I-1183 retains a slight edge among voters, according to the Washington Poll.

On Monday the Washington Poll, the survey wonk based out of UW, released stats from an analysis of just over 930 Evergreen voters. Among the findings: half of the respondents are leaning toward spendy liquor privatization measure 1183 (more on the Costco-backed I-1183 here). Forty-three percent are against it, and seven percent remain undecided.

Meanwhile, in recent days a slew of statewide orgs have come out voicing their opposition to the initiative, including the public health, medical, and nurses associations and International Community Health Services. Governor Gregoire has also naysaid the measure.
