Poll shows Inslee at 37 pc approval

First District Congressman Jay Inslee appears to be vulnerable, according to a poll commissioned by his opponent James Watkins. In the poll
  • Only 37% say Inslee deserves re-election
  • In a first head-to-head, Inslee gets 41%; Watkins gets 27%
  • In a second head-to-head, after hearing the two candidates’ backgrounds, Watkins gets 44%; Inslee gets 42%
  • 66% don’t know what Inslee’s greatest accomplishment is as a congressman
  • 64% describe themselves as fiscal conservatives
The conventional wisdom on Inslee has been that he’s pretty much a shoo-in, given his easy wins in recent cycles. But these numbers put that notion to rest. Inslee’s status as a career politican and his close ties with the highly unpopular House Democratic leadership make him a prime target of voter ire this cycle. I don't see it online yet, but it was conducted by Moore Information.
