All your hard work is paying off! A new public opinion survey from one of America’s leading pollsters show Matt is now one of the two front-runners in the race for Mayor, ten points ahead of his nearest rival for the run-off election. As you may know, the top two finishers in the June primary election advance to the run-off in November.
The survey of 587 voters completed last week shows Matt now at 17 percent, Raul Peralez at 7 percent, Dev Davis at 5 percent while long-term incumbent Cindy Chavez begins the race at 27 percent.
While this is very good news for sure – the best news of the poll is we see what happens when we knock on every door and reach every voter with Matt’s message of accountability, common sense and change.
After hearing brief and positive descriptions of the candidates, the kind of descriptions voters will read in their ballot handbooks, Matt is supported by 29 percent of voters, Dev Davis is supported by twelve percent and Raul Peralez by 8 percent with Chavez topping out at 32 percent.
This poll is telling us – if we get our message out, we will advance to the November run-off virtually tied with a long-term incumbent who represents the status quo.
But we need to make sure we can print the mailers and fund the messaging that reaches every San José voter.
