Today, a KING 5 poll has McKenna up 44-38.
Last week, a Strategies 360 poll showed McKenna beating Inslee 46-39.
And today's results add weight to the numbers we focused on last week: McKenna's strength in the traditionally blue King County.
KING 5 reports:
McKenna’s early lead can be attributed in part to his strength in the Puget Sound area. In King, Pierce and Snohomish counties, he’s even with Inslee at 41% each, which is significant for a Republican candidate. As expected, McKenna picks up votes in more conservative eastern Washington with a 59%-25% advantage. But the large population in the Metro Seattle area is key.
