This should move WA back to dark blue, shouldn't it? And it doesn't look like Gregoire is going to have to sweat out any recounts this time.

Elway is a well-known regional pollster. This poll is similar to Elway's poll during the summer, which frankly has been an outlier compared to others. I hope Elway is right. Rossi is a crybaby, a cheat, and a lying greaseball, and he doesn't belong anywhere near Olympia.

McCain and Rossi are fading fast in this state, for many reasons. Washingtonians don't like dishonest negative ads, or the politicians who run them (or who have PACS run them for them). We also don't like politicians who lie about what they stand for. McCain's "welfare for the rich" campaign is illogical, and perfectly illustrates his lack of understanding of basic economic theory. And Rossi? A total fake whose policies would immeasurably hurt this state. This state is dark blue now, and we will be staying that way.
