The latest University of Washington poll finds Initiative 502, which would legalize marijuana for adults over 21 in Washington State, on track to winning approval.

Washington State – Initiative 502
Washington Poll (10/18-31)
55.4% – Total – Yes on 502
36.7% – Total – No on 502
6.8% – Undecided
0.3% – Will not vote on this issue
This represents a significant improvement compared to their early polling. The previous Washington Poll from the first half of October found I-502 only leading 47.1 percent yes to to 40.1 percent no.
This new Washington Poll brings their result much more in line with the recent polling from SurveyUSA and Strategies 360. The latest SurveyUSA poll found the initiative leading 56% to 37% while the Strategies 360 poll had it up 54% to 38%.
The consensuses of the recent polling is that I-502 has more than the 50 percent support needed to win and there are no signs that the initiative is losing support in the final days of the campaign. With just five days until the election its chances of winning are extremely good.
