Ward 40: O'Connor Safe
Long-time Alderman to cruise to easy victory
CHICAGO, IL - Ogden & Fry, conducted a 1-Question Poll for Aldertrack on Sunday, February 1, 2015 for 40th Ward Alderman with 525 respondents. Respondents were selected by random sampling of likely voters.
Margin of Error +/- 4.36% at 95% Confidence Interval
Despite reports of strong efforts by Daleiden to reach out to voters, long-time Alderman and Emanuel's City Council floor leader, Patrick O'Connor holds a strong lead. Running against incumbents in Chicago has always been extremely difficult and this race is no exception.
Since most activity in Municipal Elections occurs in the last 2 weeks, there is still room for further development in this race, but the final order won't change.
