commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Merlin on the Washington State's Senate race…..

Hello Dog!

A new Statewide Survey in the Evergreen State shows that longterm Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) maybe vulnerable this year. Murray is barely over the 50 % Mark at which Incumbents considered to be vulnerable. She also leads 3 3rd Tier Opponents by double digits. However she trails ’04 & ’08 Republican Governor Candidate Dino Rossi (R) by 2 Points.

Merlin’s Observation:

Murray holding barely over 50 % against unknown Opponents isn’t good. Obama is barely over water in the State & Governor Gregoire with a dismal 41 % JA. The Republicans should play here.


From the Dog…..Murray is really cruisin here….

This from Rasmussen…..

‘Certainly the best-known of the Republicans, Rossi attracts 48% of the vote in a match-up with Murray while the incumbent earns 46%. One percent (1%) like another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

But Rossi, despite encouragement from many Republicans, says so far that he’s not interested in running for the Senate.’

So Rasmussen is polling a GOP person that isn’t a candidate.…….
