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.

Trio of Senate polls?

In the past week we have new polls from Rasmussen Reports, SurveyUSA, and Strategic Vision on the state's US Senate race, though the SurveyUSA poll I only have unsubstantiated information for as it is not posted on their website yet. The results:

Rasmussen Reports [I]: Maria Cantwell 46 [-2%] Mike McGavick 40 [+3%]
SurveyUSA [I]: Cantwell 53 McGavick 36 Adair 3 Dixon 3 Guthrie 3 (Edited with verification)
Strategic Vision [R]: Cantwell 48 McGavick 43 [-1%]

Rasmussen appears to have reverted to its consistent small Cantwell lead results and it's probable their July result of 48-37 was either an outlier or a brief result of Cantwell's initial ad blitz. The SurveyUSA poll would certainly be good for the incumbent if the source I caught it from is correct, though I'm curious if that is the case will the Democrats badmouthing their methodology last week (when they had Dave Reichert out to a decent lead) change their tune? In my experience, SurveyUSA is consistently fair and usually more accurate than any of the other major independent pollsters, robo-polling or not.

The SurveyUSA poll is now available and confirmed.

Looks like they also polled the initiatives and Supreme Court races, as well.
