Ward 7: Holmes at 15%
Half of 7th Ward Still Undecided
CHICAGO, IL - Ogden & Fry, conducted a 1-Question Poll on behalf of Aldertrack, Tuesday, February 3, 2015 for Alderman of the 7th Ward with 491 respondents.
Respondents were selected by random sampling of likely voters.
|LaShonda "Shonnie" Curry||27||7.1%|
|Joseph Moseley II||20||4.1%|
|Flora "Flor" Digby||16||3.3%|
Natashia Holmes has a slight lead with only 15% of the vote in a crowded field of eight candidates. Often voters in African-American communities break late, so it is not surprising to see half the respondents undecided. Building brand identity is very expensive and in a crowded field, money will play a large factor deciding who makes the runoff.
Since most activity in Municipal Elections occurs in the last 2 weeks, there is still room for further development in this race.
Ogden & Fry strives to increase the accuracy of political polling by measuring voters most likely to vote based on voter history. Voting is a socialized behavior with predictable reliability and consistency.
Ogden & Fry maintains a database with 20 years of voting history. For Chicago Aldermanic elections, likely voters are randomly selected from voters who voted in at least 1 of the last 3 elections.
