Now Six Weeks Until King County Ballots Counted, Hutchison and Constantine Remain Even: In an election for King County Executive today, 09/22/09, six weeks until votes are counted, Susan Hutchison and Dow Constantine remain effectively even, just as they were 18 days ago, according to this latest exclusive KING-TV poll conducted by SurveyUSA. Though there is some offsetting consolidation and shifting of support among demographic sub-populations, the overall numbers are unchanged: Hutchison 47%, Constantine 44%.

Hutchison, a former local TV news anchor, had led by margins of 3:1 among Republicans and conservatives; today, she leads 6:1 among Republicans, 7:1 among conservatives. Constantine, currently chairman of the King County Council, maintains his lead of nearly 3:1 among liberals and nearly 2:1 among Democrats, and has closed the gap among voters earning less then $50K, where the two candidates are now even. Hutchison had led among men, is now tied. Constantine had tied among women, now trails.
