Dino Rossi (R) - 52%.
Pat Murray (D) - 45%.
Undecided voters - 3%.
* Denotes Incumbent
I knew that Washington's Primary results on Tuesday meant Mr.Rossi was on the correct path, but I didn't know he was actually on a winning path this early in the general election. 90% of all Republican voters support his campaign, along with about 60% of Independents - that is simply amazing to see in a state like Washington. We have to remember that Rossi virtually won the Governor's race in 2004 and still has a high level of support and credibility in this Pacific Northwest state.

Defeating Senator Murray is no longer a question of maybe, but by how much. Especially when you consider that her campaign is trailing to Dino Rossi among voters aged 18-49, a crucial bloc of votes in a state where 52% of voters are under the age of 50. Also, Mr.Rossi leads both voters who have graduated college (51%), and who have not graduated from college (49%).

Note - 51% of Washington voters are college graduates, while 49% are not. Sorry if any confusion came from my initial post.
