Poll: Voters give Inslee a "C" grade; just 30 percent say they're inclined to vote to re-elect


OLYMPIA, Washington — A new poll shows that while Washington Gov. Jay Inslee got a better grade from respondents than the state Legislature, just 30 percent say they were inclined to vote to re-elect him.

Independent pollster Stuart Elway's poll, released Wednesday, showed that 7 out of 10 voters polled gave Inslee a "C'' grade. Those same voters gave the Legislature, which went into a triple overtime session this year, a "D'' grade. However, the poll of 502 registered voters conducted last week found that just 30 percent of voters said they were inclined to vote for Inslee when he's up for re-election next year. Yet only 25 percent said they would vote for a Republican. The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.

So far, just one Republican has announced to run again Inslee, Port of Seattle Commissioner Bill Bryant.
