Another poll shows McKenna leading governor's race

The second poll in a week shows Attorney General Rob McKenna (R) with an ample lead over Congressman Jay Inslee (D) in the governor's race.

The Survey USA poll for KING-TV shows McKenna up 10 points on Inslee, 49-39%. That follows an Elway poll that had McKenna up 45-36.

Both statewide polls show McKenna leading among independent voters and even pulling away a small-but-significant chunk of Democrats.

The Survey USA poll of 572 registered voters was conducted Feb. 13 to Feb. 15 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percent.
