A year before the Washington gubernatorial rematch, Gov. Chris Gregoire and Dino Rossi are again running neck and neck, according to poll released today. The recent telephone survey of 601 randomly selected registered voters asked who they would vote for if the election were held today. The results: Democrat Gregoire 46.8 percent, Republican Rossi 42.4 percent, and Libertarian Ruth Bennett 2.2 percent. The remainder were divided between "someone else" at 1.2 percent and "don't know/undecided" at 7.3 percent. The survey is the work of Washington Poll, a non-partisan, academic research project based at the University of Washington. It was conducted Oct. 22-29 and has a plus or minus 4.0 percent margin of error. Update info: Another slice of the new poll data shows that Gregoire holds a larger lead among voters who cast ballots in each of the past three general elections. Among them, Gregoire leads Rossi 49 percent to 42 percent. But the tables are turned when it comes to newly registered voters, meaning those who registered since 2004. Among them, Rossi leads Gregoire, 45 percent to 38 percent.
