Washington: PPP’s Surprise Poll: Public Policy Polling again conducted one of their regular Washington statewide surveys for the Northwest Progressive Institute and the results are eye-opening. According to the PPP study (11/14-15; 750 WA registered voters; multiple sampling techniques), former Congressman Dave Reichert (R) and Attorney General Bob Ferguson (D) are tied with 31% support apiece.
The shocker comes when the pollsters queried the respondents about who they would support in a general election assuming that both Messrs. Reichert and Ferguson advance from the all-party jungle primary into the November election. On the ballot test, Mr. Reichert enjoyed a 46-44% lead over AG Ferguson. It is an astonishing result in that a Republican would post any kind of an advantage in Washington, one of the most Democratic states in the Union.
