OLYMPIA, Wash. -

A new poll says Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has more statewide support than leading Republican challenger Bill Bryant in the gubernatorial election race.

The survey of 503 registered voters taken during April 14-17 and released Tuesday by independent pollster Stuart Elway found 48 percent preferred Inslee while 36 percent supported Bryant. Another 16 percent were undecided. The poll had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.5 percent.

In January, a similar poll said Inslee led by nine percentage points while 31 percent were undecided.

State superintendent Randy Dorn has flirted with running for governor but not officially announced his candidacy. When including him in the most recent survey, 41 percent of voters asked would choose Inslee, 26 percent supported Bryant, 25 percent were undecided and 7 percent would vote for Dorn.     

The general election is on Nov. 8.
