image004

The storm water fee increase at a knife’s edge. One should expect all “Don’t Knows” would oppose the measure. In addition, since the dollar amount is not mentioned, the support level is probably biased upward.

IF SUPPORT/OPPOSE: Is that strongly or somewhat?
IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

Eugene Library Services Tax Supported

image002

A library measure is supported by 57%.

There are two points to note. First, the lack of a dollar amount means the support is a maximum and probably biased upward. Second, library measures in years past have usually done better than this. This could imply the city’s environment is relatively unfavorable.

QUESTION: Do you support or oppose  a property tax levy that would fund Eugene library services?
IF SUPPORT/OPPOSE: Is that strongly or somewhat?
IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

From the Archives … Eugene Mayoral Poll from May 2003

image002

Here’s how some potential candidates for Eugene’s 2004 Mayoral race stood in May 2003.

The sample doesn’t exactly match the one in the previous post. It is from May and a General election sample. That said, it’s clear that Miller and Piercy both had developed large citywide constituencies.

QUESTION: Now, looking at next year’s mayoral race. Some say Mayor Jim Torrey won’t run for re-election. Some people have already been mentioned as interested in running for mayor. If the election were held today, would you vote for David Kelly, Jeff Miller, Nancy Nathanson, or Kitty Piercy for Mayor ROTATE?

METHODOLOGY: 200 live telephone interviews of City of Eugene likely general election voters were conducted the nights of May 7 and 8, 2003. The margin of error at the sample median is 7%.

Some Very Early 2016 Eugene Mayoral Polling

Mayor Kitty Piercy has announced she is not running for re-election in 2016 and the Register-Guard profiled six potential Eugene mayoral candidates. This post reports polling that shows where they stand. All six were included in the question.

Okay, this looks reasonably normal. However, notice the small percentages. The next graphic adds in the “don’t know” percentage.

image001

At around 70 percent, the “don’t know” percentage swamps everything else.

BOTTOM LINE: The 2016 Eugene Mayoral contest starts out completely wide open.

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 2016 Eugene mayoral election were held today, would you vote for: Chris Pryor, Mike Clark, Alan Zelenka, James Manning, Bob Cassidy, or Laura Illig [ROTATE NAMES]? IF DON’T KNOW: Which way would you lean?

METHODOLOGY: 200 telephone interviews of likely City of Eugene 2016 Primary voters were conducted January 13-14, 2015. The margin of error at the sample median is 7 percent. Rounding may lead to totals different from 100 percent.
