New Poll Shows Long and Herrera Beutler Neck-and-Neck
Carolyn Long campaign releases internal poll showing them at 47-49, with just five weeks until election day
VANCOUVER, WA — With just five weeks until election day, Carolyn Long, candidate for Congress in Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, is within the margin of error against five-term incumbent Jaime Herrera Beutler, according to an internal poll.
The poll conducted by GQR showed that Long is gaining ground, trailing behind just two points.
“The campaign to represent Southwest Washington in Congress is more competitive than ever —and the stakes have never been higher,” said Abby Olmstead, Campaign Manager for Carolyn Long. “In 2020, we face the choice between reelecting a career politician who has spent a decade staying silent, who is never available to her constituents, and who is continuously working with Trump to dismantle access to healthcare, or Carolyn — who will be hard-working, present, and accountable. She’s already released a plan to get the district back on track and on the road to recovery from this pandemic. She will be a representative that always puts the people of Southwest Washington first.”
GQR conducted a poll of 400 likely general election voters. The poll was conducted via live dial interviewing from September 24th—26th. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 4.9 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence interval. Key findings include:

Joe Biden is tied with Donald Trump in the district. Biden is statistically tied with Trump at 47-48%, with 6% of voters undecided.
