Who’s going to beat Inslee?

July 29th, 2015 by Ken

Governor Jay Inslee can’t be re-elected as governor, if a poll by Stuart Elway is correct.

Only 30 percent of those who responded to the poll said they would be willing to re-elect the governor.   Yet – 25 percent of them also said they wouldn’t vote for a Republican.

Capturing a 50 percent majority from 75 percent of the electorate isn’t an easy task, and so far only one Republican has made any moves to challenge the governor when he’s up for re-election next year.  That’s Bill Bryant, Port of Seattle commissioner.

But, helping the Republicans is the fact that 26 percent of the Democrats said they would be willing to vote for “a different Democrat” next year  So far, no Democrat has decided to challenge Inslee.

The poll was taken before the governor acted like an Obama-clone and opted to use executive powers to get what he couldn’t get from the legislature.    This action might encourage a Republican or two, or even a Democrat to consider replacing him.
