Overall Vote Compared – 2012 and 2016 Eugene Mayoral Elections

This graphic compares the vote percentages for mayor in 2012 and 2016. It assigns the percentages into three categories. The assumptions are 1. that the minor candidates in 2016 were winning votes from the left and 2. that the two Piercy challengers in 2012 were from the right.

This leaves us with the interesting result that Clark received the same percentage as Piercy’s two challengers in 2012 – thus┬áreplicating a minimum in support for a pro-business agenda.
