I wouldn't be surprised if Trump cracks under 34% in Washington on ED, with a complete collapse in Metro SeaTac, evangelicals/Mormons bailing and voting Lib or not for top-of-ticket in Eastern Washington, Coastal Washington, etc....

I'm actually a bit surprised that Stein's numbers aren't stronger, and suspect some might have moved into an undecided category Post-Gropergate.

Honestly, I'm a little bit disappointed in this poll, as I was hoping Oregon would vote to the Left of Washington this November. Sad

It looks like they didn't push undecided voters much at all in this poll.

Stein should get over 1% here (she got .67% here in 2012) but Oregon will be much stronger for her.



Agreed...

One item that is often forgotten by many of our colleagues on the forum is that individuals in Western "Safe States" frequently vote 3rd Party at the National level primarily to secure automatic ballot access.

I agree that Stein will likely perform better in OR than WA as part of tactical decisions so that we continue to see Greens on the ballot for various down ballot elected positions. Maybe I'm wrong, but I remember what it took to get the Pacific Green Party on the ballot in Oregon way back in '92, that is primarily a local and statewide grassroots movement, and I do guarantee that there are many Oregonians that want a Green option for local and statewide elections to keep core issues first and center and "keep the Democratic Party honest" on these issues.
