2008 A Rare and Interesting Thing
posted by November 28 at 14:35 PMon
Because of our late (and possibly inconsequential) caucuses, a poll that looks at what Washingtonians are thinking about the presidential candidates is a rare thing.
But Washington State polls do happen, and Postman is now pointing at an interesting one. The non-partisan Washington Poll, conducted by the University of Washington, has found that in this state, Hillary Clinton is the top choice of Democrats and Rudy Giuliani is the top choice of Republicans.
However, very interestingly, the poll also found that Barack Obama would do better than Hillary Clinton in a Washington State general election match-up against Giuliani.
That’s because Obama does better than Clinton or Giuliani among independent voters.
In fact, in two hypothetical general election match-ups here, the poll found that Clinton would be dead even with Giuliani while Obama would beat Giuliani by eight percentage points.
