Two weeks before ballots are counted, a new KING 5 News poll finds voters are leaning toward approving new rules to label genetically engineered foods. But there are enough undecided voters that it could go either way.
Voters will decide on Initiative 522 whether most raw and processed foods, seeds and seed stocks should have a genetically engineered label.
The poll of 546 likely Washington state voters, conducted by SurveyUSA, found 45 percent say they are certain to vote yes while 38 percent are certain to vote no. Sixteen percent say they are not certain.
Support is strongest among younger voters while older voters oppose the measure. I-522 appears to be passing in Seattle and running about 50/50 in the rest of the state.
