Poll says Rossi, Murray in a dead heat

A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows Dino Rossi basically tied with Sen. Patty Murray in a hypothetical fall matchup.

Rossi, the two-time GOP gubernatorial candidate, hasn't said yet whether he'll challenge the Democrat who is seeking her fourth term. The Rasmussen survey shows:

• Murray: 48 Percent
• Rossi: 46 Percent
• Some Other Candidate: 2 Percent
The survey of 500 likely voters was taken Tuesday, May 4. The margin of error was 4.5 percent. A recent Elway Poll showed Murray with a bigger advantage.

Nate Silver, who runs the FiveThirtyEight website and is something of a rock star to poll geeks, weighed in on the Ross-Murray situation Wednesday.
