Poll shows McMorris Rodgers with slight lead over Brown

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Republican U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has a slight lead over Democrat Lisa Brown in the first independent poll in their race for the U.S. House seat for Washington's 5th congressional district.

The independent poll released on Wednesday showed McMorris Rodgers leading Brown, 44 percent to 38 percent. However, the poll has a margin of error of 5 percent, meaning the result could be within the margin. The poll found 16 percent of voters were undecided and 3 percent preferred another candidate.

McMorris Rodgers has had easy victories in her seven previous races.

The Elway poll of 403 voters was conducted between April 4-7 and commissioned by The Spokesman-Review , KHQ-TV, the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin, Spokane Public Radio and the Lewiston Tribune.
