posted by October 19 at 16:50 PMon
The results of the latest Survey USA tracking poll are in, and Reichert is still at 50 percent while Burner is at 47 percent (with a margin of error of +/-4.7 percent). Survey USA’s analysis:
No Movement in Fierce Fight for WA8 House Seat: In an election for the U.S. House of Representatives today, 10/18/06, in Washington’s 8th Congressional District, incumbent Republican Dave Reichert and Democratic challenger Darcy Burner remain nose-to-nose, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for KING-TV Seattle. 20 days to the 11/7/06 general election, Reichert gets 50% of the vote, the same as in an identical SurveyUSA KING-TV poll released on 9/27/06. Burner gets 47%, down a statistically insignificant 1 point. Most Demographic groups are stable. But two are worth noting: Among Independent voters, Reichert had led by 5, now trails by 10, a 15-point swing. Among affluent voters, Burner had led by 4, now trails by 5, a 9-point swing.
