Sun Poll predicted mayoral primary
The results of Baltimore’s Democratic primary election are in — and they show the accuracy of The Sun Poll.
The survey conducted by the Annapolis polling firm OpinionWorks last month predicted the order in which the mayoral challengers finished and, after distributing the undecided respondents among the candidates, gave a good approximation of their shares of the vote:
Candidate Poll response / Primary vote
Stephanie Rawlings-Blake 50 percent / 52 percent
Catherine E. Pugh 12 / 25
Otis Rolley 10 / 13
Joseph T. “Jody” Landers III 5 / 7
Frank M. Conaway Sr. 5 / 3
Wilton Wilson 0 / 0
Undecided 18 / n/a
The Baltimore Sun commissioned the OpinionWorks to conduct the survey of 742 likely Democratic primary voters on their mayoral picks and other issues from Aug. 22 to 24.
