KING 5 poll: governor’s race down to the wire
A new poll for KING 5 finds the governor’s race a dead heat as Democrat Jay Inslee and Republican Rob McKenna enter their final days of campaigning.
With just five days to go until votes are counted, the poll found Inslee with 47 percent support and McKenna with 46 percent, with 7 percent undecided. That’s well within the survey’s 4.2 percent margin of error. The poll of 555 likely voters (including some who’d already mailed in ballots) was conducted Oct. 28 through Oct. 31 by SurveyUSA.
The tight gubernatorial race comes despite President Obama’s solid lead in Washington – he’s up 54-40 percent over Mitt Romney in the KING 5 poll.
The poll found support for gay marriage and marijuana legalization measures.
Initiative 502, which would license and regulate marijuana distribution was up 56-37 percent in the poll, with 7 percent undecided.
Referendum 74, which would legalize gay marriage, was up 52-43 percent, with 5 percent undecided.
