Key findings:

- Obama leads men by 7, Clinton trails by 7; Obama leads women by 19, Clinton by 14
- Young voters prefer Obama by 52 points, and Clinton by only 14
- Moderates prefer Obama by 36 points, and Clinton by only 14
- As appears to be the pattern in the Pacific Northwest, more Democrats abandon Clinton than Obama, but neither bleeds much

Solidity rankings
Solid Obama 43%
Lean Obama 9%
Lean McCain 9%
Solid McCain 31%

Solid Clinton 40%
Lean Clinton 8%
Lean McCain 11%
Solid McCain 33%

Nothing surprising here.  Moderate Washington suburbanites tend to vote Democratic unless they're given a reason to, and Hillary Clinton is evidently a reason.

So much for another state that the McCain homers though the Straight Talk Express was going to put into play.

You know what I tend to notice? It seems as if campaigns generally don't make it on the northern coasts (Washington/Oregon) and (Maine)  as much as the rest of the country. I wonder if a good ad buy into Oregon and even Washington by the McCain Campaign can help his numbers. Still a decent Obama win though, IMO.

It's very strange that Obama is stronger in Washington that in what one usually considers "solid" Democratic states, like California, New York and Massachusetts.

Especially since there aren't that many swing voters in Washington. We are a very polarized state. That's also why a campaign by a Republican isn't very functional. Just look at our Gubernatorial races. I don't think there has been a Republican governor since I've been alive.

The demographics are very good for him here.

Obama wins educateds... Washington is home to how many high-tech, high skill professions.
