Elway has released a new poll today of 405 registered Washington state voters interviewed from Feb 7-9. The poll offers several interesting head-to-head match-ups with Obama:
Here are the highlights:
- Obama is +11% against Romney, 49% to 38%
- Obama is +8% against a generic Republican, 50% to 42%
- Romney loses about 6% of Republican voters compared to a generic Republican candidate.
- When Ron Paul is added to the mix, 17% abandon Romney for Paul.
Republicans are having troubles warming up to the Mittster.
Obama has maintained a solid lead over Romney in Washington state. He led by +8 (49% to 41%) in last November’s Survey USA poll. Before that, the October Washington Poll found Obama leading by +9.5% (50.2% to 40.7%):
Obama will be visiting Washington state on Friday where, among other things, he’ll visit a Boeing manufacturing plant in Everett.
