Inslee, Clinton Still Atop Latest Polls in Washington State
OLYMPIA (AP) — The latest polling in Washington state shows incumbent Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee capturing more than 50 percent of voter support, and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton with a 17-point lead over Republican Donald Trump.
The survey released Monday by independent pollster Stuart Elway shows Clinton's lead in the state shrunk slightly from the last poll, done in August, when she had a 19-point lead.
Washington state hasn't voted for a Republican candidate for president since 1984.
In the state's gubernatorial race, Inslee led his Republican challenger, Bill Bryant, 51 percent to 39 percent, with 10 percent of those surveyed undecided.
The Elway survey of 502 registered voters was conducted by phone Oct. 20-22. The margin of error was plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
