Predicting the next mayor

08/20/2008 5:44 PM by

On the heels of last week’s mayoral candidates debate, we ran a (certainly very unscientific) poll to see what kind of support each candidate might have…

The poll was up for a week, though the intent was to close it when there were more than 100 votes cast. The number jumped from 97 to 122 very quickly today and so here we are.

While the polling method is wildly flawed, there are definitely some takeaways and questions raised from this little experiment:

  • The undecided vote is probably much higher than this.
  • Lawrence Williams will not be our next mayor.
  • A Jones-Grey runoff would not be surprising; a Grey-Goldman runoff would be entertaining

It’ll be something to look back in 2 1/2 months and see how this stacks up to what really happens at the polls.
