A CNN/Time poll out today has Sen. Patty Murray up by nine points over Dino Rossi.
The results match the spread between the candidates in an Elway Poll released this week. Republicans complained Elway’s results have consistently shown Murray with more support than other pollsters and shouldn’t be trusted, but the CNN poll makes them less of an outlier.
Real Clear Politics’ average of recent polls shows Murray up by just 2 points. That includes two August polls by Rasmussen Reports and SurveyUSA that had Rossi up by 3 and 7 points respectively.
CNN/Time: Murray 53 Rossi 44.
Elway: Murray 50 Rossi 41.
Rasmussen: Murray 47 Rossi 50 (with leaners)
SurveyUSA: Murray 45 Rossi 52.
