Comparison of Clark 2016 Results and Piercy 2012 Opponents’ Results by Ward

Mike Clark received the same percentage citywide in May 2016 as Kitty Piercy’s two challengers did in May 2012. This disguises some significant variations.

First, Clark did much better in North Eugene (wards 4 and 5) and the South Hills (Ward 2). On the other hand, Clark did worse in West Eugene (wards 6, 7 and 8). That performance gap was worst in Ward 6 (Greg Evans’ ward and Pat Farr’s former ward).

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 replicating a minimum in support for a pro-business agenda.
