Some Very Early 2016 Eugene Mayoral Polling

Mayor Kitty Piercy has announced she is not running for re-election in 2016 and the Register-Guard profiled six potential Eugene mayoral candidates. This post reports polling that shows where they stand. All six were included in the question.


Okay, this looks reasonably normal. However, notice the small percentages. The next graphic adds in the “don’t know” percentage.


At around 70 percent, the “don’t know” percentage swamps everything else.

BOTTOM LINE: The 2016 Eugene Mayoral contest starts out completely wide open.

QUESTION: As you may know, Kitty Piercy has announced she will not run for re-election as Mayor of Eugene. Several candidates have expressed a public interest in running for mayor. If the 2016 Eugene mayoral election were held today, would you vote for: Chris Pryor, Mike Clark, Alan Zelenka, James Manning, Bob Cassidy, or Laura Illig [ROTATE NAMES]? IF DON’T KNOW: Which way would you lean?

METHODOLOGY: 200 telephone interviews of likely City of Eugene 2016 Primary voters were conducted January 13-14, 2015. The margin of error at the sample median is 7 percent. Rounding may lead to totals different from 100 percent.
