Weird that Obama is doing a lot worse in Oregon than in Washington.

Weird?  How?  Oregon has always been less Democratic than either Washington or California given it is more rural than either state.  Portland is its largest city -and it's smaller than Seattle.

Not in 2008 though. Obama won Washington by 17% and Oregon by 16%. This year it looks like Obama's lead in Washington is only down a little bit, but has been nearly cut in half in Oregon.

Then what we are seeing is a return to the norm -2008 was an exceptional year with exceptional circumstances.  One that cannot be replicated.
