From the Stothert camp:
The Tarrance Group, a nationally renowned polling firm, surveyed 300 likely Mayoral Runoff election voters throughout Omaha from April 7 to April 9. The poll was conducted before the Stothert campaign began airing its first television advertisement of the general election.
The poll shows Stothert making strong inroads with independents and women voters, leading by 19 and 13 points respectively.
“Jim Suttle’s base of support is eroding after four years of mismanagement, tax hikes, and an inexcusable spike in violent crime,” said Stothert campaign manager Ryan Horn. “Omahans are rallying behind Jean because she’ll provide the strong leadership our city needs and work tirelessly to protect taxpayers and make our streets safer.”
Other notes from the poll:
- Stothert leads Suttle by 19% among Independent voters
- 62% of voters have a favorable impression of Stothert
- 8% are undecided
As noted above, sample was from 300 likely voters, April 7-9, 5.8% MOE.
