“The poll, conducted November 3-5, shows Smiley with a 0.4 percent lead over Murray, sitting at 47.4 percent and 47 percent, respectively.”
Of all the surprises in the 2022 midterms, and there have been quite a few, the success of Republican Tiffany Smiley in the state of Washington is one of the bigger ones.
Who knew that a Republican could do so well in a blue state?
One of the final polls of the season has Smiley in the lead.
Breitbart News reports:
Poll: Republican Tiffany Smiley Takes Lead in Washington Senate Race
Washington State Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley has taken the lead over 30-year incumbent Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), according to polling.
The poll, conducted November 3-5, shows Smiley with a 0.4 percent lead over Murray, sitting at 47.4 percent and 47 percent, respectively.
While Smiley has gained momentum, closing a significant gap in the deep blue state of Washington, Murray’s unpopularity has increased to 50 percent, while her favorable rating is 44 percent — a net unfavorability increase from three to six points since October.
Smiley, on the other hand, maintains a 46 percent favorable to 45 percent unfavorable rating.
On top of these ratings, President Joe Biden is also under water in Washington, DC, with 52 percent disapproving of the job he has done as president.
Smiley recently appeared on the Sean Hannity show to discuss her surprising campaign and why she thinks she has done so well.

As I’ve said, if Smiley pulls off a win here, the effects will be nuclear.
