As we reported earlier today:
KING 5 is going to release polling later today that has Joe Mallahan and Mike McGinn in a statistical dead heat.
Well, the KING 5 poll is out now, and here is what KING 5 is reporting:
The race for Seattle Mayor is a virtual tie the day before the election, according to the final KING 5 News poll before votes are counted.
The poll, conducted over the weekend by SurveyUSA, has Joe Mallahan ahead of Mike McGinn, 45 percent to 43 percent, with 12 percent still undecided. With a margin of error of ± 4.1 percent, it’s anybody's race.
Mallahan, a T-Mobile executive, is notably ahead among older voters, Republicans, moderates and those with higher incomes. McGinn has the advantage among younger voters, liberals and those with lower incomes.
The survey polled 586 people who have either already mailed in their ballots or those who are likely to vote.
