MAYORAL RACE WIDE OPEN IN CLOSING STRETCH WITH JERRY JOYCE POSITIONED TO CAPTURE UNDECIDED VOTERS
CHICAGO- A poll commissioned by mayoral candidate Jerry Joyce shows him to be in a position of growing strength as the race for Chicago Mayor hits the home stretch.
The poll showed candidate Lori Lightfoot leading the race with 17 percent of the vote followed by Toni Preckwinkle and Willie Wilson. Candidates Gery Chico and William Daley were at 11 percent and Joyce and Susana Mendoza at 10 percent.
According to the poll, conducted Feb. 14-15 of 524 likely voters, Joyce is within the margin of error of all but one candidate ahead of him and was a top choice of voters polled who remain undecided in the race. With Election Day just five days away, the Joyce poll showed 20 percent of voters have not yet chosen a candidate from the crowded field.
“As we head into the final weekend, the race for mayor is wide open and our strong and energized group of volunteers will be out in every neighborhood of Chicago to continue to spread our message of authentic change and get the vote out,” said Joyce.
