Poll: Obama Leads Romney By 8 In Washington

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.
