Two new, and essentially conflicting, polls on the Maria Cantwell-Mike McGavick Senate race. Both show Cantwell ahead; they differ sharply on the spread.
The new Strategic Vision poll gives her a five-point lead, 48%-43%. That’s actually up from a four-point lead a month ago. SV polls mainly for Republicans.
The latest Survey USA poll puts Cantwell ahead 56% to 39% – a 17-point lead.
Our suspicion is that the current reality lies in between.
Both polls were conducted during the period when McGavick’s confessional (from last week) was making the media rounds.Share on Facebook
