The U.S. Senate race is getting more interesting between Sen. Patty Murray, a barnacle-encrusted anchor from a boat, and Tiffany Smiley (the Republican), veterans’ activist, and nurse Tiffany Smiley. RealClearPolitics changed the race from “leans Democrat” to “toss-up.” One poll suggests that the Washington Senate race is now “ground zero” for a wave election upset.
We’ll see. This requires that voters actually submit their ballots to this mail-in state.

Smiley has been rising in recent weeks. She has also received crucial aid from Mitch McConnell’s Senate PAC money. She has performed admirably on the campaign trail as well as during debates.
Murray was up eight points in a recent poll, but her lead has been eroded by the terrible conditions in Washington. Record gas prices and the intention to increase them further due to the Democrats’ obsession with the weather. Truck drivers need diesel fuel to get goods to customers, and there’s a Democrat-policy-induced shortage. Food is more expensive. Everything is more costly. What is the point of America funding both the Ukrainian-Russian wars? This is something that nobody knows, but even Washington’s Ukraine flag virtue signalists know it makes no sense.
RealClearPolitics now lists the race as a toss-up and a statistical tie. Patty Murray could have to get a job after three decades of being inactive in the Senate.
A new Trafalgar poll has shown that Murray’s support stands at 49.4%, with Smiley at 48.2% and 2.4% still undecided.

Another poll has also moved the race into a statistical tie after Murray lost her four-point advantage in September.
According to the Moore Information Group poll, Murray received a lower rating.
Murray’s net favorability now stands at minus 3 percent (45 percent favorable to 48 percent unfavorable). This is compared to September’s minus 1 percent (44 percent favorable/45 percent unfavorable). Smiley, on the other hand, maintains a positive image while she increases her awareness among voters.
It is easy to see why. Moore’s poll found that 8 percent of voters are still undecided and independent voters believe Democrats are running the country to its death. They’re correct.
About eight percent of Washington State voters remain undecided about the race for the U.S. Senate. However, they don’t look friendly to the incumbent because they are pessimistic regarding the country’s direction, President Joe Biden, and Murray.
Murray made abortion her campaign’s central issue. Murray spent millions on television ads to convince Washingtonians that the Supreme Court decision resolving the abortion question to the voters in each state was scary. Her state has liberal abortion laws. Murray, who believes in unrestricted abortions right up to the moment they are performed, is an extremist on this issue. Murray has not renounced her bizarre beliefs on this subject. She championed an abortion access bill more expansive than Roe V. Wade.
According to the poll, Murray did not perform as expected. The poll found that voters don’t think about abortion, despite high prices and high levels of crime.
Moore poll results show that undecided voters think that crime and excessive government spending, which directly leads to inflation, are the most pressing issues. Smiley made crime the central theme of her campaign.

The polls revealed that nearly 80% of respondents believe the country is on the “wrong track” and 60% disapprove of Joe Biden’s job performance.

Moore observed that in wave election years, “the national political environment is often key to flipping Senate chairs and right now, Washington’s Senate race has become ground zero of a wave electoral upset.”
It has been many decades since Washington had a balanced representation in Congress. It’s high time conservatives were heard.
