dunn, according to the latest KING-TV SurveyUSA poll.
If the election were held today, or more precisely, Oct. 12-14, when the poll was conducted, 40 percent of respondents would vote for Ferguson, 38 percent for Dunn and 23 percent were still undecided. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points. The statewide poll includes 543 likely voters.
Two earlier SurveyUSA polls of likely voters showed Ferguson ahead by 9 points and 8 points, respectively.
