Republican Senate candidate from Washington state, Tiffany Smiley is closing in on her Democrat opponent, and the incumbent Senator Patty Murray as the November general election date approaches.
The latest poll conducted by McLaughlin & Associates reveals that Smiley has 43 percent of the state’s approval rating, compared to Murray’s falling 49 percent with eight percent of the participants remain undecided.
This is a significant development as Washington state is a deep blue, Democrat-loving state and has elected Democrats for ages. In fact, as it stands right now, the same McLaughlin & Associates poll reveals that Joe Biden, despite all his shortcomings has a 48 percent approval rating in the state with 51 percent disapproving.
This number is much wider in most states across the country.
A majority, 64 percent of participants from the state believe that the country is headed down the wrong track and only 28 percent believe it’s on the right track and 8 percent “don’t know” or have an opinion on the same.
The McLaughlin & Associates poll was taken statewide in Washington from August 15 to 17 among 500 likely general election voters. There was a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent and a 95 percent confidence level.
A similar poll from YouGov earlier in the month revealed that voters’ enthusiasm to vote for Republicans in this year’s November midterm elections grew by six points and enthusiasm for Democrats and Independents remained the same, after the FBI’s unconstitutional raid on former President Donald Trump’s private residence.
Between the polls on August 7 to 9, before the raid, and August 13 to 16, after the raid, Republican enthusiasm for voting in this year’s midterm election went from only 45 percent to 51 percent. This is a big gain in a deep blue state like Washington and experts are predicting it could play well for Smiley and the current incumbent since 1993 could be finally voted out from the swamp.
