Ugh... I just don't understand how she is doing so badly in the polls. She has been a better governor than at least Locke and he had a good amount of support. Is it just sympathy for Rossi left over from 2004??

I don't follow Washington State politics but haven't the Democrats controlled the governorship for a quite a while now. It could be possible the voters could decided to elect a Republican governor in a Democratic year?

Isn't it just funny Phil how every time a poll comes out showing Dino within a hairs breath of Gregoire the Dems and most of the Greens from WA on this forum scream bloody murder? Imagine what they do if Rossi was 10pts ahead.

You don't want to know what we would do if he was ahead by 10.

How touching that so many out of state Republicans are so concerned with our Gubernatorial race.  At least when there was flooding in the SW part of the state Gregoire dropped her campaign events and went to work, which is more than President Bush can say with regards to the flood in New Orleans.  She didn't put a fired horse trader with no disaster relief experience in charge of the operation either.

In fact, Gregoire was praised for her work on the flood, including by Republicans who represent the area.

Quote
Republican lawmakers are celebrating the passage of several pieces of flood-relief legislation, including a $50 million bond authorization to build flood-control projects. They say cooperation with Gregoire has been excellent through the legislative session that ended Thursday.

Everybody has worked very hard on this," said House Minority Leader Richard DeBolt, R-Chehalis. "The governor's office was great to work with."

DeBolt made the flood-relief and -prevention legislation a priority for him and his fellow Republicans. And he said House Speaker Frank Chopp was supportive as well.

Rep. Gary Alexander, R-Olympia, the ranking Republican on the Appropriations Committee, is DeBolt's seatmate in a district that stretches from the state capital down to the flood zone.

"No one in the Legislature or the governor's office has hesitated over our request for flood-mitigation funding," Alexander said in a news release this week.

Rossi, of course, only found fault with her work on the issue.  Typical of him since he can't show any leadership.

I feel like Washington has fared better than the rest of the country over the past few years so maybe you guys should try to copy what we have done instead of trying to stop something that has clearly been working for us.

Cook Co. is definitely doing its part to copy what King Co. has done.

"Clearly been working?" Really? 52% disapproval for your incumbent Governor and things are "clearly" working? Or are you calling the fine people of your state stupid?

Her approvals are low because she is currently involved in a very negative campaign coming from both sides and truthfully while many people like what she has done as governor they just don't like her as a person.

Rossi has similar favorable ratings according to Rasmussen. It's also worth pointing out that the 52 number came from a SUSA poll, which I hope we can all agree has been a little weird this year. But even then, SUSA still says Gregoire is up 1 despite her poor approval ratings. But personally I trust Rasmussen more. I can't recall exactly, but I believe they had something like 43% saying she was doing a good job and 34% saying she was doing a bad job. Not quite the same as "approve or disapprove" but whatever.

And like CultureKing said, Gregoire faces the McCain problem. She's an ugly old bureaucrat up against a handsome young man with an exotic name.

There is quantitative data which supports CultureKing's statement that Washington state has fared better overall than much of the country.  The Financial Times did a survey of all 50 states to see how each one was faring during the economic crisis.  The methodology:

Quote
The overall ranking is based on an average ranking of four separate indicators.  Individual states were ranked separately from best to worst.  Best =

1.  highest employment growth rate
2.  highest gross state product growth rate
3.  highest personal income growth rate
4.  lowest foreclosure rate

The final ranking was based on an equally weighted mean of these rankings.

Washington state finished 12th best in the survey out of the 50 states.  Texas was first.  Florida had the dubious distinction of finishing last.
