The latest KING-TV/Survey USA poll has Republican Congressman Dave Reichert still holding a 7-point advantage over Democratic challenger Suzan DelBene. The poll’s margin of error is 4 points.

Here’s the rest of the skinny:

In an election for US House of Representatives in Washington State’s 8th Congressional District today, 10/21/10, incumbent Republican Dave Reichert defeats Democratic challenger Suzan DelBene 52% to 45%, according to this latest exclusive KING-TV poll conducted by SurveyUSA.

Previous KING TV/Survey USA polls in the race had Reichert with a big, double-digit lead seven weeks ago, with DelBene fighting back to close within 7 points three weeks ago. The latest results indicate no overall change in the race since then.
