WA-Sen: Rossi, Murray Tied Again

Posted: Sep 30, 2010 11:38 AM
The polling roller coaster in Washington State takes another heart-pounding turn:

Incumbent Democratic Senator Patty Murray and Republican challenger Dino Rossi are back to a virtual tie in Washington’s race for U.S. Senate.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Rossi picking up 48% support, while Murray earns 47% of the vote when leaners are included. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This race now moves back to a Toss-Up from Leans Democrat in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.

Two weeks ago, Murray moved to a modest 51% to 46% lead over Rossi when leaners were part of the totals.
