Both Northwest Dim Bulb Senators Trailing

To the otherwise Great Northwest's shame, the two simplest minds in the United States Senate hail from Washington and Oregon. Of course, I'm talking about Patty Murray (D-Washington) and Ron Wyden (D-Oregon). Murray is trailing both of the leading Republican contenders and Ron Wyden appears to be looking up at his opponent as well.

A GOP candidate for U.S. Senator is favored by 37%, while a Democrat is favored by 36%, with the remaining 28% undecided. This is despite an 11-point Democrat edge over Republicans in voter registration.

− Just 44% believe Ron Wyden deserves reelection today, while 45% prefer a new person and 11% are unsure if they favor Wyden's reelection.
