Nearly one quarter of Seattle voters say they would re-elect Mayor Mike McGinn, according to a new KING 5 News poll. But even more voters say they remain undecided in the race.

SurveyUSA asked 552 registered voters over the weekend who they would vote for if the election were held today.

McGinn leads the way with 22 percent, but 23 percent of voters say they are undecided.

Next is Peter Steinbrueck with 17 percent, state Senator Ed Murray with 15 percent and Seattle City Councilmember Bruce Harrell with 12 percent.

Kate Martin and Charlie Staadecker have 4 percent and Mary Martin has 3 percent.

The margin of error is ± 4.3 percent.

In a similar poll in March, McGinn was tied with former King County Executive Ron Sims for the lead with 15 percent, followed by Seattle City Councilmember Tim Burgess with 10 percent. But since then, Sims reportedly said he would not enter the race. Burgess announced last Friday he was dropping out.

The number of undecideds in the March poll was 34 percent.
