Latest poll has Obama leading by 11 points in Washington

The Latest SurveyUSA poll, conducted for KING 5 TV in Seattle, shows that Senator Barack Obama has re-opened a large lead over Senator John McCain in what was once considered a battleground state.  The poll was conducted September 21st and 22nd.  The poll of likely voters has Obama with 54% and McCain with 43%. 

 

Among Independents, Obama holds a 7 point lead, and among self-described Moderates, Obama holds a 20 point lead.

 

Only 2 weeks ago (just after the GOP convention), SurveyUSA had McCain within striking distance of Obama, who held a slim 49% to 45% lead.

 

In a related poll, the Governor’s race remains too close to call.  Governor Christine Gregoire (D) leads challenger Dino Rossi (prefers GOP) by only 2 points, within the poll’s margin of error.  Independents favor Rossi by 10 points but Moderates prefer Gregoire by 11 points.

 

This race looks like it will come down to a hundred, may several thousand votes.  That means YOU (Natives) will determine the outcome!
