Full results at noon, but some early tidbits:
In the earlier KCTS 9/KPLU/Washington poll, conducted a few weeks ago, Murray had an 8-point lead over her Republican challenger Dino Rossi.
In the newest poll, that lead is cut in half. It shows Murray with 49 percent of the vote to 45 percent for Rossi. The margin of error is 4.3 percent percent.
But, University of Washington pollster Matt Barreto says if you just look at the people who are likely to vote, people who voted in the last two elections, the numbers are more favorable to Murray. She garners 51 percent to Rossi's 45 percent...
One thing the University of Washington political science professor noticed in his poll results is that, unlike in many states, in Washington Democrats seem more enthusiastic about voting than tea party loyalists. The Puget Sound area is overwhelmingly made up of Democrats.
The KCTS 9/KPLU/Washington poll also shows the state income tax initiative, Initiative 1098, failing, the soda and candy tax being repealed and an even split on the initiative to privatize liquor sales in the state.
