President Barack Obama holds an 8-point lead over presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Washington, according to a poll from Elway Research released Tuesday.
The statewide poll of registered voters shows Obama earning the support of 49 percent, while Romney trails with 41 percent. While that amounts to a 3-point gain for Romney since Elway’s previous poll in February, the president’s support has remained static. Obama carried Washington handily over Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in 2008.
Elway conducted its poll on June 13-16. It has a sample size of 408 registered voters and a margin of error of 5 percentage points.
