Poll Watch: Strategies 360 Washington 2012 Gubernatorial Survey

Strategies 360 Washington 2012 Gubernatorial Poll
  • Rob McKenna (R) 43%
  • Jay Inslee (D) 39%
Survey of 500 likely voters was conducted last week. The margin of error is +/- 4.4 percentage points.

Inside the numbers:
The poll found that McKenna has higher favorability ratings, with 37 percent saying they have a positive opinion of him and 29 percent saying they have a favorable opinion of Inslee.

On the issue of legalizing marijuana, voters are split at 43 percent, with 9 percent needing to know more information and 4 percent not expressing an opinion. Initiative 502, which would legalize and tax sales of marijuana to adults 21 and over, will be on the November ballot. In September, a Strategies 360 found voters were equally split, at 46 percent for and 46 percent against legalization.

The initiative would create a system of state-licensed growers, processors and stores, and impose a 25 percent excise tax at each stage. Those 21 and over could buy up to an ounce of dried marijuana; one pound of marijuana-infused product in solid form, such as brownies; or 72 ounces of marijuana-infused liquids.
