The latest Rasmussen Reports election poll shows Sen. Maria Cantwell holding a 15 point lead over putative GOP challenger Mike McGavick for the third straight month, 51% to 36%. Cantwell’s job approval rating is a comfortable 58%.
It is also interesting to note that Gov. Christine Gregoire’s job approval rating continues to climb, now standing at 55%. Come 2008 it looks like she’ll hold all the traditional advantages of incumbency.
