Something Brewing in the Northwest? Washington GOP Sen. Candidate Tiffany Smiley Polling Close to Democrat Murray
“Per the poll, 48.7% indicated they would vote for Murray, with 46.5% voting for Smiley. Those who were undecided made up 4.8%.”
Something seems to be happening in the northwest. Republican Christine Drazan is surging in the governor race in Oregon. In Washington State, Republican senate candidate Tiffany Smiley is pulling within striking distance of Democrat incumbent Patty Murray, according to one poll.
Races in this region are not typically this close.

New poll shows Washington races for SOS office, U.S. Senate narrowing
The latest poll from Atlanta, Georgia-based Trafalgar Group shows a tightening of races for secretary of state and the U.S. Senate in Washington state.
According to the poll of 1,091 likely general election voters conducted between Sept. 21 and Sept. 24, 40.4% of voters said they would vote for Democratic incumbent Steve Hobbs in the special election for secretary of state, while 36.8% would vote for his nonpartisan opponent, Pierce County Julie Anderson. Undecided voters made up 22.8% of those polled…
The Trafalgar poll also shows Republican challenger Tiffany Smiley gaining a little on incumbent U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Bothell, trailing by only 2.2 percentage points.
Per the poll, 48.7% indicated they would vote for Murray, with 46.5% voting for Smiley. Those who were undecided made up 4.8%.
A poll by Trafalgar earlier in the month had Murray up by 2.9 percentage points. In that poll, Murray got 49.2% of the vote, Smiley got 46.3%, and 4.5% said they were undecided.

From FOX News:
ROBERT CAHALY: We would just ask people, you know, how do you think your neighbors are voting? It’s a projection device, and it would allow people to explain that, yes, maybe I’m for Hillary, but my neighbors are all for Trump, and it let them say they were for Trump without being judged.
This year, our fear is that people are not going to be polled that are Trump supporters because all that Biden has said, and all the apparent attacks, and people coming after them and they’re just hesitant even to participate. I think everybody will underestimate them, including us. Republican turnout will exceed even what we predict.

Conservatives probably won’t get their hopes too high, but if Republicans pull out a win in one or both of these races, it will be a political earthquake.
