Obama 53, McCain 35
Gov: Gregoire (D-i) 50, Rossi 43 (R)
In agreement with SUSA. WA seems to be full of the kind of white people who like Obama; I saw that the McCain campaign listed it as a tossup in their strategy map, which I sure hope represents their honest opinion, because it could cause them to send millions down the tubes.

@mago: Maybe they know where the other 12% are going. This is WA, so it's not avid blue collar HRC supporters. It is also not evangelical christians though.
Pollsters should start asking about those "others".

FACT: Washington State is not all white people although the majority.
There are substantial populations of African-Americans in the Seattle area... The executive of King County (where Seattle is located) is African-American Ron Sims who was a Hillary Supporter.
Also Asian population (ranked 5th)... Washington State's former governor Gary Locke is Chinese-American and was a Hillary Supporter.
Washington State also has a large population of Hispanics (ranked 13th) primarily in the Yakima Valley (and the majority supported Hillary).
And a substantial American Indian population with 40 tribes.
I just wanted to make it clear that Washington State is far from being homogenous in ethnicity and political preferences.
