KING-TV poll: Seattle mayor's race a dead heat
Posted by Jim Brunner
A new KING-TV poll by the robo-polling firm Survey USA finds Mike McGinn and Joe Mallahan all knotted up in the Seattle mayor's race.
The poll has Mallahan with 45 percent to McGinn's 43 percent. With 12 percent undecided and a 4.1 percent margin of error, that means the outcome is totally up in the air, according to the poll.
That's a different story than the poll released last week by University of Washington researchers. That poll of 400 likely voters over a two-week period found Mallahan surging ahead of McGinn.
The results of the only poll that matters will come tomorrow after 8 p.m., when the county reveals election results. If the race is as close as the KING poll suggests, we may not know the winner until much later in the week as later arriving ballots are tallied.
