Undecided Still Dominates Eugene Mayoral Contest


Nearly three quarter of likely primary voters don’t know whom they would support for mayor. This is up slightly, but still very high. These percentages continue to be well below comparable levels the last time Eugene had an open seat, in 2003.

Eugene City Councilor Mike Clark still leads. James Manning and Lucy Vinis both gained, from 0% and “not included,” to 6%. The Vinis support seems to be the old Zelenka support (7% in January). This shift can be seen in the below graphic:


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 Eugene mayoral election were held today, would you vote for: Mike Clark, James Manning, Bob Cassidy, or Lucy Vinis [ROTATE NAMES]? IF DON’T KNOW: Which way would you lean?

METHODOLOGY: Live telephone interviews of 200 City of Eugene likely 2016 primary election voters were conducted the nights of July 20 and 21, 2015. The margin of error at the sample median is 7%. Totals may not add up to 100% due to rounding.
