The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Cantwell skids again

The latest Rasmussen Reports [I] poll shows that, for the fifth consecutive poll, incumbent Sen. Maria Cantwell has lost support. She now leads assumed Republican nominee Mike McGavick 44-40, down two points from May (McGavick also has lost one point of support). National Republicans are beginning to lump us with New Jersey and Minnesota as their only potential bright spots in November's Senate races, and I would say for good reason. Cantwell, despite trotting out every Democratic Party superstar in the book at her rallies, cannot seem to shake the lefty jitters over her Iraq War position. However, before I change my personal prediction of a narrow Cantwell retention, McGavick needs to get up in the mid-40s.
