In an election for President of the United States today, Democrat Barack Obama holds Washington State's 12 Electoral College Votes, according to a SurveyUSA poll for KING-TV Seattle. In head-to-head hypothetical elections today, it is:

* Barack Obama 49%

* Newt Gingrich 37%
* Democratic Margin of Victory: 19 points

* In 2008, Obama defeated John McCain in Washington State by 17 points.

Cell-phone and home-phone respondents included in this research. SurveyUSA interviewed 700 Washington state adults 11/21/11 through 11/23/11. Of them, 613 were registered to vote. Of the registered, 549 were determined by SurveyUSA to be likely to vote in the November 2012 presidential election. This research was conducted multimode. Respondents who use a home telephone (83% of likely voters), were interviewed on their home phone in the recorded voice of a professional announcer. Respondents who do not use a home telephone (17% of likely voters), were shown a questionnaire on their smartphone, tablet, laptop or other electronic device. Obama leads Romney by 6 points among home-phone respondents, but leads by 16 points among cell-phone respondents (a 10-point difference). When the 2 groups are proportionally blended, Obama leads Romney by 8.
