John Connolly Leads, According to Poll … Commissioned by Connolly’s Campaign
John Connolly’s early mayoral campaign launch appears to have paid dividends—at least, according to a poll commissioned by his own campaign. Although the Connolly campaign is neither confirming nor commenting on it, I have obtained and confirmed the results of the new poll:
John Connolly: 16%
Felix Arroyo: 10%
Dan Conley: 8%
Marty Walsh: 6%
Charles Yancey: 6%
Charlotte Golar-Richie: 6%
Rob Consalvo: 5%
Mike Ross: 5%
Bill Walczak: 3%
John Barros: 1%
The poll carries a margin of error of 4 percent.
Basically, according to this poll, we have a race at the start of the summer with Connolly well on his way to what he needs to get through the preliminary, Arroyo and Conley with a little advantage over the rest, and then a wide-open field behind them.
And, of course, one-third of the electorate is up for grabs.
