Rossi still hasn’t declared, but he will…
I’m 99% sure of it. He wouldn’t be making these kinds of comments if he weren’t going to enter the race.
Democratic incumbent Patty Murray manages to reach 50% support against her two leading announced Republican opponents in Washington State’s U.S. Senate race. But she remains in a virtual tie with another Republican, Dino Rossi, who has yet to rule himself in or out.
For the second straight month, Murray earns 48% support to Rossi’s 46%. Just two percent (2%) would opt for some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are not sure.
Prior to the last two polls, Rossi was the only Republican to earn more support than Murray. Since January, Murray has earned between 46% and 48% support against Rossi. During the same period, Rossi has earned 46% and 49% support.
An incumbent who earns less than 50% support at this stage of a campaign is considered vulnerable.
