Piercy Approval Trend During Library Campaign


Mayor Piercy’s job performance rating declined during the library campaign. Earlier posts have pointed out how important the mayor’s standing is for measures. These include: http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=9415 and http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=12379. This implies that her ratings decline during the campaign hurt the support for the library measure. The library’s win supports the notion of a comeback during the final week.

It is not clear why this decline occurred, but it also happened in the 2013 fee campaign (http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=9267). However, that measure, unlike the library, lost in a landslide.

QUESTION: How would you rate the job Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy is doing: excellent, good, fair, poor?

METHODOLOGY: 200 live telephone interviews of likely City of Eugene November 2015 Special Election voters were conducted October 14-15, 2015 and again on October 26-27, 2015 for a total of 400 interviews. The margin of error at the sample median for each survey was plus or minus 7%. Percentages may not add up to 100% due to rounding.
