State Treasurer Contest Tracking, Oregon 2012 General


The trend for the State Treasurer race differs from the Presidential and Secretary of State. Here there was a convergence in late September. After that, Wheeler pulled away. Here is an example of a low information contest. Wheeler, to date, had the lowest election expenditures of any of the three Democrats running statewide.

It should be noted that Cox was a write-in nominee in the Republican Primary and spent little money.

METHODOLOGY
The data come from five surveys composed of 200 live telephone interviews each conducted  September 17-18, October 1-2, October 15-16, October 22-23, and October 29-30, 2012. The margin of error on each survey is plus or minus 7 percent. Quotas were established to guarantee a representative sample of likelyOregon General Election voters.
